Aerospace systems and components

Let's shape the future of the aerospace industry together!

Ever growing demands in the aerospace industry for safer, lighter and stronger materials are also opening up exciting new possibilities – for reduced fuel consumption, flawless operation under higher pressures and reduced costs through smarter designs. For more than 50 years, we’ve supported leading engineering companies to develop next-generation civilian and defense aviation, spaceships and satellites. Our philosophy is simple: together, nothing is impossible!

If it doesn’t exist, let’s invent it

It’s an innovative attitude rooted in a 154-year steelmaking tradition where metallurgical firsts – backed by today’s team of 2,700 R&D experts – has driven the development of premium stainless steel and titanium tubing products, structural components, composites and machining solutions. Our broad range of aerospace tubular products is used by leading OEMs for fuel lines, hydraulic lines, instrumentation systems, pressure gauging and more – in OD 3 to 50.80 mm for stainless (0.118 to 1.968 inches) and OD 6 to 50 mm for titanium (0.236 to 2 inches).

Aerospace tubing

Close to you – in the aerospace hubs

To secure the swift delivery of top-end products, we operate three highly specialized tube mills in key aerospace hubs in Europe and the US: Sandvik Werther, Germany (P&P) Sandvik Charost, France (Precitube) and Sandvik Kennewick, Washington, USA (Sandvik Special Metals). Our tube mill in France has been actively serving demanding aerospace customers since 1972. In North America, our US mill is a well-known, NADCAP-certified provider of advanced titanium tubing. Key aerospace certifications have either been received or are under way at all mills.

Our products are used here:

Fully integrated production of aircraft tubing

From melt to finished tube. Aerospace customers tell us they appreciate Sandvik’s ability to guarantee controlled quality production, batch after batch, thanks to our fully integrated production process. Every tube can be traced back to the original melt from three highly specialized niche mills located near key aerospace hubs in the US and Europe.
