When Martin-Baker Aircraft Co. Ltd the worlds longest established and most experienced manufacturer of Ejection Seats and related survival equipment required a technical foam converter they looked no further than Foam Engineers Limited.
We were asked to manufacture a set of comfort pads for the Joint Strike Fighter US16E Ejection Seat and were only too pleased to be part of this prestigious project.
Due to the magnitude and rate of application of the forces exerted on the aircrew during the ejection sequence, additional protection had to be incorporated into the Ejection Seat to better support the head and body. Working together with Martin-Baker we manufactured our most complex 3D shapes to date in Zotefoam’s Plastazote® foam using our 3-axis router.
Michael Clare, New Business Development Manager commented.
“Our close proximity to Martin-Baker allowed us to work hand in hand with their Design Office discussing different designs and manufacturing methods. When it came to the manufacturing stage Foam Engineers has strived hard to earn ISO9001 quality accreditation and together with our Airbus approval I knew these two significant standards meant we were the best company to meet the stringent requirements of this world renowned company.”
