Alcoa set to be heavy player in Russian titanium

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/alcoa-set-to-be-heavy-player-in-russian-titanium-392063/  

By: Dan Thisdell at FlightGlobal

Excerpt:

Many aerospace companies are trying to make a big noise in titanium these days, but workers at Alcoa’s parts fabrication plant at Samara, in southeastern Russia, had best tighten up their ear protectors. From 2016, their 75,000-ton forging press – until recently the world’s biggest – will be going to work on material supplied by Russia’s VSMPO-AVISMA, the world′s largest manufacturer of titanium ingots and forged products.

Read Alcoa joint venture press release

More excerpts:

  • But while the Samara plant – which dates back to 1960 – and this “beautiful piece of equipment” have been focussed on aluminium, Roegner notes that a forge is “material agnostic”.

 

  • In VSMPO, Alcoa has a very mature partner, whose operations span from the mines to finished products. It has been strategic partner to Boeing since 1997, and through a Russian joint venture that will draw some $27 million in Boeing investment over 30 years supplies the 787 and other Boeing programmes with rough-machined titanium parts for finishing in the USA.

 

  • At the MAKS airshow in Moscow this summer, VSMPO and Airbus renewed a 20-year relationship, signing what the companies called an “end-to-end strategic collaboration” covering development, processing and recycling of titanium material for all Airbus programmes. VSMPO is also a key organiser of Russia’s so-called “Titanium Valley” project, a government-industry initiative to build a cluster of expertise in the Urals region.

 

  • Alcoa is of course best-known for aluminium. Roegner is probably not exaggerating when he says no Western aircraft programme has ever flown without some Alcoa content; even the Wright Flyer’s engine block and crankcase were cast from Alcoa aluminium.

 

  • Today, fasteners, investment castings and structural materials such as sheet, plate, forgings or extrusions each account for about a third of Alcoa’s $3.8 billion annual aerospace business. But what shouldn’t be overlooked is that the company has long been a multi-material supplier, working in titanium, nickel, steel and magnesium. Alcoa has produced structural castings in titanium since 1917, and titanium figures significantly in fasteners and castings like hot-section engine blades.

Alcoa Solutions Help Customers Achieve Sustainability Targets

The General Electric GEnx engine on the Boeing 787 is part of GE's "ecomagination" product portfolio - GE's business strategy to develop new, cost-effective technologies that enhance customers' environmental and operating performance. As part of its sustainability strategy, Alcoa develops solutions to help customers achieve their goals.  The GEnx engine contains Alcoa solutions like this highly engineered fuel metering casting (left) and these engine airfoil blade castings (right) that help this engine be the quietest commercial engine ever produced.

 

IMG_2265  DSC_0130


Aircraft manufacturers like Boeing and Airbus, and their partners like GE are continuously seeking to refresh existing or develop next-generation aircraft and components. They want planes that are less expensive to fly, have longer inspection intervals and useful lifetimes, and offer enhanced comfort for the flying public. This creates significant opportunities for Alcoa aluminum and a wide variety of our other aerospace products. To meet this growing need, we are developing new solutions in partnership with our customers.

Alcoa Helps the World's Biggest Passenger Jet Get Off the Ground

The Airbus A380 is the largest and most advanced aircraft of its kind.  It stands to reason that the parts that make up the A380 are also large and advanced.  This forging from Alcoa Forgings and Extrusions is the smaller of the three large forgings we supply to the A380.  This piece helps hold the landing gear onto the plane and is made with Alcoa’s proprietary 7085 alloy.  The “baby” of the major forgings, this piece weighs 3,000 pounds.   Fact: The A380 features more new Alcoa metallics and products than any other aircraft in Alcoa's 100-plus years of aerospace history. Our products are literally used from nose to tail, from the forward landing gear support structure to forgings for the horizontal and vertical stabilizers.

