BÖHLER Schmiedetechnik GmbH & Co KG produces more than just engine mounts – the special forged parts from Kapfenberg are used in a wide range of areas of an aircraft.

Almost every aircraft contains engine mounts from BÖHLER Schmiedetechnik GmbH & Co KG. And the other special forged parts from Kapfenberg are also in demand worldwide:

  • Engine discs
  • Connection of horizontal and vertical stabilizers with the fuselage
  • Undercarriage components
  • Structural parts for the aircraft fuselage such as the primary mounting elements in the wing box
  • Components for wings and pylons

Well-known customers

The customers – aircraft manufacturers and suppliers of major assemblies and systems (Tier 1 suppliers) – originate from Europe, America and Asia. The customer list includes well-known firms like Boeing, Airbus, Embraer, Bombardier, Gulfstream, Dassault, ATR, MHI and Comac.

Forged parts from Kapfenberg can be found in many parts of an aircraft. An Airbus A380 consists of approx. 4 million parts – only about 1,000 of which are forged parts, and thus they make up a relatively small proportion of the whole.

The latest video from the voestalpine image and brand campaign focuses on engine mounts we produce for aircraft in Kapfenberg, Austria, and shows them being installed in the Airbus A380 of Emirates Airline. An ongoing blog series offers further insight and background information about the product, the areas of application and the market as well as about Hans Freudenthaler from Böhler Schmiedetechnik GmbH & Co KG, the star of the campaign.
