The fuselage is the main assembly of an aircraft. Quite literally almost everything is attached to the fuselage: wings, tailplane, landing gear, cockpit, cabin, tanks.
The main requirements for the fuselage are, firstly, low weight and secondly, the largest possible stiffening formers in cross section and longerons in longitudinal section play a significant role in this stability.
Lightweight construction materials such as aluminium, aluminium/lithium alloys and composite materials such as CFRP and glass-fibre reinforced aluminium are chosen today for manufacturing this structure. Using our high-performance tools, including PCD tools, we develop component-specific machining solutions for the production of these components.
