Machined thermoplastic aerospace parts

A key player in the aerospace, space and defence industry

The Ensinger Group has a long and extensive experience in machining in the aerospace industry. As the first PEEK transformer accredited by Airbus, we guarantee complete traceability of all machined parts with the supply of an ABS certificate, and can issue our EN10204-2.1, 2.2 and 3.1 certificates on request.

We also offer a range of high performance and technical plastics tested according to FAR 25.853 and JAR 25.853.

Certification, accreditation and qualification

  • ISO 9100 Certification
  • Airbus Approved Suppliers List (AQPL) materials (add AQPL number)
  • Realisation DVI PPAP / FAI EN 9102

We are qualified by the major players in the sector: Airbus, Safran, Ariane Group, Stelia, Daher, Figeac Aero, etc.

Case study

Thermal spacer

made of TECASINT

With Bepi Colombo to Mercury

Ensingers TECASINT material is part of Europe's first mission to Mercury with BepiColombo. The spacecraft for the mission are dependent on the function of the thermal control system (TCS), which keeps all the spacecraft's component systems within an acceptable temperature range during every phase of the mission. One part of the TCS is a thermal spacer, which functions as a barrier to high temperatures and radiation. This thermal spacer is a ring shaped plate made of TECASINT.
