Surface treatment: an essential step in the production of mechanical parts
On the strength of its expertise in machining , Figeac Aero has also branched out into the field of "surface treatment" for the finishing of metal parts. In order to deliver our customers finished products that have gone through a controlled industrial process, Figeac Aero has opted for internalised management of these processes.
The Group boasts a long-standing centre of expertise at its French subsidiary "Mecabrive Industries" in Brive-la-Gaillarde. In France, this activity is also up and running on the Figeac Aero sites in Auxerre, SN Auvergne Aeronautique in Aulnat and Tofer in Escalquens. Overseas, the subsidiaries Figeac Aero North America located in Wichita, US, Figeac Aero Mexico and Casablanca Aeronautique in Morocco all have specially designed facilities.
A wide range of services
The goal is to further improve the surface of parts after machining to ensure that they provide optimal protection against corrosion and wear and tear throughout their life cycle. The treatments undergo stringent quality control and each process is certified by the customer.
Non-destructive testing (NDT)
The goal is to inspect the state of the material to ensure its conformity. The process reveals signs of metal fatigue.
