Austrian Competences in Aeronautics Technology


CERATIZIT - passion and pioneering spirit for hard materials For over 95 years, we have been developing and producing sophisticated hard material cutting and wear protection solutions: From highly specialized cutting tools, indexable inserts and carbide rods to new types of carbide and cermet grades for wood and stone working

Technologies and competences

Our expertise is in the complete machining of fuselage and wing structural components such as frames and ribs, engine mounts and flap track fairings made from high-strength materials. Especially heat-resistant materials such as titanium or super alloys are employed here in the latest aeroplane generation. These materials are usually considered difficult to machine due to their low thermal conductivity, high strength, high hardness as well as chemical reactivity.
