Wings of the future

GKN Aerospace is helping lead the way in wing design for future aircraft. It is participating in a number of UK research programmes focused on using new manufacturing technologies and more cost effective processes to create lighter, more fuel efficient aircraft.

Together with industrial partners, research institutions and the UK Government, GKN Aerospace is working to develop and demonstrate new manufacturing techniques that will enable the UK aerospace industry to build wings for tomorrow’s aircraft.

It is focusing on creating a new generation of automated processes and technologies that will extend the boundaries of what we are able to manufacture, while at the same time increasing the quality, consistency and speed of production.
