Advanced welding

Advanced aluminium welding

Constellium’s welded aerospace structures provide new opportunities for cost reduction and efficient material usage.

Mastery of technology

Friction Stir Welding, Constellium's advanced welding solution

Constellium has exceptional technology expertise in all aspects of the materials solutions we develop, manufacture and supply.

Supported by our staff of research and development scientists, we are recognized as a valuable partner in the development of advanced welding solutions with customers.

Using welding processes and capabilities, we can help customers optimize material usage and reduce costs. On welded aerospace structures, for example, the use of new joining techniques such as laser beam or friction stir welding makes it possible to join parts, thus creating larger pieces without losing any of the material properties.

Big benefits from advanced welding

Advanced welding can help significantly reduce the weight of aerostructures.

As an example, our AIRWARE® technology delivers up  to 25% weight reduction when combined to advanced welding techniques and redesign of aerostructure.


Combining Constellium’s AIRWARE® technology with advanced welding techniques enables up to 25% weight reduction.
