Machining for aerospace

At the Emmen site, metallic parts, such as control surface structures, payload suspensions or turbine housings for civil and military aircraft, are made from entire blocks or plates. The strength of the production in Emmen is the machining of all common aerospace materials from aluminum and titanium to high-quality alloys for larger dimensions. In the future, these processes will also be offered for other branches of industry, such as classic mechanical and plant engineering or vehicle construction.
