Light Alloys Components: Aluminium and Magnesium

Aluminium and Magnesium casting alloys are widely used in aircraft components because of their inherent weight advantages over other metals.

Examples of these components include power and auxiliary gearboxes, oil tanks, covers, casings, adapters, rotorcraft, transmission, housings, mast supports for helicopters and control comfort actuators (Gimbals), just to name a few.

It is worth noting that most of those components have very complex shapes and the related manufacturing is quite complicated as well as both time and cost consuming.
