Aerospace, Defence and Security

Are Drivers of Advanced Material and Manufacturing Technologies

Besides aviation, defence and security there is hardly another market that plays such a decisive and pioneering role in the use of innovative materials and processes.

Wherever lives depend on the operational safety of end products, there is an indispensible requirement for absolutely reproducible processes with gapless traceability.

In this market segment, toolcraft has established itself as a reliable partner providing not only the capacity and broad range of manufacturing technologies required for highly diverse component packages, but also the necessary level of vertical manufacturing for comprehensive project solutions – and the commitment to invest in completely new technologies, such as metal laser melting. The entire process is certified according to Nadcap and TÜV Süd. The quality of the products can be quickly and reliably verified using a non-destructive surface testing. The area is in accordance with Nadcap requirements.

Challenges and Solutions

Many applications are large components, often featuring delicate geometry and correspondingly high material removal rates. Every single ounce that can be saved counts e.g. with regard to the kerosene consumption and reach of modern intercontinental aircraft. In addition, the industry is characterised by ambitious delivery times.

The Service Offering of toolcraft Extends Across the Entire Process Chain:

  • Feasibility studies with due consideration of the latest material developments (super alloys)
  • Prototyping within the shortest development times through to series production
  • Procurement of materials according to customer specifications
  • Production up to final acceptance, including advanced quality control, such as non-destructive testing with fluorescent penetrants (NDT process)

    Application Examples

    The broad range of applications spans from engine and structural components to measuring instruments and interior equipment, from landing gears to prototypes for aerodynamic new developments.
