ECA : ECA Group partners with Prodways and completes the Additive Manufacturing / 3D printing offer for the Aerospace sector

Actusnews26/11/2015 à 07:00

Drawing on its strong presence of more than 20 years in the Aerospace industry, ECA Group continues to work alongside major players in the Aerospace sector as an industry player and partners with Prodways, a French company and subsidiary of Groupe Gorgé, specialized in 3D printing for the industry.

This partnership, which is part of the process of technological breakthrough in manufacturing methods, focuses firstly on production, inspection and maintenance tools. The development and completion of these tools, using the various available Additive Layer Manufacturing technologies, offer immediate benefits to the Aerospace sector, such as weight reduction, production cost savings and reduced manufacturing time.

This new technology strives for a smaller number of parts through the creation of shapes that were impossible to create through conventional machining processes until now. In applications that have already been developed, the number of parts is reduced by a factor of six, leading to considerable improvements in terms of tool ergonomics and the speed of implementation. Furthermore, the use of new polymer materials not only removes the risk of damaging aircraft components, but also leads to operating gains through the reduction or even elimination of regular geometrical inspections.

A first success was achieved through this collaboration. The tools manufactured are already being used in industrial operations on aeronautic production sites, and maintenance equipment (GSE) is being approved on aircraft prior to their implementation over the next few months.

An integrated industrial team, which comprises on the one hand ECA Group expert engineer teams developing aeronautic tooling solutions and, on the other hand, Prodways industrialization and production teams with more than 20 years' experience in additive manufacturing, enables to guarantee the characteristics and performance expected from tooling solutions specific to 3D printing in the Aerospace sector. In addition, the fleet of 30 Prodways machines covering the various metal and polymer technologies currently available provides essential opportunities to use this new manufacturing method to optimize ECA Group's Additive Layer Manufacturing solutions.

Moreover, ECA Group is implementing Additive Layer Manufacturing across all of its areas of activity by integrating the method into the industrialization of various product subsets in Robotics & Embedded Systems, such as airborne, land and naval drones.

The global 3D printing market in the Aerospace sector was valued at $0.8 billion in 2014. With a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20% over 5 years, the 3D printing market in the Aeronautics sector should reach $2.6 billion in 2020*.

Note d'information importante

Chère Cliente, Cher Client,

Nous souhaitons vous donner quelques règles à suivre pour investir dans les meilleures conditions et vous présenter les risques potentiels auxquels vous êtes susceptibles d'être exposés.

Vos connaissances, Votre profil d'investisseur
Tout d'abord évaluez vos connaissances boursières et financières et formez-vous en consultant le Guide de l'Investisseur, véritable introduction à la bourse et à l'épargne qui est disponible sur votre site Boursorama Banque sous la rubrique «Aide/Formation».
Définissez ensuite votre profil d'investisseur (prudent, équilibré, dynamique) et vos objectifs (durée de placement, rentabilité …). Ce constat vous permettra de vous orienter vers les produits et les marchés qui vous sont le mieux adaptés.

Pensez à vos besoins de liquidité
Adaptez votre durée de placement (1 mois, 1 an, 5 ans, …) à vos besoins de liquidités (projets, impôts …) et en tout état de cause, n'investissez pas en Bourse une partie trop importante de votre patrimoine.

La composition de votre portefeuille
Etudiez la composition de votre portefeuille : diversifiez vos placements afin de réduire au maximum le risque inhérent à un support ou à un secteur en particulier et n'investissez pas dans les produits optionnels (warrants, certificats), fortement risqués, si votre portefeuille n'est pas suffisamment important.

Connaître la vie des Sociétés
Renseignez-vous sur la société au sein de laquelle vous envisagez d'investir (actualités, santé financière, opérations à venir, …).

Agir en connaissance de cause
Soyez conscient des risques auxquels vous êtes exposés : de fait, si certains produits (actions volatiles, warrants, certificats, future…) ou certains modes d'investissement (Service de Règlement Différé) augmentent les espérances de gain, ils accroissent aussi fortement le risque de perte (totale). Ainsi, une connaissance technique préalable approfondie est requise, c'est pourquoi nous conseillons aux néophytes de s'écarter de ce type de produits.

Des risques différents selon les marchés
Prenez connaissance des caractéristiques des marchés sur lesquels vous allez investir : vous êtes confrontés à un risque variable (liquidité, volatilité, niveau d'information, change…) selon les marchés sur lesquels vous décidez d'intervenir (Premier Marché, Second Marché, Nouveau marché, Marché Libre, Marché étranger…).

Figez vos pertes
Enfin, la règle d'or à retenir est de savoir figer ses pertes : à vous de définir le montant de perte acceptable dès le début et une fois ce niveau atteint agissez en conséquence.

En appliquant ces quelques règles de bonnes conduite vous serez à même de mieux appréhender votre risque lorsque vous allez investir sur les Marchés

Un ensemble de cours complets sur la Bourse est également mis à votre disposition gratuitement et que vous pouvez retrouver sur votre site Boursorama Banque dans la rubrique «Aide/Formation». Si des questions resteraient en suspend, n'hésitez pas à contacter votre agence qui est à votre disposition.

Cordialement,
L'équipe de Boursorama Banque.
