We are a leading supplier to the aircraft industry of forged parts and exceptionally durable components in special steel grades, titanium alloys, and aluminum. Aircraft components must withstand extreme pressure differences, low temperatures, enormous starting and landing forces. We use state-of-the-art processes to manufacture these components in high-load-bearing metal alloys, to ensure their operational reliability. We forge and strengthen these valuable materials using extremely heavy tools.
Our products are used in three essential areas of the aircraft: the fuselage, the engine, and the landing gear—from the seat tracks used to anchor the passenger seats in the cabin to the mounts that connect the wing to the engine. The parts are highly stressed, usually safety-critical components that have to withstand high temperatures, mechanical loads, or rotation.
Our tailored product and system solutions support customers in the premium auto segment worldwide - from lightweight components for the body to solutions for the powertrain and safety components. With our unique materials concepts we are also equipped for future mobility concepts.
Electromobility is an important future market for voestalpine as a global steel and technology group and a long-term partner to the international automotive industry. By maintaining a consistent focus on research and development, we have succeeded in creating innovative product solutions such as ultra high-strength body parts or high-tech components for battery casings and electric motors which will make electric vehicles lighter, safer, and more efficient. We see huge potential for further strengthening our position as a technology partner in this demanding segment.
The Metal Engineering Division of the voestalpine Group bundles its expertise in the Railway Systems and Industrial Systems business segments in order to position itself more strongly as a provider of system solutions.
