Airbus and VSMPO-AVISMA to reinforce partnership

Airbus and VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the development of an end-to-end strategic collaboration, which covers development, processing and recycling of titanium material utilised for all Airbus aircraft programmes.

The contract was signed at the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2013 by Olivier Cauquil, Airbus Senior VP Materials and Parts Procurement and Mikhail Voevodin, General Director VSMPO-AVISMA.

Within the scope of the agreement, VSMPO-AVISMA and Airbus will jointly explore the development of new alloys and processes. Both companies have setup a working group that will seek to enhance the alloys portfolio according to Airbus’ needs.

VSMPO-AVISMA and Airbus have also agreed to engage Aerospace Dynamics Inc., a worldwide renowned machinist for the development of rough machining at VSMPO’s facilities, extending the scope of VSMPO’s activities for Airbus to higher value added products.

In the frame of the discussion, parties are analysing different cooperation setups such as a corporate Joint Venture, amongst others. In addition, the companies have engaged the qualification of VSMPO-AVISMA for the manufacturing of titanium tubes for aircraft applications to further extend Airbus’ product portfolio and covers the study of collection and recycling of titanium scrap, which would set-up a fully integrated industrial process.

Since the 1990s, VSMPO-AVISMA has become a major supplier for Airbus and its parent company EADS and today covers 60% of the group’s titanium needs in semi-finished products or titanium forgings.

Based on the strategic and increasing importance of titanium use in every new aircraft programme and in the aeronautic industry as a whole, in April 2009, EADS/Airbus and VSMPO-AVISMA signed the biggest and longest-term frame contract for the supply of titanium for Airbus and other EADS divisions until 2020. VSMPO-AVISMA is currently supplying titanium forgings for all Airbus programmes, including the A320neo, the A350 XWB and the A380.
