Ecor International has collaborated with Thales Alenia Space since 2014, carrying out manufacturing of critical parts and integrations of fluid circuits used in aircrafts and orbiting satellites. In particular, the company deals with piping used in the transport of fluids such as oxygen, water and azote necessary for the survival of astronauts in the space and the propulsion of vehicles.

These critical components are highly complex; they need a specialized know-how in the management of all production process phases, quality controls (that have to be strict), compliance with standards imposed by the project. For the Aerospace, the company carries out bending and welding activities on pipes and structural components, non-destructive controls, pressure leak tests and high-vacuum heat treatments.
