Key extrusion products and markets
Hard alloys are produced as billets and bars for forging stock. These serve applications such as landing gear and engine blades.
Small and intermediate sections are used to make aircraft fuselage frames and stiffeners, while heavy sections provide wing-stringers for airliners.
Our precision tubes carry hydraulic fluids, serve as control rods, and form the frames of passenger seats.
Our latest AIRWARE® 2196 extrusions are particularly suited to stiffening damage tolerant fuselage and lower wing panels. They are also used in buckling applications. They offer a high strength and excellent corrosion resistance.
Extruded products are used in the manufacture of truck bodies and railcars.
Many of these extrusions are also used in the defense industry, specifically for the construction of war planes or armored vehicles.
In the automotive industry, our tubes transfer fluid for air conditioners, heat exchangers and power steering.
Our extruded bars, ideal for forging or machining, can be used to make exacting automotive products, such as pistons for racing car engines. Wires are used as special fasteners for assembling engines and gearboxes, as well as for making safety belt balls and tire valves.
Constellium delivers a comprehensive variety of extruded products for aerospace, defense and transportation.
