Bodycote has announced it has entered into a long-term agreement with Safran. Bodycote’s global network will support the agreement, operating initially from strategically located facilities in France and Belgium.

Under the agreement, Bodycote will provide manufacturing services which include thermal spray coatings, electron beam welding, hot isostatic pressing (HIP), heat treatment and others to Safran companies and their key strategic first-tier suppliers. Bodycote’s processes and technologies are used to prolong the working life of critical components and provide in-service protection from factors such as abrasion, temperature and wear.

The agreement ensures that manufacturing requirements will be met by a quality-focused supplier to support the growth in Safran’s civil aerospace programmes, including but are not limited to CFM LEAP for Safran Aircraft Engines, helicopter engine programmes for Safran Helicopter Engines and landing gear systems for Safran Landing Systems. Bodycote’s international network of thermal processing and other specialist services offers security and mitigates risk in the supply chain.

Bodycote’s core business is to provide services that protect and improve the properties of metals and alloys. This improves the material properties of components, extending their operational life and making them safer.
