“ALUMINIUM 2014 trade show is the right place to showcase Constellium’s latest developments in a variety of applications.

For example, the Surfalex® family expands to match key customer specifications related to demanding skin quality.

  • ALPLAN and UNIDAL® precision plate products improve machining efficiency and allow cost savings from 15 to 40%, depending on final part thickness and complexity. In addition, they contribute to reduce machining cycle time up to 50%, from mother plate to finished part.
  • The breakthrough AIRWARE® technology suited to feature in all parts of the aircraft primary structure and offering a combination of unique benefits: up to 25% lighter, easier production of complex parts, and 100% recyclable without property loss.
