Building the Next Generation of Air Travel
Despite global uncertainties, the demand for air travel in Asia Pacific countries continue to grow, creating countless opportunities in the region for aerospace manufacturers and MRO companies. To be able to accommodate this growth, the global airline industry is constantly looking for ways to be more cost and energy efficient. They seek to build aircrafts that are quiet, energy efficient and more environmentally friendly, all while upholding the highest safety standards.
Manufacturers need lighter materials, such as new alloys and composite and new technologies, to remain competitive. We draw on our more than 100 years of experience in the fabrication and heat treatment industries to develop specialized gases, equipment and technical services for a range of aviation applications.
Air Liquide provides high-quality gas solution for the manufacturing of engines, piping and fuel systems
The additive manufacturing process (3D printing) with metals makes it possible to design and build lightweight parts in real time. Air Liquide supplies premium gases for 3D printing of both metals and plastics.
Air Liquide is the leader in the field of aircraft fuel tank inerting via membrane based OBIGGS (On Board Inert Gas Generator System). OBIGGS systems prevent ignition of fuel tank vapors by providing inert gas generated on board the aircraft. The technology generates nitrogen enriched air to blanket the aircraft fuel tank and displace the flammable fuel/air mixture. Vulnerability to lightning, static discharge, or enemy fire for military aircraft, is greatly reduced by OBIGGS.
Air Liquide’s extensive technical knowledge of the heat treatment processes, coupled with our safe, reliable and customized gas solutions, will help you optimize your operations and manage costs.
Air Liquide can supply solutions for both protective or chemically active atmosphere for carburizing or nitriding.
For laser cutting, a laser beam is focused on the base metal, and a cutting jet ejects the molten metal. This process is used mainly on thin metals requiring high precision and high productivity. Our LASAL™ premium gases improves performance and reliability of specialized laser cutting jobs.
Tungsten inert gas welding (TIG welding), also known as GTAW-gas tungsten arc welding, is a process used when very high welding quality is required for sensitive materials such as stainless steels, aluminum or titanium alloys. An additional filler metal, often a wire rod, may be used either manually or in an automatic process through a separate wire feeder.
The additive manufacturing process (3D printing) with metals makes it possible to design and build parts in real time. It is also possible to build parts on demand everywhere and everytime you need it.
Air Liquide’s extensive technical knowledge of the heat treatment processes, coupled with our safe, reliable and customized gas solutions, will help you optimize your operations and manage costs. Our specialists dedicated to these processes can help you with your application.
Air Liquide supplies high-pressure gas cylinders used to inflate tires on aircraft. The use of nitrogen helps reduce wear while improving safety.
Tungsten inert gas welding (TIG welding), also known as GTAW-gas tungsten arc welding, is a process used when very high welding quality is required for pressure vessels, piping, or food containers. An additional filler metal, often a wire rod, may be used either manually or in an automatic process through a separate wire feeder.
