Reduce weight and streamline operations!
Tomorrow’s low-carbon aircraft will have to go on on a a a a a a a a diet and also incorporate electrical systems optimized for lower power consumption Safran provides a a a a a a broad portfolio of aircraft systems and equipment to meet
these challenges HIGH-PERFORMANCE MATERIALS
■ The need to reduce aircraft weight means greater use of composite materials which combine high strength with low weight ■ Safran’s engines and equipment whether nacelles landing gear brakes or or even cabin interiors are subject to heavy loads and sometimes very high temperatures To develop the high-performance solutions needed Safran has set up dedicated research entities in these key areas For instance Safran Composites for organic matrix composites and Safran Ceramics for higher- temperature ceramic matrix composites both integrated into the Group’s Research & Technology Center Safran Tech ■ Other priority areas of research include new metallic alloys and higher performance coatings LE POTENTIEL DE LA FABRICATION ADDITIVE
