From concept through to implementation: more than 150 qualified processes cover the entire production chain including development, design, manufacturing, surface coating, assembly, testing, and recovery. We are a full service tier-1 partner.
For both civil and military aviation, Deharde manufactures single parts and entire aerostructures. Our areas of expertise – machining, plant engineering, and wind-tunnel models – constitute efficient synergies. Deharde is “Build to Spec.” qualified and ISO 9001/EN 9100 certified. Customers worldwide appreciate the high quality and the reliable functional safety of our products. We also meet special requests successfully by establishing promptly new processes and by managing recovery projects efficiently.
Our commitment to R&D programs for advanced technology topics ensures top company progression. At the Airshow we invite you to discover our innovative Deharde Polygon Forming® of sheet metals that accomplishes remarkable quality and cost advantages.
We manufacture products for the space and aviation industry:
Our expertise covers the entire production chain:
Examples: Among other projects, Deharde is currently delivering
At the Dubai Airshow we show you our innovative Deharde Polygon Forming® (DPF), a production technology for forming of large sheet metals with significant benefits in cost, quality and time.
DPF is applicable for the production of curved, twisted and conic skins in order to form doublers, straps etc. made of metallic materials. Even though formed after milling, the sheet metal still keeps all dimensions (pilot holes, pockets etc.).
Numerous aerodynamic measurement campaigns of leading aircraft manufacturers, wind tunnel operators and research institutes are based on our precision models. These help to determine the exact air resistance, flow behavior, buoyancy, etc. We design, produce and instrument scale models for all types of wind tunnel. Be they low or high-speed, atmospheric or cryogenic wind tunnels, we offer the appropriate model type for all applications.
We develop and manufacture production equipment. E.g., sub shells for the BelugaXL are assemlied on our jigs. Beforehand, these sub shells are formed by Deharde Polygon Forming®. This is an innovative method to manufacture skins, dopplers and other metal forming components. It stands out to cost-efficiency and very high quality. Metal sheets can be curved in cylindrical, conical and twisted form. After bending with Deharde Polygon Forming® the dimensional accuracy is warranted
Super shells form the huge main fuselage of the super airfreighter BelugaXL of Airbus. Complete design, stress and production of super shells is performed by Deharde. Design activities supported by the Umlaut Engineering GmbH. Implementation of innovative design and production technologies as automated design and polygon bending grant high quality at low costs. The body of the BelugaXL consists of three sections each made of three aluminum super shells. Transport via direct harbor-access.
