Top performance in space applications has been a key part of INVENT’s activities since its foundation. The Space business unit is one of the main areas of application of the company’s products: lightweight composite structures. Thanks to its many years of experience, its broad range of machinery and its certified quality management system, INVENT is well positioned to develop, qualify and produce sophisticated hardware for spacecrafts.

The product spectrum ranges from metal and monolithic fibre composite structures through to complex multi-material structures and their integration and qualification. Perfect synergy: the in-house machining department can manufacture the required metallic parts from materials such as Titanium, Invar or Aluminium.
