Meggitt to supply carbon brakes to AirbusThe UK-based engineering group Meggitt has finalised a long-term agreement with Airbus to supply its new NuCarb carbon brake system for the A321neo aircraft programme.

The company will also provide a new set of wheels designed to improve the performance of the A321neo. It is expected that these two technologies will help Airbus to increase the aircraft’s gross take-off load, improve other performance parameters and reduce operating costs.

Meggitt chief operating officer Tony Wood said: “We broke new ground with Airbus two decades ago, and we are proud to be doing so again by pairing our NuCarb technology with the A321neo.”

After delivery, the brakes will undergo a flight testing and certification programme that has been developed by Meggitt in conjunction with Airbus’s A321neo launch schedule.

Meggitt makes NuCarb brakes at its carbon-manufacturing facility in Danville, Kentucky (USA). The partnership between
the two companies dates back two decades, when they collaborated on the design of the first A321 aircraft wheel and brake system.

Meanwhile, Meggitt recently secured a contract from Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China to supply door safety systems for its C919 aircraft.

Production of the system is set to be carried out at the firm’s Simi Valley site in California next year.
