    The Graz University of Technology, voestalpine, and other industry partners establish Austria’s first endowed chair for aerospace research

    With an average annual growth of over three percent globally, the aerospace sector is taking off. In order to take advantage of this potential, an endowed chair has been established at the Graz University of Technology in cooperation with industry partners voestalpine, Fuchshofer Präzisionstechnik, TCM International, and Diamond Aircraft Industries. Since March this year, this position has been officially held by Brazilian-born materials scientist Sergio Amancio. The aim of this cooperation between science and business is to establish an international competence center for the development of pioneering materials and production technologies in the aerospace sector. voestalpine is the largest industrial partner and, with its high-performance materials and special forgings used in extremely high-load-bearing structural, engine, and undercarriage parts, is one of the world’s major suppliers to the aviation industry.

    voestalpine picks up the pace with innovations in electromobility

    The technology and capital goods group voestalpine is increasingly securing a key position in the dynamic and growing global electromobility industry. In addition to ultra high-strength yet ever lighter steel as a material for car bodies and battery housings, voestalpine is also revolutionizing the electromobility market with its innovative product solutions for electric motors. The most recent breakthrough has been achieved with the "compacore" process, in which state-of-the-art technologies are used to bond highest quality electrical steel into lamination stacks—the core element in every electric motor—to provide a sustained increase in motor efficiency. Demand amongst premium automotive customers is high: voestalpine has recently invested in a new serial production facility in Nagold, Germany, which is already scheduled to operate at full capacity through to 2021 to complete four orders worth a total of EUR 30 million.
