ABOUT

Accelerator of innovation

Weight reduction goes hand in hand with a reduction in energy and fuel consumptions, which in turn reduces harmful emissions. As such, 'light weighting' is a fundamental building block of our transition towards a climate neutral society. SAM|XL envisions speeding up this transition through collaboration and innovation. Eventually propagating our values regarding a healthy planet not only through speech and writing, but also through sustainable product development and manufacturing within Europe. 

Having 'aerospace' in our DNA, we understand as no other that the unimaginable can be achieved when man and machine collaborate to push boundaries. We strive to maximize the synergy between skilled professionals and intelligent manufacturing systems for producing, joining and inspecting composite and light-metal structures. Our pragmatic approach to achieve this long-term ambition: small steps, big impact.
