Rockwood Composites and Haeco Cabin Solutions have formed a partnership focusing on aircraft seating. Haeco has commissioned Rockwood to tool its new cabin platform for seat shells and console work. This bespoke seat will feature compound, molded surfaces and respective tooling design.

Rockwood says that it aimed to design a lightweight structure with enough modularity to allow Haeco to contend with future permutations of the product. While the shapes used in this class are not new, the scale and industrial design are reportedly a first of a kind for this kind of cabin.

‘We were looking for a way to optimize these structures for weight, strength, and manufacturability,’ said Jose Pevida, HAECO senior vice president.
