As tough as it gets for Surface requirements
Highly efficient, ultrareliable engineering is just one of the challenges the aerospace industry rises to on a regular basis, which is why manufacturers expect their components and production processes to meet such stringent requirements. By 2050, Europe’s ACARE alliance aims to cut carbon dioxide by 75%, nitrogen oxide by 90% and noise by 65%.A key factor in meeting those targets is to reduce engine friction, which in turn requires smooth functional surfaces.Efficient design often implies very narrow tolerances and less scope for process variation, making stable, repeatable, fully automated production processes all the more important.Leading OEM, TIER 1 and TIER 2 manufacturers in the aerospace supply chain rely on our innovative finishing solutions, which far outperform the conventional processes they used in the past.OTEC’s mass finishing machines are designed for applications ranging from smoothing for minimal roughness (superfinishing or ultrapolishing) to rounding and/or deburring. On request we also develop other, highly customised applications.
Perfection and quality are the measure of all things not only for Elma, but also in the aerospace industry. In order to meet these high standards, we provide quality not only for the development and manufacturing of equipment and systems, but also and particularly for service and customer care.
Different validatable equipment and systems are available for every cleaning stage for the cleaning of components in the aerospace industry. Whether it is for reconditioning cleaning, NDT/FEP tests, pre-, intermediate or final cleaning, Elma provides tailored cleaning solutions.
Turbine engines are higly specialized aircraft components that must meet enormous safety requirements. One way to meet these new metrological requirements is the use of high-resolution, optical 3D metrology.
