Application

These components are used in a system for automatic loading of cargo aircraft.

Advantages

  • Thin-walled casting
  • Maximum strength with minimum weight
  • Fewer costs by cutting out part of the processing
  • Small added process yields a short cycle of mechanical post-processing

Advantage of the CIREX casting process

Huge cost-savings are achieved by designing the product as ‘Near Net Shape’. This allows you to avoid unnecessary processing steps. The components are cast in 17-4 PH  (Duplex) material. This steel alloy is particularly suited to casting thin-walled products. Low weight combined with high strength and good corrosion-resistance. CIREX delivers this casting including heat treatment (solution heat-treated).
