Machine shop of VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation will be milled titanium parts for Airbus

The management of the Corporation «VSMPO-AVISMA» has agreed with

representatives of the «Airbus» about the deeper machining parts from

titanium for aircraft manufactured by the international aircraft manufacturer.

We are talking about pre-milling cast on the capacity of the Russian

Corporation blanks for chassis of aircraft «A-380» — the largest in

the history of the serial aircraft wide-body jet liners

passenger traffic.

Early forging of a titanium alloy (immediately after

casting and minor posilicano Stripping on the capacity of verkhnesaldinskiy

plant) were transported in the American city of Tullahoma (Tennessee), where experts

company «Aerospace Systems» performed the bulk of the metal. New

the agreement between the parties, roughing titanium billet wheels will

be carried out by workers «VSMPO». And abroad details will be sent

with only a slight allowance to the finished size of the chassis.

New terms of cooperation will bring to the customer and

the by a number of significant benefits. First and foremost, we are talking about weight reduction and physical

volume sent abroad. According to representatives of the Russian

Titan company, each casting wheel after the roughing losing weight (in

depending on the configuration of the product) from 700 to 1,600 kilograms of titanium. Implementation

pre-treatment «at the place» will allow the parties to optimize logistics

costs and reduce losses of titanium (due to the possibility of melting preservando with

the details of the mass). In addition, the production chassis will be for «VSMPO» more

best, as the customer will pay the amount of laborious work

higher value added.

«VSMPO-AVISMA» — the largest manufacturer of titanium

the alloys and products of the «winged» metal in the global market. Partners

corporations are more than 300 companies from 48 countries, among which are

industry giants such as Boeing, Rolls Royce, «SNECMA», the aforementioned «Airbus» and

many other organizations on a global scale. Recently Russian technologies, which owns

the company announced its intention to sell part of the shares to private investors.

Now the question of the alienation of an asset is under negotiation with

state authorities control the proper implementation of antitrust

the laws of Russia.
