Doncasters Bramah (Hall 4, C20) has signed a letter of intent to supply Airbus with leading edge track cans for the A380 superjumbo. Doncasters will produce lighter and stronger titanium components using super plastic forming (SPF) technology. A formal contract signing is expected soon.

Doncasters is also working with Rolls-Royce on developing the three-bearing swivel ducts and roll post ducts for the JSF STOVL programme. A research and development program is in place to try and reduce the cost while improving performance of these components.

Doncasters' core capabilities include investment casting, fabrication and precision forging of titanium.
