Nearly 200 people are employed in the Surface Technology Group, which is part of Engine Maintenance Operations at United Airlines, San Francisco International Airport. Engines routinely over-hauled and serviced in San Fran-cisco include the CFM56, P-W 2000- and 4000- series engines, the JT8D and JT9D, the CF6, and the APUs. Engine Maintenance Operations' goal is to be able to overhaul 725 engines per year, in addition to airframe work.
The 30th anniversary of the plating department occurs in 1997, and United Airlines has been adding new equipment, updating and automating process lines, and incorporating new technologies in efforts to increase its efficiency and quality.
Highlights of this outstanding plant tour will include:
- Plating/Shotpeen Work Center-Plating processes include hard chromium, nickel, silver, bright and matte cadmium, and anodizing.
- You'll see how United Airlines eliminated degreasing and reduced the use of hazardous chemicals.
- Waterjet blasters are used for stripping of coatings.
- A computer-controlled aqueous spray washer has drastically reduced cleaning time.
- The 8000 ft 2 critical cleaning area, which includes an
18-stage, automated cleaning line.
- Plasma spray operations United Airlines employs many of the latest technologies. The company has an excellent track record in continuous process improvement.
