Castings Technology prides itself on supporting UK Primes with components for programmes that are vital to our national security. We have experience in structural components for land and air-based systems including artillery, ballistic protection, marine / submarine and military aircraft.
The use of titanium for light-weighting (improving both operational agility and fuel efficiency) and corrosion-proofing is expanding into areas which have traditionally been the preserve of airborne platforms only. Corrosion alone costs the worlds’ military powers hundreds of billions of pounds per annum in equipment damage, component replacement and lack of operational availability which can easily be overcome by the use of more advanced materials.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
Castings Technology has been involved in the pre-production and series manufacture for a number of highly sensitive UAV programmes. The components included undercarriage and airframe structural components as well as exhaust outlet control parts.
