9T Labs to supply drone parts

Dufour Aerospace has selected 9T Labs to supply structural composite connectors such as brackets and hinges for its Aero2 drone.

“The importance of the smaller parts of an aircraft is often underestimated when it comes to contributing to weight,” said Simon Bendrey, head of design at Dufour. “With 9T Labs, we have found a partner who is supporting us in exactly this critical area with surprisingly lightweight composite structural parts, without us having to make compromises in terms of durability and strength.”

“Replacing a number of structural metal parts with highest performing thermoplastic composites will help Dufour Aerospace  achieve the ambitious weight targets for the Aero2 program,” added Giovanni Cavolina, co-founder and CCO of 9T Labs.
