Lightweight seat structure and systems
Components for cabin interiors, such as light bars, overhead stowage compartments, PSU rails, galleys, edge protectors, cable ducts, brackets
Our Value Chain
With long-standing experience in profile bending processes, we can shape your component based on your specifications.
Our core business includes state-of-the-art welding processes like MIG CMT and cutting-edge laser hybrid welding technology.
Other joining processes such as self-piercing riveting are also possible
We handle everything cohesively from the final process steps all the way up to the finished complex product with corresponding validation processes. We work closely with our customers to determine the most comprehensive scope of testing based on the highest quality requirements.
We can rely on years of experience with renowned OEMs and first tier suppliers, from individual production to series implementation. We support our clients in the production-oriented design of their components.
We advise our customers on the selection of suitable alloys and develop customised alloys. Defined homogenisation processes ensure the desired properties, which can also be tested using ultrasound methods.
We offer all common soft alloy types in the aerospace sector.
Our locations feature state-of-the-art 3 to 5 axis machining centres that meet the high tolerance requirements of our customers. For optically perfect visible surfaces, the components are ground on grinding robots.
We offer solutions for customer-specific surface requirements from washing to coating technologies with long-term customer-approved partners.
