Air Traffic Control Panel Solutions
Richlind Metal Fabricators was responsible for rebuilding air traffic control work stations across the United States in air traffic TRACONS. This project included modernizing of the air traffic control center by converting the previous green screen tube monitors into flat panel displays on articulating arms. Given the critical safety component of doing such a massive project with active air traffic control centers and partnering with the FAA, over time, various sectors of air traffic control were shut down at night to make the transition.
Richlind Metal Fabricators sent the conversion kits with the needed metal elements to do the sensitive upgrades at the precise time and place. This massive project shows that Richlind Metal Fabricators has proven endurance in the aviation industry, even in the most stringent and critical arena. We delivered all the part kits on-time, every time, with no exceptions.
