Plansee Tungsten Alloys recognised with UTC Gold Supplier Award


Plansee Tungsten Alloys, a La Roche-sur-Foron, France, has been awarded UTC Aerospace System Division (UTAS)’s Gold Supplier Award for its supply of tungsten heavy metal balance weights to the company. According to UTAS, the award was given in recognition of the high quality of Plansee Tungsten Alloys’ components for the aerospace industry and the company’s quality process and continuous improvements.

The USA-based UTC Aerospace Systems specialises in the manufacture of a range of components for aircraft operation, such as generators for electricity production and digital control modules for modern engines. As a system supplier, the company also provides multi-system integration for comprehensive networking in aircraft.

Plansee Tungsten Alloys manufactures tungsten heavy metal components which are exceptionally dense and corrosion-resistant and thus extremely suitable for forming and machining processes. They are used as balance weights in the aviation industry, as components in the aerospace industry and as radiation shielding in the nuclear and medical sectors, among other applications.

According to UTAS, seventy-five out of its 3,000 global suppliers hold Gold Supplier Status. This award was presented to Dr Wolfgang Köck, Executive Vice President of Plansee, and his team on  November 16, 2017.
