Strong metals for aviation and defense.
Tungsten, molybdenum, tantalum and niobium are essential materials for the aviation and defense industries due to their properties: the high-temperature stability, density and tensile strength, their excellent material machinability, and radiation protection.
Our production is subject to a quality surveillance and control system certified to ISO 9001 and AS/EN 9100. Every stage of the production process is performed in-house: from the raw material through to the finished product. For example at our production site Plansee Tungsten Alloys in France, which is specialized in the production of high performance tungsten heavy alloys.
As a reliable business-partner, Plansee delivers products which maintain their consistent high quality for many decades. Our balancing weights for example are qualified according to the Flight Safety Parts Standard (FPS), which guarantees full traceability and a hundred percent secured supply chain.
