The space industry is increasingly challenging, with performance and quality assurance of equal importance. The main expectations are flying longer, lighter and cheaper.
UNIQUE EQUIPMENT AND TECHNOLOGIES
Our renowned, 65 KT closed-die forging press is one of the two largest presses in the world. It allows us to press parts as large as 8 m (26 ft).
Another unique feature is our ‘Flash’ Quenching Equipment for high resistance Ti hemispheres. It minimizes the transfer time between heating and quenching down to 6 seconds. Depending on customers’ requirements, we can obtain either rupture resistance over 1100 MPa (160 Ksi) or an ideal compromise between fracture toughness and tensile characteristics.
