Lilium has signed an agreement with DENSO for technical assistance in optimizing production at scale of the Lilium Jet’s electric engine.
DENSO will support Lilium in developing equipment and tooling for an efficient, scalable production ramp-up and preparing automation for high-volume production of the Lilium Jet engine and its subsystems.
DENSO will be sharing nearly 75 years of expertise with Lilium to design reliable, competitive, high-volume manufacturing processes. DENSO is currently supplying the stator and rotor subsystems of the Lilium Jet engine as part of its alliance with Honeywell, a tier-one aerospace supplier to Lilium.
Yves Yemsi, COO of Lilium, said; “We’re delighted to be able to intensify our cooperation with DENSO and draw on their wealth of experience as we move towards industrializing the engine assembly. With DENSO’s support, we look forward to creating and implementing scalable solutions for high-volume production of the Lilium Jet engine.”
Koji Ishizuka, Senior Director Urban Air Mobility at DENSO, added; “At DENSO, we aim to power the shift towards safe, sustainable, and seamless mobility for all. Through our cooperation with Lilium, we see the potential to accelerate this shift and welcome the opportunity to support the development of large-scale sustainable regional air mobility.”
