For the aviation industry, CIREX produces various high-value cast pieces. This industry is characterised by extremely stringent requirements with respect to product quality, process stability and certification.
Products in the aviation industry are often heavily stressed. During take off, landing and flying, they are subject to substantial, often varying loads, and large temperature differences. Product design and process choice play an important role in safeguarding the safety of travelers and goods. During the development of aviation components, we always perform a casting and solidification simulation. This facilitates the development of a high-quality product that can also be produced robustly. And because we work closely with your technicians, you can be certain of a high-value cast piece without technical imperfections.
17-4PH (1.4549) is an alloy that is often used in aviation. This material is characterized by high tensile strength and elasticity combined with great hardness (wear resistance) and corrosion resistance. The most distinguishing property is the possibility to construct using thin wall thicknesses. This keeps the product’s weight low without making concessions to the strength of the design. With our years of experience in the aviation industry, we will be happy to assist you in developing and producing your cast pieces.
In addition, CIREX is also specialized in casting Aluminium. Aluminium is often used in aviation technology because of its lightweight and also its corrosion resistance. Casting aluminium is a complex process in which various factors require extra attention. Whereas our engineers know exactly how to design products for this process, our casters are capable of casting products of different sizes where high-quality workmanship is key. Furthermore, CIREX is able to manufacture aluminium castings of both normal wax models and prototyping models to ensure an efficient start-up process.
