Austrian Competences in Aeronautics Technology


The ÖGI is non-profit research organisation with the aim to improve production processes for and properties of metallic materials with a special focus on casting technologies and their use in light weight applications. This involves the use of high strength steels , Titanium and other lightweight alloys and metal composites of the above.

Technologies and competences

The ÖGI has its own pilot scale foundry for Mg, Al and other light weight alloys and can simulate and model production processes. Thermal physical and mechanical data can be obtained within EN ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratories over extended temperature ranges. Non destructive testing methods are used to assess product quality and quality improvement and to facilitate damage analysis.
