There are millions of parts in an aeroplane.
Ours are critical and indispensable

As part of our business strategy, we expect to see constant growth in production in the Aerospace and Defense Business Area, in which we have established ourselves in recent years.

We have transferred the technology and skills developed thanks to our experience in the Food industry and we use them to make critical functional and structural components for civil and military aircraft with high-performance materials.

COMPONENTS

We use steel, special alloys and aluminium to make critical components for civil and military aircraft:

  • Steel, special alloy and aluminium pipes
  • Pipes for hydraulic circuits (flight controls)
  • Aerostructure parts
  • Engine parts

These are critical components because they are functional and structural, so they must ensure that the aircraft in which they are installed is operating in complete safety.


BUSINESS AREA OVERVIEW

Activities:

  • Production of critical components made of steel, special alloys and aluminium

Components

  • Piping made of steel, special alloys and aluminium
  • Piping for hydraulic circuits (flight commands)
  • Aerostructure parts
  • Engine parts

Intended use of components

  • Civil and military aircraft, both manned and unmanned

Clients

  • International industry players

Distinctive features

  • Highly critical functional and structural components

TECHNOLOGIES

We use manual, automatic and robot TIG welding and automatic laser welding technologies, and process piping and sheet metal with CNC machines.
We use high-vacuum brazing and heat and surface treatments (pickling, passivation, electropolishing and thermal spraying) to improve the performance of components.

QUALITY

Aware of the highly critical nature of our special processes, we certify the conformity of components produced by the quality checks carried out in-house. At our production sites, specialised and qualified technicians carry out non-destructive X-ray and dye penetrant tests, in addition to conventional dimensional checks through coordinate measuring machines and optical vision systems and to visual checks with video endoscope.

MANAGEMENT

The production and management chain is structured in accordance with the latest methods, including Total Quality Management and World Class Manufacturing. The aim is to constantly improve our activities by ensuring that the company’s objectives are shared across all levels. There is a special focus on optimizing costs and delivery.

Certification

We have NADCAP accreditation for welding, heat treating and non destructive testing. As part of the process of adapting quality to meet the standards in the field, we have AS/EN 9100 certification for Quality Management in the Aerospace Industry.

In addition, we have Quality Management (ISO 9001), Health and Safety (OHSAS 18001) and Environmental Management (ISO 14001) certification. Finally, the biggest Italian and international prime contractors have approved our company production processes.

Plant

We invest resources and technologies in the aerospace market. All the production activities of the business unit have been recently moved to a new 4,000-sqm plant in Schio, near Vicenza, where 30 highly qualified workers are dedicated to preparation, adjustment, pickling, welding and riveting processes.

POEMA

In 2014 the company joined the network of companies belonging to POEMA, the European Aerospace Microfusions Complex. The objective of Poema is to improve quality, performance and efficiency of plane engine and of turbine components, reducing its consumptions. EMA, society depending from Rolls Royce, is one of the primary worldwide producers of microcast components for aerospace and industrial gas turbines. We contribute to the project at the plant in Morra De Sanctis (Avellino) performing laser welding of the turbines, non-destructive inspection and repair by manual welding.