The Airbus Military A400M is an Impressive Airlifter

The A400M is one of the stars of the 50th edition of the Paris Air Show. The Airbus A400M is an impressive, new military transport aircraft that features Alcoa aluminum on the fuselage.  The A400M has been rigorously designed to meet the equipment transport needs of modern armed forces. The A400M can perform missions which previously required two - or more - different types of aircraft.  The transport is light so it can carry more cargo, achieve a longer range, and maneuver into difficult terrain during potential conflicts.

What's Changed at the Paris Air Show Over the Last 30+ Years?

From the sands of Kitty Hawk to the Sea of Tranquility and beyond, Alcoa solutions have helped shape every major advance in aviation. Our metal went into the crankcase of the Wright Brothers' Flyer and into the propeller that pulled Lindbergh across the Atlantic. Our innovations in materials, engineering and design have helped usher in commercial aviation, break the sound barrier and make space travel a routine commute.

To learn more about Alcoa's history at the Paris Air Show, check out this interview with Alcoa's Colin Davies, Sales Director - Alcoa Aerospace Europe. Colin has been coming to the Paris Air Show since the 1980's and shares his insights as to what has changed (and not changed) over the years.

Alcoa Expanding Aluminum Lithium Operations to Meet Customer Demand

Alcoa’s new aluminum lithium alloys provide the best strength-to-weight performance in Alcoa’s aerospace alloy portfolio combined with better stiffness, damage tolerance, and corrosion resistance. The alloys are used in extrusions, forgings, sheet and plate applications across aircraft structures, including airplane wings and fuselage components. The expansions follow discussions with airframers subsequent to the launch of the alloys.

 

“We introduced our third-generation aluminum lithium alloys at the last Paris Air Show and demonstrated their potential to increase fuel efficiency, reduce inspection intervals, improve passenger comfort and lower capital costs for aerospace manufacturers,” said Mark Vrablec, President of Alcoa Aerospace, Transportation and Industrial Rolled Products. “The response was phenomenal. In fact, the response indicated demand that exceeded our production capacity at the time, so we launched initiatives to expand our aluminum lithium operations at three locations around the world (latest announcemenet). The initiative also provided us with the opportunity to increase our aerospace recycling capability for customers to benchmark status in the industry,” Vrablec added.

Alcoa's Markus Heinimann, Technology Manager for Aerospace, Talks Forgings for the A380

For Alcoa, the A380 represents more than a decade of new ideas in metallurgy, structural design, logistics and collaboration with Airbus. With every A380 that takes off, literally more than a million pieces of Alcoa technology take flight, from fasteners to fuselage skins and on to an endless list of essential solutions. And many of these are superlatives equal to the breakthrough that is the A380: the biggest wing spars ever made, the largest, most fatigue resistant upper and lower wing skins, the largest wing spar ever forged, and new titanium lockbolts that marry metal to composite in the A380's huge wing box, and the world's largest aerospace forgings for landing gear.

 

This project has engaged the talents of a generation of minds at Alcoa. As the number of flights grows; and as the number of aircraft grows; it will engage the production, support and innovation capacities of a generation more. Alcoa. Advancing each generation.

Paris Air Show goes green! Check out how Boeing & Alcoa partner to boost aluminum recycling

Alcoa has been a leader in recycling of aluminum since it helped create the modern-day aluminum industry in 1888. 125 years later, Alcoa continues its leadership in the recycling of aluminum by partnering with longtime customer Boeing on a new program that will significantly increase recycling of aluminum aerospace alloys used during the production of Boeing airplanes. 

Approximately 8 million pounds of aluminum is expected to be recycled within the program each year.

The recycled products will be taken from aluminum alloy scrap material used in the production of wing and fuselage components of Boeing airplanes. The forms will include aluminum extrusions, sheet and plate products.

"This program will maximize the value of aluminum scrap materials throughout the supply chain while also reducing waste," said Leslie Shuman, director of supply chain for Alcoa's aerospace, transportation and industrial rolled products, in a statement. "It also allows us to work closely with Boeing to ensure the quality and integrity of the materials we bring into our system for recycling."
