ALPEX are taking the next step into space travel


Austria’s ALPEX Technologies has taken on the complete development and manufacture of a production system to manufacture fuel tanks for a rocket-powered launch vehicle.

ALPEX Technologies is a global provider of production systems for the manufacture of carbon fibre components for the aviation and automotive industries. The company sees itself as a provider of complete tooling system solutions – from development and design concept through construction and completion to Installation.

The Austrians have made quite a name for themselves as innovative tooling experts in the world of composites. Thanks to the expertise, flexibility and top quality of the manufacturing solutions it produces, ALPEX has gained a reputation as a reliable partner for leading manufacturers of high-performance, lightweight components in the aviation and automotive industries.

ALPEX are now taking the next step into space travel, after its engineers were commissioned two years ago to work up a design concept for manufacturing fuel tanks for a launch vehicle. The client, which has been manufacturing essential components for the Ariane launch vehicles for years, is an internationally renowned firm in the aviation and aerospace sector. They are now seeing the fruits of their labours, with ALPEX getting the green light to implement the design concept and manufacture the production system. The commission includes developing and manufacturing a production system to deliver the carbon-fibre booster fuel tanks for the Ariane 6 rocket.

Ariane is a series of European launch vehicles commissioned and developed for the European Space Agency (ESA).
