“Cascade”, an aircraft nacelle component made with CFRP, plays an important role to control thrust reversed airflow for the efficient and safe landings. In addition to the aircraft braking system, thrust reverser is the system within the nacelle that contributes to the aircraft landing in a shorter distance. Nikkiso has grown to take over 90% of world’s market share of composite Cascades since the Nikkiso’s first delivery in 1983.
Nikkiso Miyazaki factory has been completed in October 2018 to add capacity for the high demand of Cascade due to the current increasing aircraft demand all over the world. The first shipment was made for Airbus A320 neo, and Miyazaki Factory is also planning to ship Cascades for Boeing program in April.
Nikkiso Miyazaki’s mission is to be focused on advanced manufacturing engineering to win new programs for various components of the aircraft, and also to continue on-time delivery with high quality standard of Nikkiso Aerospace’s core product, composite Cascades.
