Strong, stable, and offering great potential for future growth, the aerospace market is driven by a steady increase in air traffic as well as an increasing demand for more fuel-efficient aircraft.
Aluminium is key to tomorrow’s lighter, faster economy, and Constellium is a global leader in aluminium aerospace technology.
We offer innovative, high performance products that bring cost benefits to aerospace companies of all kinds—whether they build commercial aircraft, military aircraft, or work on space programs.
Our aluminium products are available in four main forms:
- Plates, which can be machined to make particular shapes, such as bulkheads
- Sheets used for fuselage and wing skins
- Extrusions for structural components such as stringers
- Precision castings, which provide a large variety of customized components such as door frames or engine gearboxes
In this exciting, fast-paced industry, our solutions and value-added manufacturing services, including pre-machining services constantly test the limits of what can be achieved.
