Safety of the highest standard

Weight-reducing and high-strength materials such as titanium, nickel-based alloys and Inconel are extremely difficult to machine and result in high tool wear and longer machining times.

Under these challenging conditions, special metalworking fluids from Rhenus Lub meet the requirements of the complex process chain and represent an integral part of efficient and high-performance processes. Thus, they make a decisive contribution to effectively saving costs under the demanding conditions.

  • Machining of body frame, fuselage and wing components as well as engine parts
  • Innovative materials including titanium, nickel-based alloys and Inconel
  • Approvals from companies such as Airbus, Rolls Royce, MTU, Safran Aircraft Engines, Messier Dowty, Embraer
  • Metalworking fluids in accordance with the requirements of Airbus Industries Material Specification (AIMS) 12-10-001
