Alcoa Inks Sharing Agreement with Embraer to Build High-Performance Aircraft

Alcoa and Embraer have inked a sharing contract for a new technology, which will use the proprietary aluminum alloys and superior manufacturing and design methods of Alcoa along with its fastener technologies for helping in the advancement of Embraer’s high-performance wing solutions and metallic fuselage for its airplane series.

Embraer is the main commercial jet manufacturer and is one of the primary exporters of Brazil. Alcoa is the primary provider of aluminum plate, sheet, forgings and extrusions, and fasteners to the aerospace industry and Embraer. This new deal will influence the new technology improvements and aerospace technology experience of Alcoa for supporting Embraer in making high-performance aluminum aircraft by means of the latest aluminum products that contain lithium aluminum alloys and aluminum, superior structural technologies and design approaches and the new joining and fastener technologies.

During June 2011, Alcoa released several new solutions for the aerospace industry, which includes progressing structural technologies and new proprietary alloys that will reduce the cost, maintenance and weight of the new aircraft. After the release of this solution, Alcoa received the main supply contracts from airframers.

Embraer Technology Development’s Vice President, Jorge Ramos, stated that the company is famous for manufacturing high-performance aircraft and it is excited to combine with Alcoa for expanding the subsequent stage of solutions, which will increase the performance level for the clients.

Alcoa Latin America and Caribbean’s President, Franklin Feder, commented that the company is expecting to build on the new solutions on metallic technology in order to support Embraer for making the best planes.
