Aeronautics

We manufacture aeronautical components machined from profiled or round bars in steel, aluminum and copper alloys.

Our technical department determines the optimal manufacturing process by developing clamping and machining systems to ensure product quality (calculating deformations during machining, anticipating distortions after heat treatment, etc.).

Our technical resources and our patents for high-precision surface finishing of aluminum enable the production of machined components on:
  • 10 5-axis CNC lathes
  • 7 4-axis CNC machining centers
  • 30 rotary transfer machines

Aluminium

We produce precision-machined components from extruded aluminum profiles. This material offers weight savings (increased energy efficiency), mechanical strength (T4 or T6 heat treatment), durability, and recyclability.

Aluminum can be made from a 75% recycled composition to reduce its carbon footprint.

  • Aluminum alloys : EN AW 5083, 6061, 6082, 7075
  • Heat treatment: quenching – tempering for T4 or T6 state, stabilization.
  • Surface treatment: anodizing, metallizing to improve the reflection coefficient.

Our aeronautical components from aluminum profiles can be found in :

Cabin interior

Aluminum profiles are used in the cabin interior for the manufacture of seat frames, supports for panels, and other lightweight components.

Auxiliary equipment

Supports for electronic equipment and other accessories can also be machined from aluminum profiles

High performance metals

Our precision-machined components, made from steel, stainless steel, titane, and nickel alloys, are primarily used for fastening, interior equipment, and linking applications

  • Other special metals: titanium, WASPALOY
  • Stainless steel grades: 304, 316L
Component for interior equipment out of titanium profile

Examples of applications :

Structural connections

Steel profiles can be used in structural connections where superior strength is critical.

Mechanisms and actuators

Machined components made from steel profiles can be used for mechanisms and actuators where robustness and durability are essential.

Fastening elements

Steel profiles can be used for the manufacture of fastening and support elements in certain areas where the additional weight is not so critical.

Linking elements

Critical fasteners and linking elements can be made from titanium to ensure structural strength in specific areas.

Interior equipment

Titanium profiles can be used for interior components such as seat structures and other elements where high strength and lightness are required.

Copper

We produce precision components from copper alloys profiles, promoting electrical conductivity. These components are particularly used for low and high voltage connectors.

  • Types of copper alloys : Cu, C11000 H04, TeCu, C14500
  • Surface treatment to improve conductivity such as silver plating

Applications of copper alloy profiles in the aerospace industry:

Cooling Systems

Due to its high thermal conductivity, copper can be used in cooling applications, such as heat sinks.

Electronic Components

High and low voltage connectivity components out of copper profile with silver plating

High and low voltage connectivity components out of copper profile with silver plating

We combine additional operations with machining to improve the quality of our products.

Triboloby operations for deburring and polishing

We perform in-house finishing by shot peening or mass finishing for deburring, polishing, and improving surface criteria (roughness and bearing capacity).

Multi-tank, ultrasonic, detergent washing machine

The cleanliness requirements of our products are guaranteed by a multi-tank, ultrasonic, detergent washing line and a robotized, modified alcohol washing line.

Robotized, modified alcohol washing line

The cleanliness requirements of our products are guaranteed by a robotized, modified alcohol washing line.

Robotic cell for traceability through laser marking

Unit traceability is carried out using automatic laser marking machines such as QR CODE or DATAMATRIX.

Geometric compliance is ensured by three-dimensional measuring machines (CMMs) and 6 automatic inspection machines with camera, eddy current, and scanning capabilities to detect various types of damages (surface defects, tearing, cracking).

Quality control

To meet the quality requirements of our customers, we have a metrology laboratory for dimensional measurements equipped with 3 continuous contact CMMs, optical fiber reflectance measurement, and optical surface defect inspection. To ensure 100% compliance of our products, we have a fleet of 7 automatic inspection machines equipped with eddy current, vision for dimensional inspection, and scanning for surface quality. We are certified ISO 9001, TS16949 and IATF.
