Aubert & Duval comment on France’s aerospace industry rescue plans

June 26, 2020

Aubert & Duval, a subsidiary of the Eramet group, based in Paris, France, has stated its support for the announcement of an emergency plan made on June 9, 2020, by Bruno Le Maire, to ‘save’ the French aeronautics industry, thus preserving metallurgical skills and development.

The company explains that this announcement needs to be put into action, as the survival of thousands of jobs and skills is at stake. In the case of Aubert & Duval, this impacts nearly 4,000 jobs, mainly based in France.

Aubert & Duval states that the announced investment plan needs to benefit the entire industry, including the

industries furthest upstream such as itself, which possess metallurgical skills and industrial tools. 

In order to help create the aircraft of the future, Aubert & Duval reports that it is undertaking essential projects for the entire civil and military aeronautics industry; namely, the development of the metallic materials of the future, particularly superalloys and titanium.

These materials are crucial to the manufacture of new generation aircraft and engines that are lighter,

more efficient and less energy-intensive, states the company. These projects have reportedly already received the support of the French National Council for Industry (CNI) and are vital for the preservation of France’s national sovereignty.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
