Aerospace

The aerospace industry is a complex market in which aircraft, airports and Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul Centres need to coordinate their activities to provide an efficient and cost-effective service. Aircraft and equipment maintenance is a substantial challenge, as it has a significant impact on a company’s financial results in terms of aircraft downtime or recurring operating costs.

100% equipment safety and traceability

Maintenance

The objective of any airline is to guarantee the safety and security of their aircraft. Numerous maintenance tasks are carried out to check the status of a device and its equipment.

Traceability

The supply chain operators need to maintain the traceability of parts throughout their service life. This ensures that data is monitored and therefore guarantees the safety of aircraft during their service life.

Environment

Whether inside or outside the cabin, during flight an aircraft has internal pressure-related environmental constraints or external temperatures.

FLYtag skin

A flexible & engravable tag, compatible with any material

MAINtag’s latest innovation, the FLYtag skin, available in three different sizes, is both flexible and engravable. The tag can stick perfectly to curved surfaces. It can be laser engraved to add hard-wearing visual information.

In fact, FLYtag Skin tags are extremely sturdy in terms of their adhesion and they can withstand harsh external factors. They can still operate in extreme temperatures thanks to survival temperatures of between -50°C and 150°C. They have also been developed to withstand contact with most chemical and corrosive products. They are compatible with any material.

This range is therefore perfect for use inside or outside the cabin.

FLYtag nano

With its small size, this tag is ideal for tracking maintenance

The FLYtag and Flytag nano solutions can maintain and centralise your operations monitoring and provide assured traceability for the entire service life of the respective equipment, namely more than 30 years, in compliance with the ATA Spec 2000 specification. These tags also have a large memory and are capable of saving a multitude of maintenance data.

FLYtag nano, with its 14mm diameter, is one of the smallest certified RFID tags for civil aviation flights. It can therefore be attached to tiny metal surfaces.

FLYtag manager

A customised software for full solution control

The FLYtag manager solution has been specifically designed for the aerospace industry.

Fully compliant with the latest version of the ATA Spec 2000 standard, with FLYtag manager users can initialise labels, code a large quantity of electronic data and access embedded information even without being connected to a network. Once connected, data is automatically synchronised with a local database and the user’s information system.

Wet inlay

RFID labels for indoor application

Wet inlays are designed to be used inside the cabin. For example, they make it possible to identify and see the expiry date of all the life jackets on-board.

Then all a technician needs to do is walk through the cabin with a reader to obtain the data of the identified equipment within a maximum range of 6 metres. All integrated tag data is centralised in an application server.

Less expensive than RFID tags, labels are ideal for marking parts with a limited service life. However, they are not compatible with conductive surfaces.

 

Optimise your maintenance tasks

These solutions ensure that parts that have been identified over time can be tracked. These also drastically reduce maintenance time: a manual process takes approximately 14 hours, while a device with RFID chips can inspect an aircraft in less than thirty minutes.

With 2 million chips distributed within the aerospace sector, MAINtag has become the on-board RFID chip benchmark.
