Airbus picks LTTS for digital manufacturing

Airbus named L&T Technology Services (LTTS), an India-based global pure-play engineering services company, as strategic engineering partner for providing advanced engineering capabilities and digital manufacturing services under a multi-year contract.

A listed subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro, LTTS is focused on engineering and R&D services and offers consultancy, design, development and testing services across the product and process development life cycle.

Under this agreement, LTTS will support Airbus in key verticals and technology areas for its ongoing commercial and innovation programs.

The development is a major step forward in the long-standing partnership between LTTS and Airbus. LTTS is a strategic engineering supplier for Airbus globally and for its India subsidiary, providing engineering services across verticals like engineering, avionics and digital.

As a part of the new contract award, LTTS engineers will support Airbus’ Numerical Control Programming (NCP) Cluster, which includes composite production, trimming and cutting, standard machining, advanced machining, drilling and riveting, control and metrology, fast shop machining and technical support.

LTTS will also be driving the design and stress support for advanced capabilities, which include thermal analysis, vulnerability assessment, advanced failure analysis, manufacturing simulation, and modeling services.

The engineering support will be executed from LTTS’ offshore locations in Bengaluru, India and its recently inaugurated near shore centre in Toulouse, France, along with onsite support at Airbus locations in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Spain.

“The recent selection of LTTS by Airbus is a reaffirmation of our deep domain leadership and industry-leading expertise in driving a redefinition of the global ER&D  landscape,” said Amit Chadha, CEO and managing director of LTTS.

“As we continue to move ahead on our objective of being counted among the largest and the best global ER&D firms, the acknowledgement and support of an industry leader like Airbus is exciting and serves to inspire us for the next milestone,” the CEO added.
