In support of Airbus' continuous improvement targets, Constellium is committed to increasing the buy-to-fly ratio by developing and implementing near-net shaped and pre-machined products.
Some aerospace components milled in titanium using traditional methods can have a buy-to-fly ratio of up to 40:1, says Williams.
Other wire-based processes can achieve a buy-to-fly ratio of 3:1.
It also significantly improves the buy-to-fly ratio as less material is wasted compared to conventional manufacturing methods.
In support of Airbus continuous improvement targets, Constellium is committed to increasing the buy-to-fly ratio by developing and implementing near-net shaped and pre-machined products.
This will dramatically improve the buy-to-fly ratio of the parts by reducing the considerable cost in time and material wastage associated with the conventional machining of metal forgings or billets.
This can be realised through improved design freedom and light-weighting via topology optimisation, Improved buy-to-fly ratios, And a reduction of tooling cost all of which have a demonstrable impact on the carbon footprint and waste in manufacture.
