Orfa Visser has more than 40 years of experience in handling the requirements for the aviation sector, including the application the strictest quality standards and procedures. Safety and reliability are the very first concern. Our experience in the aviation has made it possible for us to develop a specific expertise with aluminium, Inconel and titanium. All materials must continuously perform under the most extreme circumstances. Aluminium has been used for many years in the aviation industry. In order to reduce the mass, to be lifted from the ground, one continuously searches for possibilities to apply lighter constructions within the airplane. On the one hand this means research for new and stronger alloys and, on the other hand, constructive adaptations. Here one can think of the development of seat frames, trolleys and working plates in the pantry, which all are now made of aluminium. The Inconel alloy is designed to resist high temperatures and to prevent corrosion, for example in gas turbines. Inconel is also frequently used for exhaust components in aeroplanes. Titanium alloys are frequently used because this metal is strong, light and highly corrosion-resistant. It is also highly resistant to extreme temperature fluctuations, which is why it is used in rockets.

Customers of Orfa Visser in the aerospace are for instance companies that produce:
aeroplane components for the worldwide aircraft and space exploration industries, such as tail sections, wings and parts of the rump, shock absorbers, aeroplane components and equipment.
