Aircraft Wheels and Brakes
Brake 'n' Roll
High quality for stop and go
We offer the complete range of wheels and brakes overhaul services for all types of Boeing and Airbus aircraft as well as popular regional aircraft types from Embraer and Bombardier.
High training standards, strategic material purchasing alliances and largely automated processes ensure high quality, competitive pricing and short turnaround times for our customers.
You can entrust us with all necessary work – from tire or heatsink changes to complete overhaul services, including minor and major repairs.. Each wheel or brake passes through numerous stations until finally, after a thorough check - it is approved in the final inspection and release to service.
Everything but reinventing
Our wheels services include tire changes, extensive non-destructive testing, major repairs and modifications to prolong component life. The complete overhaul records are documented in a work shop data system and are available upon demand within our extensive network.
…wheels can be repaired and overhauled in our facility in Frankfurt per year
Non-stop for a perfect stop
We perform about 5,000 brake repair and overhauls yearly. Our capability includes steel and carbon and E-brake overhauls for major aircraft types. High quality re-works of all structural parts and rotor discs ensure low scrap rates and thus lower material costs and improved Total Cost of Ownership costs for fleets.
Dedicated Workshop for Wheels and Brakes
Modern efficient housing
A state-of-the-art industrial facility with 14,5000m2 of gross floor space on a 35,000 m2 plot houses our wheel and brake workshop in Frankfurt, Germany. Thanks to optimized processes, tailored logistics and the latest plant equipment, this site enables the cost-effective supply of wheels and brakes for flight operations for customers in Europe, Africa and the Asia Pacific Area and beyond. Some 27,000 wheels and 5,000 brakes were repaired in the former workshop on the airport site in 2016 – the new production facilities now expands our capacity to 32,000+ or 6,000+ events per year.
