Aerospace / Aircraft Seating System

 Alu-Alloys in the Aerospace Industry

Aluminum is a lightweight and strong material that has a long history of use in the aerospace industry due to its excellent strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and durability. Aerospace seating systems are no exception, and aluminum offers ideal solutions for designing and manufacturing aircraft seating systems.

Weight, strength, and durability are critical factors in aerospace design. Reducing weight can result in significant fuel savings and improved efficiency. By using aluminum in the seating system, designers can reduce the overall weight of the aircraft, allowing for increased fuel efficiency and a reduced environmental impact.

Aluminum’s excellent strength and stiffness make it an ideal material for use in aircraft seating systems that must withstand significant stress and loads. Additionally, aluminum offers excellent corrosion resistance. Aircraft are often exposed to harsh environments, including high humidity and temperature changes. Aluminum’s natural resistance to corrosion makes it an ideal material for use in these conditions, ensuring the longevity and durability of the seating system.

The Most Suitable Aluminum Alloy for Aircraft Seating System

There is a broad range of aluminum alloys to choose from, and it is important to select the alloy with properties that are best suited for airplane seating systems.

The most widely used aluminum alloys in aerospace seating systems are 2024-T3, 6061-T6, and 7075-T6.

2024-T3 offers high strength and excellent fatigue resistance, making it ideal for providing long-term durability in items subjected to cyclic loading. It is highly formable and easy to machine, allowing for the creation of complex shapes and designs.

6061-T6 is a medium-strength, corrosion-resistant alloy that is often used for non-structural components such as seat armrests and tray tables. It is also highly formable and can be easily extruded, formed, and welded, making it well-suited for creating customized seating solutions that meet the unique needs of aircraft and passengers.

7075-T6 has exceptionally high strength and stiffness and is commonly used for critical structural components where high stress and load-bearing capabilities are required.

Why choose AMSpec

AMSpec is highly praised by both domestic and foreign partners due to our highly stable products and lean processing technology. Our goal is to work together with our customers to choose the best product design and ideal alloy selection to provide the highest-quality aerospace-grade products.

For the past 20 years, AMSpec has been developing and manufacturing high-quality aluminum alloy products with a focus on extrusion and post-processing of high-strength aluminum alloys. Our in-house processing includes extruding, pressing, drawing, heat treatment, CNC machining, and more. After accepting a commission from one customer to evaluate the 6063 aircraft motor housing, in 2019 AMSpec received AS9100D certification. We also received more inquiries from the aviation industry for 7075, 7050, and 6082 seamless pipes. We are currently developing durable and efficient seating systems for the aerospace market.

Aside from meeting the specifications and requirements of the aerospace industry, AMSpec has gradually shifted its research from static performance testing to more important SCC and fatigue-related environmental and dynamic performance testing. This includes corrosion protection of raw materials and possible effects of the elements on product surfaces during moving or dwell phases.

No matter what your aerospace aluminum alloy extrusion needs may be, we welcome you to contact AMSpec to find your ideal solutions.
