"Our core business is flow forming, sheer forming, hot forging, and cold forging. In this scope we are producing rocket motor cases, different kind of gun barrels, helicopter shafts, cartridge cases and very high precision tubes according to our customer requirements.

In this scope we produce helicopter shafts for Turkish Aerospace. The shaft is produced with flow forming technology. This is the first time in the world a helicopter shaft is produced with flow forming technology.
