DEW DEW and Ugitech at Paris Air Show
High-quality aerospace components are the focus of DEW's presentation. Ugitech will present their raw materials, matching the high demands of the industry.
There is particular focus on Additive Manufacturing this year at Deutsche Edelstahlwerke (DEW) and Ugitech. A method that is also applied when it comes to producing components for the aerospace industry. Together the sister companies of the Schmolz + Bickenbach Group they will therefore be represented at the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget airport from 16th to 23rd June (Hall 4, Stand C4). The show, which is among the most important aerospace trade fairs in the world, is not only a home match for the French business unit, Ugitech, but also the ideal place to present its range of products and services that meet the requirements of the aerospace industry.
To ensure that modern flying machines can safely take off and stay in the air, their components must be extremely light and become even lighter in the future whilst attaining higher strengths. The prerequisite is special steel in first class quality. In this respect, Ugitech and DEW notably stand for quality and for quick availability of their products due to efficient supply chains worldwide. The fact that special steel development is constantly advancing in this area is demonstrated by the wide field of additive manufacturing among other things. At DEW, this topic is currently omnipresent. A requirement for additive manufacturing is a high quality feedstock powder, which DEW provides as part of its Printdur portfolio with a wide range of atomised metal powders based on iron, nickel or cobalt. For another promising technology: Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing, Ugitech offers a wide range of Ugiwam® wires well suited for parts of big dimensions. The benefits include high flexibility in component design as well as a large product variety. Besides sectors like medical technology and toolmaking, the method plays an important role especially in the aerospace industry.
Ugitech steel stands for purity, homogeneity and reliability
Besides the current developments by DEW, the focus of the trade show appearance is on the “home match” for the experts from Ugitech. The group’s French business unit will be jointly presenting its concentrated special competence regarding the supply of raw materials for the production of safety-relevant parts at Paris Air Show, including brake components and fuel pumps. The high industry standards in the aerospace sector are met, for example, by the stainless steel grades UGI® 4307 AIR and UGI® 4541 AIR produced by Ugitech, which are used in engine components on booster rockets for space travel. Critical quality features here are a high strength and toughness. The steel experts’ customers, besides distributors, parts manufacturers, component and system suppliers, also include aircraft manufacturers. In addition, the product portfolio covers steering rods and components for the chassis of various aircraft.
