ExecuJet MRO Services in Malaysia has expanded its in-house airframe and engine MRO capabilities to include zinc-nickel and cadmium electroplating technology. It also added engine fan case removal and installation.
With the ability to offer zinc-nickel and cadmium electroplating—which involves applying a thin layer of the material to metal airframe parts to protect against surface corrosion—the company no longer has to outsource that work, explained ExecuJet MRO regional v-p for Asia Ivan Lim. “Having this technology in-house allows ExecuJet to have better control over the workflow for airframe heavy maintenance checks and ultimately provide better turnaround times,” he added.
The company also bolstered its engine maintenance capabilities after technicians there completed the first removal and installation of the engine fan case on a Dassault Falcon 7X, which was done in tandem with the trijet’s base maintenance check. “The team performed the task smoothly,” Lim noted. “We have invested in the necessary tools and spare parts to perform this critical maintenance task, among others.”
