QANTAS has selected Nosecone to produce Rolls Royce / Boeing INA service platforms that allow for safe maintenance access for mechanical services inside Boeing 747 engines. Multiple platforms have been ordered for Mascot, Tullamarine and Avalon Service facilities as part of an OH&S and Service facility upgrade. Ryman Composites (then known as NoseCone Manufacturing) upgraded the parts, reducing weight, improving strength and damage resistance, adding improved location systems, part identification, improved part to part recessed catches and more accurate fitment.
