Materials

Did you know that most modern aircraft consist of 50% aluminum?  

Aluminum offers corrosion resistance and a high strength-to-weight ratio. This makes it easier for aircraft to reach a flight speed of around 900km/h while keeping fuel consumption low.  

Our service offering 

As the largest materials distributor in the Western hemisphere, we guarantee the supply of this vital metal for our customers. Through expert advice, reliability, and a large stock of materials, we make sure our clients get their materials just-in-time wherever they need it.

Processing Services

Did you know that only around 15% of the materials acquired to manufacture an aircraft are actually used? 

The so-called buy-to-fly ratio indicates the ratio between material inputs and outputs. In the aerospace industry, the majority of the materials acquired to make an aircraft end up as scrap. This is the result of inefficient processes along the supply chain and poor forecasting.  

Our service offering 

At thyssenkrupp Aerospace, our objectives are always to maximize quality and minimize scrap in all our processing services. By using smart processes such as nesting, we aim to keep your costs low, the quality of our materials high, and environmental impacts as low as possible.

Machining

Did you know that most narrow-body aircraft have a life span of around 40 years?  

The aerospace industry works to the highest standards when it comes to processed materials. These materials operate under extreme conditions so the tolerances used in their manufacture are more precise than in almost any other industry.  

Our service offering 

Our customers save time and effort by putting the pre-machining of their materials into our expert hands. We work to highest engineering standards and use state-of-the-art machines. By focusing on their core business and leaving processing services to us, our customers stay competitive in their core business.

Supply Chain Management  

Did you know that parts from around 2,000 suppliers are used to produce a narrow-body aircraft? 

A large airplane consists of up to 6,000,000 parts from suppliers worldwide. The smaller parts are constructed individually before final assembly. Aligning all suppliers so that deliveries are made just-in-time and just-in-sequence is still one of the major challenges for large aircraft manufacturers.   

Our service offering 

Our customers benefit from our digital supply chain management services. Each client has different needs, so we create tailored supply chain control tower solutions to connect all the dots along their value chain. This results in reduced logistic costs, optimized inventory, and secure worldwide supply.
