Global player in aerostructures
Premium AEROTEC is one of the world's leading suppliers (tier 1 supplier) of commercial and military aircraft structures and is a key partner in the major European and international aerospace programmes. Its core competencies include the development and production of large and complex shaped aircraft components from aluminium, titanium and CFRP. Premium AEROTEC is Europe's no.1 in this segment with its roughly 10,000 employees in Germany and Romania and a turnover of €2 billion. Its customer base includes Airbus and Airbus Defence & Space. Premium AEROTEC’s headquarters is based in Augsburg.
Premium AEROTEC has achieved another important milestone in additive manufacturing (3D printing)
After a successful industrial process audit carried out by Airbus on 11 April and signing of the qualification report on 25 April 2019, Premium AEROTEC was the first aviation supplier to achieve a complete process qualification for additively manufactured titanium parts in multi-laser systems. Additive manufacturing of metal therefore becomes far more economical and can be used in a far wider scope in the aviation sector.
Project “NextGenAM” in Varel successfully completed
Premium AEROTEC, EOS and Daimler have successfully completed their joint project “NextGenAM”. The aim of the pilot project was to develop a digitalised next-generation manufacturing line which would be able to produce aluminium components for the automotive and aerospace sectors significantly more cost-effectively than is currently possible. The successful outcome of NextGenAM: in terms of the overall production process at Premium AEROTEC, manufacturing costs could be reduced by up to 50 percent compared with existing 3D printing systems. Parts for Daimler are already being produced on the new technology line at Premium AEROTEC: the truck unit, for example, is already using the first replacement part manufactured at Premium AEROTEC – a bracket for a truck diesel engine.
