The aircraft industry permanently improves to lower kerosene consumption on always longer routes. This requires a lighter structure material for the aeroplanes.
The favorable ratio of strength to mass, the corrosion resistance and the plasticity argue for the use of fibre composite materials for the aircraft construction (CFK carbon fibre as well as GFK glass fibre material). CFK is 60% lighter at comparable steel strength levels.
The company operates in this fast growing market for high tech materials. The focus lies on the development and production of tools for the aircraft cabin specialized on airduct and covering elements.
