Constellium pushes the boundaries of innovation with three new AIRWARE products for aerostructures

Leveraging aluminium's untapped potential, AIRWARETM is a breakthrough technology designed to help the aerospace industry solve all the challenges ahead, from reducing weight or maintenance effort, to lower environmental footprints with closed recycling loops. Constellium today announced three new AIRWARETM products that will continue to improve aircraft performance.

AIRWARETM I-GAUGE is the thickest low-density alloy plate; and its unique and enhanced properties offer a more cost-effective solution to the aerospace value chain. AIRWARETM I-GAUGE offers OEMs better performance whilst minimizing weight and simplifying manufacturing and/or assembly of complex monolithic shapes. It is particularly suited for wing ribs and nose landing gears, and has already been selected by Airbus for its A350 XWB aircraft.

AIRWARETM I-FORM is a highly formable product, and coming in sheet form it allows for the design of complex 3D curvature shapes with no loss of mechanical properties and a reduction in manufacturing steps. AIRWARETM I-FORM is best suited for fuselage nose and tail. It has been selected by Bombardier for its CSeries.

AIRWARETM I-CORE is a high strength extruded product which comes in a low density alloy and is best fitted for a hybrid structure environment. Its ability to absorb energy reduces the risks of structural damages makes it an ideal choice for cargo floor beams.

"With AIRWARETM Constellium demonstrates its commitment to bring aluminium solutions in aerospace to the next level. These three new products will help achieve new performance goals. By combining new high performance materials with cost effective fabrication processes or looking into eco-efficient design in hybrid aerostructures, AIRWARETM is a fully industrial cutting edge technology," said Christophe Villemin, President of Constellium's Global Aerospace Division.
