Sigma preparing to fly high at Paris Airshow

15 Jun 2017 Published by

Sigma Components will showcase the latest products from its SigmaLite range of lightweight aerospace components, alongside traditionally-manufactured components for aero-engine and airframe applications, at this year’s Paris Airshow (Hall 2B, Stand G171).


The company, which has manufacturing facilities across the UK and low cost operations in China, will also mark the 10th anniversary of its Chinese operations at the show.


As well as celebrating this important landmark, Sigma will update customers on increased capacity and expanded capabilities across its businesses, including the latest innovations from its R&D programmes.


Mark Johnson, founder and CEO of Sigma Components, said: “While Sigma started out as a make-to-print manufacturer, we’ve invested heavily to develop our R&D and new product introduction capabilities over the last few years, creating centres of excellence in Farnborough, Hinckley and Nuneaton (UK).


“This capability, combined with our production manufacturing and after-market expertise means we can offer customers complete product lifecycle management.


“Our vision is to support customers by combining the agility, speed and cost structures of a local source with access to a truly global capability, while innovating to keep them at the forefront of their market. It’s an approach that is proving popular with both aerospace OEMs and Tier 1 customers around the world.”


Sigma’s flagship SigmaLite range includes ground-breaking COMPipe technology – a braided composite pipe for aero-engines and airframes that offers up to 50% weight savings over traditional components; redesigned end fittings using additive manufacturing techniques; and composite drive shaft technologies.”
