Main activity

KaliStrut Aerospace (formerly Sarma, previously SKF Aerospace France) designs, manufactures and qualifies connecting rods for applications dedicated to the transmission of loads and movements (structural connecting rods, engine support rods, flight control rods, door rods, etc.), with or without articulation.

We are a specialist in complex metal forging (monobloc with variable section), and benefit from solid experience in machining and swaging processes, and are particularly renowned for our proficiency of the constraint/weight ratio.

In addition to swaging and machining, which represent the company’s core expertise, KaliStrut also carries out numerous special processes in-house, such as NDT and surface treatments.

While our production tools incorporate robotization, and our Supply Chain relies on the digitalization of our processes, KaliStrut Aerospace is gratified by the confidence of its customers, aircraft and equipment manufacturers, also for the commitment of its teams and for the historical reliability of its expertise and products.
