Alloy Wire International is looking to build on its growing presence in the aerospace sector by taking part in the Midlands Aerospace Alliance’s Pavilion at the Farnborough International Airshow (July 11-17).
Alloy Wire International (AWI) will be showcasing its extensive range of more than 50 nickel ‘High Performance’ alloys that are commonly used in aircraft fire detection; engine retaining rings; fasteners; high-temperature seals, and engine compression springs.
Approved by BAE Systems, Raytheon Jets and Westland Corp, the company produces 0.025mm to 21mm custom-made wire in Exotic alloys, including Nimonic 90; Inconel 600; Nimonic 75; Waspaloy; Titanium Grade 5, and Monel 400.
The company’s Tom Mander commented: “The aerospace sector demands the highest quality material and fast turnaround on orders, two attributes we have built our business on.
“Our manufacturing policy is AS9100 ‘Aerospace & Defence’ accredited and, with our no minimum quantity policy, it saves the customer money and helps them meet fluctuations in volumes.”
Mander continued: “The Farnborough Airshow is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our capability and exciting new alloys that offer high corrosion resistance and high temperature properties…ideal for critical aerospace parts.”
