In Charge of Developing and Manufacturing Key Components of the Flap Drive System on Boeing 747-8 Aircraft

Shimadzu is responsible for developing and manufacturing a set of key components used in the flap drive systems on Boeing's latest 747-8 large commercial aircraft. This recognizes Shimadzu's nearly half-century track record in the development and production of many different types of onboard aircraft equipment, as well as the experience gained developing the US-2 and P-1/XC-2 flap drive systems. Shimadzu's technology is attracting attention in skies all over the world.

Air Management Systems

These systems perform the integrated control of air-related systems, such as air-conditioning systems, cabin pressurization systems, bleed air systems, and anti-ice systems. They ensure the comfort of passengers in aircraft flying at high altitudes, and maintain an optimal on-board environment in accordance with the aircraft's thermal load and mission requirements.

Cockpit Display Systems

Utilizing advanced electronics and optics technology, Shimadzu provides display systems such as head-up displays (HUDs) and projection-type head-down displays (HDDs), which show various types of flight information superimposed on images of the outside world. These systems help reduce pilot workload and increase flight safety.
