At the onset of booming aviation industry, the market for Tube Ducts & Hose Assemblies in the aerospace industry will grow to an estimated $1.5 billion in 2024 (Stratview Research). Tubes and Hoses in aircrafts serve a very critical purpose of conduit of fuel, oxygen and several other fluids, but only a handful companies across the global market are fit to cater to this unique niche. Mysore-based Rangsons Schuster Technologies (RST) is one of the industrial members that specialize in creating these arteries of the giant metal bird while ensuring maximum quality, customer orientation and security parameter.
One of the early entrants of this business segment in India, RST is an AS 9100D Certified manufacturer and exporter of Rigid Tube Assemblies, Flexible Hose Assemblies and Precision Machined parts, catering to national and international aerospace players. It has an extensive experience in planning, designing and manufacturing flexible as well as rigid hoses and tube systems ranging from minuscule 3mm to mammoth 153mm in diameter for the aircraft. The team aids the client’s aircraft upgrade project as well as manufactures hoses and tubes according to drawings, samples or prototypes of the hoses and tubes for the aircraft.
“We are the first Indian company in the industry with a globally trained team. We have collaborated with an Israeli organization for knowledge as well as technology and have further tie-ups with UK
and U.S. based organizations who help us refine the final products via rigorous rounds of testing,” states Pavan Ranga, Director, RST. The company also limits the grounding time of an aircraft by modeling the product at customer site with the help of in-house computerised & potable device which screens a tube or part of an assembly using laser technology. It immediately produces the resulting measurements, which can help create a detailed drawing. Further reinforcing the technical capabilities, RST is also equipped with 100 percent in-house facilities and additional provision for Non-Destructive Testing for FPI, MPI, and RT, which makes it a service provider to reckon with at its Mysore unit.
