Bolstered by these years of experience, Coval has become a major partner for the aerospace industry.

Our commitments   TO SUPPORT aerospace sub-contractors on a stageby-stage basis with their projects, from the design of products adapted to the constraints through to vacuum network optimisation using dedicated software, and the on-site integration of our products in order to guarantee the installation’s performance.

  TO INNOVATE in order to better respond to the specific features of the aerospace industry (lightweight compact vacuum generation units that are easy to fit onto the frame, are very economical in terms of energy, and which do not require maintenance).

  TO MASTER the constraints relating to the handling and holding of the materials used: aluminium and composites, whether fired or unfired, painted or unpainted.

  TO SECURE: Our solutions make it possible to guarantee that the reference part will be held onto the tooling in the event of a power failure.    TO TRAIN AND ADVISE users on-site in order to better master vacuum applications.
