Apache Airframe Kits

Klune provides a complete Kit of components for the Apache Helicopter Airframe. This includes Brake formed, Hydro formed and complex 5-Axis machined parts.

Challenge

Klune has to manage 1,200+ components that are either manufactured directly by Klune Industries or sourced from a complex supplier network. The kitting process is executed in our North Hollywood division before being shipped to the Apache production line.

Remedy

An Integrated Program Management Team (IPT) has been dedicated to the program. The process also involves IT assisted part management supported by a specific software package and a discrete kitting area has been set-up especially for this program.

Results

Klune Industries has been running this program for the Apache for 6+ years, supporting a high build-rate and meeting our customer's quality and delivery requirements.
