Technical textiles specialist goes mobile

Technical textiles weaver Arville will present its specialist capabilities directly to UK aerospace manufacturers as part of a major tour. The company is one of a small number of key suppliers handpicked to take centre stage in the two-week ADS Defence and Aerospace Technology Roadshow this September.

The tour, calling at strategic UK defence and aerospace sites, is an opportunity to present the latest innovations and developments directly to high-level decision makers within the aerospace industry.

Visits are planned to Rolls-Royce in Derby, Leonardo (Selex) in Luton, Thales in Crawley, BAE or Airbus in Bristol, Cobham Mission Systems in Wimborne, Ultra PALS in Cheltenham, Agusta Westland in Yeovil and GE Aviation in Cheltenham.

Arville, which has been weaving fabrics for over 60 years, says it is looking forward to speaking directly with key personnel in research and development, technical and design roles about its capabilities to produce bespoke fabrics – which are engineered to be lighter, stronger and offer increasingly more sophisticated physical characteristics.

The company’s expertise in technical textiles has contributed to a well-established reputation as a specialist in the field, with an extensive customer base covering more than 50 countries worldwide. “The ADS Roadshow event is a real opportunity to make supplier resource more accessible to UK aerospace players,” commented Andy Smith, Group Head of Marketing at Arville.

“We anticipate that our involvement will help lead to further growth and integration of Arville fabrics at the initial design stages of major projects. Decision makers, designers and specifiers from the large players in these sectors are not always aware of just what can be achieved, in terms of textiles developed especially with their application in mind.”

Arville has a long-established history of working with defence contractors in the aerospace industry, in the design and supply of high-specification fabrics and pre-fabricated textile components, which are used in a variety of complex applications in both military and civilian aircraft and helicopters.

The company’s products are used in aircraft for a growing range of purposes, including hi-spec fire resistant and flame-proof fabrics for in-flight and structural applications including insulation materials, seating reinforcements, screens, covers, ducting, flexible fuel cells, ballistic and crash protection systems.
