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.
The goal of this step at the end of the process is to protect and strengthen the parts with different protective coatings. Figeac Aero Group offers a number of different aerospace and military coating solutions depending on customer needs as well as parts marking with varnish. The company can also carry out ink jet and silk-screen marking.
The Group has treatment capacity for small, medium and large parts with equipment handling parts up to 15 metres long.
