This new line for the aerospace sector opens up new opportunities for the company .
Fagor Arrasate will install a complete cut-to-length line for one of the biggest aluminium producers in China. The line is to be used for aerospace products. It is the second order of this type supplied by Fagor to the Chinese client.
Together with this line, there have now been ordered five aluminium lines from Fagor Arrasate for Chinese customers – a great success for the company and a step forward in its strategy to establish itself as a reference for cutting and processing equipment in the flourishing aluminium world.
The cut-to-length lines delivered by Fagor in China up until now have been destined for the automotive industry; however, this new line for the aerospace sector opens up new opportunities for the company in this important sector. With this order Fagor has been capable of transferring its expertise in the automotive business to the aerospace sector, not least through the introduction of some innovative features, such as a high energy efficiency vacuum stacker, a quick change shearing die and its own advanced automation systems. The cut-to-length line along with its novel solutions offers high productivity and highest product quality standards, stresses Fagor.
The growing number of reference plants in China shows that Fagor Arrasate has taken an important and right step with its expansion into the Chinese market. The equipment supplier has a manufacturing and assembly plant in Kunshan, near Shanghai, in addition to the offices in this city and Beijing.
