Greene Tweed has developed and implemented a complex-shape composite component NDT capability, known as Xyscan®, for complex-shape composite components that have proven to be impossible or impractical to evaluate using traditional NDT methods, such as ultrasonic. Xyscan® is capable of providing both 2D and 3D imaging to support detailed process validation, damage tolerance requirements, geometrical measurements, and production defect detection.

This Nadcap accreditation, coupled with the investment in equipment and capability, enables Greene Tweed to perform in-house DDA NDT of production composite hardware for commercial aircraft. To achieve this standard, Greene Tweed’s Quality Department completed a rigorous and comprehensive audit against the stringent requirements of Nadcap accreditation.

This accreditation enhances Greene Tweed’s responsiveness to new product development requests for composite components, while continuing to expand our capabilities for more challenging production product requirements. It also enhances the company’s capability to meet the increasing production build rates for complex-shape composite components in new aircraft.

“The Greene Tweed Quality Team overcame a variety of obstacles to achieve this accreditation and achieving it is a testament to their talent and dedication,” said Hugh McCall, Quality Engineer and Nadcap NDT Project Leader. “This accreditation demonstrates Greene Tweed’s willingness to meet and exceed customer expectations while providing the most efficient means to do so.”

Greene Tweed produces a variety of Xycomp® DLF® complex-shape components based on high-performance carbon fiber-reinforced thermoplastic materials, offering weight reduction, parts consolidation, corrosion resistance, and other benefits of metal replacement. Xycomp® DLF® components are currently in service across numerous major commercial aircraft models.

Nadcap (the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is a global cooperative accreditation program for aerospace engineering, defense, and related industries. The Nadcap program is administered by the Performance Review Institute (PRI), and was established in 1990 by SAE International.

Henley & Partners Enlarges Executive Committee to Manage Expansion and Growth14.12.2018 17:00Tiedote

Residence- and citizenship-by-investment programs have firmly established themselves over the past few years as the new frontier in terms of freedom, flexibility, and future-readiness, both for the countries issuing these programs and for the individual investors participating in them. The societal and economic value these programs generate is undisputed. The investment migration industry as a whole is currently grossing roughly USD 18 billion per year, with an expectation that it will hit the USD 20 billion mark very soon. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is now considered the lifeblood of economic growth for many developing and recovering smaller countries around the world. As such, the number of investment migration programs has been increasing rapidly, from just a handful of programs in the 1980s and 1990s to over 100 countries that now have investment migration provisions in their laws. There are more than 60 active programs today, with Moldova and Montenegro — both fast-growing Eu

Vargatef® plus docetaxel could be an option after failure of immunotherapy in lung cancer14.12.2018 12:07Tiedote

Boehringer Ingelheim announced today the first interim results of VARGADO, an ongoing non-interventional study in routine clinical practice in Germany evaluating the efficacy and safety of Vargatef® (nintedanib) and docetaxel in patients with stage III/IV locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) of adenocarcinoma histology. The study consists of three cohorts, two of which allow for prior treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) either in combination with chemotherapy in the first-line or as monotherapy in the second-line of treatment. The interim results from Cohort B (first-line chemotherapy, second-line immune checkpoint inhibitors, third-line Vargatef® plus docetaxel) were presented today at ESMO Immuno-Oncology Congress 2018 in Geneva.1 Despite a limited sample size, the VARGADO study adds to the body of evidence for nintedanib in lung adenocarcinoma following pre-treatment with chemotherapy and ICIs.1,3 The addition of nintedanib to docetaxel ha
