Fine Tubes For Airbus And Liebherr

Fine Tubes, a manufacturer and global distributor of precision tubes, is currently producing Grade 9 and Grade 5 titanium tubing for Airbus and Liebherr. The tubing will be used for high-pressure hydraulic systems required for the A380 and for the high-lift transmission systems designed and produced by Liebherr for the A350. “The advantages that titanium offers in terms of weight saving and strength make it an ideal material for high performance aircraft applications and we are seeing a definite increase in its specification by a range of end user,” said Paul Mallet, business development manager aerospace, Fine Tubes.
