From concept through to implementation, more than 150 qualified processes cover the entire production chain including development, design, manufacturing, surface coating, assembly, testing, and recovery. '
For both civil and military aviation, Deharde manufactures single parts and entire aerostructures. Our areas of expertise – machining, plant engineering, and wind-tunnel models – constitute efficient synergies. We grant highest quality, precision and reliable functional safety to satisfy our international customers.
Deharde is “Build to Spec.” qualified and ISO 9001/EN 9100 certified. Short-term implementation of new processes and successful recovery projects in case of customer distress proof our high flexibility.
Since more than 50 years Deharde serves the aerospace industry and today is a full service tier-1 partner.
At the Airshow we invite you to discover our innovative Deharde Polygon Forming® of sheet metals that accomplishes remarkable quality and cost advantages.
From concept through to implementation, we manufacture
Numerous aerodynamic measurement campaigns of leading aircraft manufacturers, wind tunnel operators and research institutes are based on our precision wind tunnel models. These help to determine the exact air resistance, flow behaviour, buoyancy, etc. We design, produce and instrument scale models for all types of wind tunnel. Be they low or high-speed, atmospheric or cryogenic wind tunnels, we offer the appropriate model type for all applications.
Deharde Polygon Forming® is an innovative method to manufacture skins, dopplers and other metal forming components. It stands out to cost-efficiency and very high quality. Metal sheets can be curved in cylindrical, conical and twisted form. Drills, pockets, cut-outs etc. can be done in flat condition with 3-axis-machines. After bending with Deharde Polygon Forming® the dimensional accuracy is warranted. The high-quality polygon-formed products are already on duty in aviation and space.
Super Shells form the huge main fuselage of the super airfreighter BelugaXL of Airbus. Complete design, stress and production of Super Shells is performed by Deharde. Design activities supported by the Umlaut Engineering GmbH. Implementation of innovative design and production technologies as automated design and polygon bending grant high quality at low costs. The body of the BelugaXL consists of three sections each made of three aluminum Super Shells with a dimension of approx. 8 x 8 m each.

Metal sheets can be curved in cylindrical, conical and twisted form. Drills, pockets, cut-outs etc. can be done in flat condition with 3-axis-machines. Compared to conventional roll forming, where expensive 5-axis machines with complex clamping devices and long lead times are required, remarkable cost benefits can be realized. After bending with Deharde Polygon Forming® the dimensional accuracy is warranted.
Forming process is performed in one throughput, with high repeat accuracy and 100% NC controlled. The high-quality polygon-formed products are already on duty in aviation and space.
