In 1996 Dornier Technologie was founded in Uhldingen-Mühlhofen by Iren Dornier, a grandchild of the aviation pioneer Claude Dornier. The closeness to Friedrichshafen and Lake Constance links Dornier Technologie with the origins of the Dornier aviation at the turn of the century and the nowadays still large network of aviation industry companies.
Since its foundation in 1996, Dornier Technologie has developed into an expert for electronic and pneumatic components and systems for aircraft cabins. Our success is based on a clear understanding of the whole system requirements and a strong interaction of interdisciplinary teams (electrical- and mechanical engineering, pneumatic engineering and software development). We cover the entire value chain, from engineering and development, prototype manufacture, qualification and serial production. It goes without saying that we are DIN ISO 9001 certified and have the EASA Part-21G and Part-145 approval.
One of the main applications of the Dornier “technology” is the electrification of aircraft seats. The current product portfolio ranges from Seat Actuation, Power Supplies, Control Panels (Passenger Control Units) and Pneumatic Systems. These products and systems are also used on seats in trains and high-speed trains.
