Food on board an aircraft is to be light and easily digestible. Being lightweight is a requirement for the kitchens on board (called galleys), too - and nonetheless they need to be able to withstand large physical loads. Bucher Leichtbau AG, Switzerland, is a leading manufacturer of galleys and cabinets installed in passenger aircraft and therefore places its trust in stringent testing of its modules to ensure their airworthiness. In the test bench on board: The complete measurement chain from HBM.
Technologies and systems used in the aircraft industry need to comply with stringent rules and regulations. Special evidence regarding statics is required to prove the airworthiness of aircraft cabin installations. This also applies to the galleys used on board.
Conditions on board are particularly tough for the galleys. To ensure maximum efficiency, galley modules need to be extremely lightweight - and, on the other hand, must withstand extreme loading.
