Within a 2-3 year period, a total of 86,400 flights are simulated which is three times the expected service life. The PERI UP working scaffold allows test preparations as well as continuous measurement and inspection work to be carried out during the EF-2 testing phase.

Approval tests on the new wide-bodied Airbus A350 XWB in a specially erected testing facility

Scaffold solution for test preparations as well as continuous measurement and inspection work

Time-consuming fatigue tests on the fuselage and wings through a simulation of 86,400 flights (equivalent to three times the expected service life) within a period of 2-3 years

Two different endurance tests: EF-2 test (middle fuselage section including centre wing box and both wings) and EW test (systematic application of stress on the wing up to the analytical breaking load point)

The recipe for success is the modularity and adaptability of the PERI UP scaffolding system – as well as the combinability with other products in the PERI portfolio. Furthermore, the project support provided by the PERI engineers was very professional and extremely positive.
