Special steels for Aerospace applications

The combination of modern production facilities, a wide product range and the host of mill and product approvals has resulted in Deutsche Edelstahlwerke and Ugitech becoming prominent supplier of Aerospace materials.

As producers of Aerospace materials with more than 50 years of experience, we strive to continuously improve our product range to better meet the increasing demands of this innovative and rapidly growing industry.

Materials for precision landing.

Deutsche Edelstahlwerke and Ugitech have an overlap in production capabilities and facilities and this, combined with our own mill stock facilities, ensures a high degree of security for supply chain management.

Together we can deliver most of the common Aerospace materials to meet your requirements.

Additive manufacturing: - possible applications in aerospace industry

Additive manufacturing uses a 3D printer to produce a component layer by layer. Gas atomized metal powders form the basis for this. Deutsche Edelstahlwerke has been producing metal powder for build-up welding and thermal spraying for many years and is now using its expertise in this area for 3D printing. Within its Printdur portfolio DEW offers a wide range of gas atomized metal powders. In addition, Ugitech offers drawn wire - UGIWAM - for additive manufacturing.

The benchmark materials for Aerospace applications

The demanding quality requirements of the Aerospace industry, to ensure optimal product quality and reproducibility, mandate that the supplying companies are extensively supervised. AS 9100, AS 9120 and NADCAP are prominent examples for certificates that Aerospace related customers require. Together Ugitech and Deutsche Edelstahlwerke are accredited by:

  • ISO 9001 (quality management system)
  • ISO 14001 (environmental management system)
  • ISO 50001 (energy management system)
  • AS 9100 (aerospace producer)
  • AS 9120 (aerospace stockholder)
  • NADCAP (heat treatment)
  • ISO 17025 (testing laboratories)

In many cases individual customer approvals are additionally necessary for deliveries into the aircraft industry. Deutsche Edelstahlwerke and Ugitech have achieved a wide range of OEM and sub-contractor approvals.
