Airbus Selects Eaton to Provide Conveyance Products for New A350 XWB Passenger Jets; Design Optimizes Safety and Reduces Aircraft Weight

CLEVELAND … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced that it has been selected by Airbus to provide conveyance components for 250 new A350 XWB commercial passenger jets in production through 2017. Eaton's components serve key functions in the aircraft's environmental control system (ECS), which supports cabin safety and air quality, and the single-joint design also helps reduce overall aircraft weight. The contract value has not been disclosed.

Eaton will supply pneumatic couplings, flanges and seals required to secure ducts in the ECS and maintain a safe and comfortable passenger cabin. Eaton's unique design, which can be found on the vast majority of fixed-wing aircraft in production today, incorporates the three products into a complete joint, optimizing weight savings and ease of installation.

"Eaton's extensive experience in aerospace components, years of flight service and talented employees are important factors in delivering the highest levels of safety and reliability to our customers," said Andy Weeks, general manager of Eaton's conveyance systems division. "We're pleased to provide component support to Airbus for all variants of the A350 XWB platform that will improve aircraft performance, and also reduce overall aircraft weight to increase fuel efficiency."

Components for the A350 XWB will be manufactured at Eaton's aerospace facility in Beltsville, Md.
