PARIS, June 19, 2023/PRNewswire/ -- Supernal LLC (the Company) and Qarbon Aerospace, Inc. today announced a partnership to refine component welding techniques for future production-scale electric takeoff and delivery vehicles. vertical landing (eVTOL). This is the first of two agreements that Supernal will announce with prestigious aerospace manufacturers at the Paris Air Show, as the company works to develop a novel manufacturing process that will enable the advanced air mobility industry to meet anticipated demand. for the next decades.

As a leading manufacturer of composite components and assemblies for commercial and military aircraft and spacecraft, Qarbon Aerospace will work with Supernal to apply its induction brazing technology to the assembly of the company's carbon thermoplastic vehicle components. The companies will work to extend Qarbon Aerospace's established welding process, developing a manufacturing roadmap to meet future eVTOL vehicle order demands.

In the words of Jaiwon Shin, Chairman of Hyundai Motor Group and CEO of Supernal: "Supernal is delighted to partner with Qarbon Aerospace to advance manufacturing processes for advanced air mobility vehicles. By incorporating advanced materials and processes into our strategy of manufacturing from the ground up, Supernal will be prepared to expand eVTOL vehicle production capacity to meet peak demand when the industry takes off."

With its "right product, right market at the right time" approach, Supernal is investing a lot of time and resources in creating a new way of manufacturing aircraft that brings together exacting aerospace certification standards and high-speed production technologies from the automotive In the current phase, the company is partnering with major aerospace providers, such as Qarbon Aerospace, to improve the processes and costs associated with joining lighter components for their eVTOL vehicles. In parallel, Supernal is working with Hyundai Motor Group to create a roadmap to integrate the auto giant's automated manufacturing technologies into a scalable digital factory model, which will further reduce aircraft production time and cost.

"We are very pleased that Supernal has chosen Qarbon Aerospace's unique thermoplastic welding technology to enable high-speed fabrication of their eVTOL vehicle structure," said Pete Wick, CEO of Qarbon Aerospace. "Supernal's deliberate approach to carefully selecting and integrating early-on technology that enables high-speed manufacturing sets its eVTOL vehicle apart in the AAM arena, and we are proud that our technology will support Supernal's inevitable success. in the AAM industry".

Supernal's partnership with Qarbon Aerospace is part of the company's "open ecosystem" approach to respond to the specific technology needs of the AAM sector. The company plans to expand its portfolio of manufacturing partners to other vehicle components besides the airframe.

Supernal and Qarbon Aerospace will hold a partnership signing ceremony at the Paris Air Show on Tuesday, June 20, at the Qarbon booth.
