Ferry-Capitain is involved in the production of metallic tools for aerospace. Our R&D improvements works on design, material improvement to provide the best added value to our customers.

Lay-up tools

Supply of monobloc lay-up tools in Invar. The use of Invar offers several advantages.

  • Low Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE)
  • Long life time compare to composite mold
  • Adapted for high rate production

In addition, the foundry process allows near net shape and complex shape WITHOUT welding.

FC Frame

Our R&D engineers developed a special one part frame offering a competitive advantage compared to fabricated.

  • Up to 50% lighter than fabricated
  • Stable during curing cycle
  • More energy efficiency in autoclave
RTM Molds

We are able to provide big Invar block up to 14m.

FerrynoxN29K: The special Invar for your thermoplastic applications

We developed a special Invar (patented) to match with the curing temperature of thermoplastic (720 °F/380 °C). The CTE remain stable to avoid spring-back effect.
