Aerospace magnetic shielding
Structured fine sheet metal work for aeronautics and space

Aeronautics and space

MECA MAGNETIC works for worldwide aerospace groups which represented, in 2021, nearly 20% of its sales, in sectors with high and varied requirements, mainly in Europe. These historical markets in aeronautics, space and transport have represented its core business for over 60 years.

MECA MAGNETIC’s portfolio includes major global customers such as Thales, Safran E&D but also niche companies such as Orolia, Ixblue…

MECA MAGNETIC knows how to adapt to a multiplicity of needs, whether it is for the development of prototypes and series, security, or technical mastery requirements.

We are structured and able to respond to the problems of : FAI, FMECA, special processes, traceability, repeatability, analysis of non-conformities by the 8D method, REACH & ROHS, compatibility with the requirements of the client, ethical and CSR practices, regular audits of systems or products by our customers…

  • Because continuous improvement is for us a key factor of success, we are constantly seeking to better respond to our customers by improving, service rate, quality, response to standards.

A high requirement on the manufacturing processes

MECA MAGNETIC offers a wide range of services enabling us to respond to subcontracting and/or co-contracting issues such as design assistance, tooling management, production and subassembly.

To ensure the needs in low frequency magnetic shielding, we work with the following materials: lead, stainless steel, nickel alloys, aluminium, mumetal, pure iron… for the main applications such as inertial power stations, atomic clocks, LVDT, flow meters…

Significant products

Our main applications are inertial units, atomic clocks, LVDTs, flow meters, etc.
  • Inertial units are used in aircraft, ships, submarines, missiles and sometimes other devices that need to be autonomous in order to know their position and move with precision.
  • Atomic clocks allow very precise time counting (e.g. network synchronisation).
  • -These LVDT-type position sensors are mainly used in aeronautics.

A rigorous support

The vertical integration of a significant part of the manufacturing of low frequency magnetic shielding and a large panel of approved subcontractors allow MECA MAGNETIC to answer in terms of costs, quality, deadlines, but also of processes and possible qualifications to the high requirements of its principals.

MECA MAGNETIC is thus able to fit into the normative framework required by the major principals:

  • – Competence and understanding of long product qualification cycles,

    – Stakes of securing manufacturing processes and flows,

    – Improvement of industrialization,

    – Traceability, repeatability, reactivity, record management;

    – Process risk analysis and mitigation, quality management and analysis

    – Qualification of operating procedures and operators,

    – Experienced personnel, support functions and management allowing an understanding of the customer’s issues.

MECA MAGNETIC has set up an HR organization that enables us to meet aeronautical and space requirements: our staff is qualified, supervised by experienced managers and our teams are stable. The organization also ensures its customers a regularity of competences, by a regular follow-up and measurement of the internal competences, training plan (internal and external), follow-up of the versatility, process qualification, parts and special processes and evaluation, anticipation of the retirements.

A key partnership

Historically a player in the aeronautics and space industries, MECA MAGNETIC can as such indirectly serve the defense markets. We thus quite naturally joined the EDEN (European Defense Economic Network) Cluster in 2017.

Created in 2008, the EDEN Cluster is an association of companies that allows its members to pool their industrial and technological skills and thus present the Defense, Security and Safety sector with a complete, solid and relevant offer.
