For the space industry, TFS has provided thruster valves for satellite propulsion systems, as well as high-pressure valves, micro pumps, etc. for space experimental devices or spacecraft service modules. Since the foundation in 1959, TFS has built a track-record of high-level quality control, highly customised products and high-mix low-volume production in the medical field. These strengths are now also utilised for our aerospace products. In particular, automated cell culture technology for regenerative medicine characterises TFS as one of a few manufacturers of microgravity cell culture devices in the world.
For aircrafts, we also have developed various valves. In addition, we supply precision machined parts to a Tier 2 supplier for Mitsubishi aircraft and Embraer airframes. We acquired the quality management system AS9100/EN9100 certificate in August 2014.
