Innovation and security: SAM at the heart of aviation solutions


SAM has been working with industrial, aviation and defense industries for a long time and has therefore developed its aerospace tooling offer with the most demanding users. Innovation and security are the keywords of these aerospace solutions.

For SAM, the aerospace sector is currently the most important one in terms of expansion. Various SAM’s tools are adapted to the sector’s requirements and some specific solutions for large aerospace players are currently being tested in leading companies.

The toolmaker from Saint-Etienne is involved in a constant innovation action on a long term. The recent development of connected tools and ancillary equipment (roller cabinets, “communicating” key, connected workstations, intelligent starter…) is the symbolic example of this approach.

As to SAM, the innovation’s firm base is products’ quality to allow for the global industrial security enhancement. Security is the key preoccupation in aerospace solutions development at SAM, and many of them are proudly display industrial specialists’ approvals (from Airbus to Safran).

DYNASAM news 3Values and vision sharing as well as continuous dialog are what brings together SAM and large aerospace sector players. Generated by this collaborative state of mind between operators, local and R&D teams of SAM, clamping security, tools traceability and operators security solutions are particularly efficient and suitable for the aerospace sector.

The latest toolmaker’s innovations will be displayed on SAM’s booth at the Paris Air Show 2017:

  • DYNASAM 4.0 – the only controllable dynamometric key that insures clamps conformity
  • SERVISAM 4.0 – the intelligent workstation that insures tools’ traceability and their recurrent follow-up
  • BCAD-1 – the dynamometric automatic test rig 0-1000 Nm

SAM’s aerospace solutions will be exhibited for industrial and aerospace maintenance professionals and for the general audience at the International Paris Air Show 2017, on June 19-25, 2017 on the booth B133 Hall 4.
