We work hard on the ground to help your business take off.
Inert Gases for Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace
Additive manufacturing is often used in the development of spare parts, small series production and tooling. It has had the greatest uptake in industries where its relatively higher production costs can be outweighed by the advantages additive manufacturing can deliver, particularly in highly innovative industries, such as aerospace.
Additive manufacturing requires an inert environment to prevent the contamination of components. Our gas supply of nitrogen, argon, and helium, combined with our technology can allow you to complete more customized parts, improve product strength and functionality, and reduce assembly time.
With proper atmospheric control, the amount of oxygen in your environment can also be closely monitored. Even extremely small variations in oxygen content can impair the mechanical or chemical properties of alloys sensitive to oxygen like titanium or aluminum and can affect the composition of the product, resulting in negative physical characteristics such as discoloration and even poor fatigue resistance.
Gas Supply for Wind Tunnels
Our industrial gas supply for the aerospace industry includes gas concentrations appropriate for hypersonic and heated environments. Our professionals listen to your requirements to recommend options for you, whether you need industrial gases for your testing environment or you are ready to go live with your application.
Industrial applications for aerospace & aircraft
At Linde, we design and install customized systems to provide the high pressure, high flow rates required for autoclave inerting. Linde provides an online survey tool and other services to evaluate your system and work toward optimizing industrial autoclave performance.
From annealing and brazing to sintering and carburizing, our nitrogen-based heat- treating applications are low in cost, high in productivity, and help you meet the stringent standards of the aerospace & aircraft industry.
Our proprietary Dilute Oxygen Combustion burners are used to provide even heating in critical preheating processes for the forging of exotic alloys for jet engines and other critical aerospace and aircraft parts.
