Leading aerospace supplier opts for automation
In the 21st century one of the most popularly used materials is aluminium, offering versatile application opportunities for a number of industries ranging from the automotive to the construction industry. The Universal Alloy Corporation (UAC), located in Dumbravita, Romania excels in producing hard alloy aluminium parts specialized for the aerospace industry and looks forward to implementing more automation.
The subsidiary in Romania of the American company was established in 2010 as the first hard alloy aerospace extrusion production site to be located in an Eastern European EU country. UAC is a Tier 1 supplier of the aerospace industry, delivering products used mostly in the fuselage and wing sections of aircrafts, such as seat tracks, wing stringers, wing ribs, crossbeams, cleats, hinges and many more. Passengers on the Airbus or Boeing aircrafts will definitely encounter the company’s products, but they can also be found on helicopters, jet fighters and smaller planes, such as the Fokker or Pilatus aircrafts.
