Participation in the "Industry of the future" program by GIFAS
On Tuesday January 4, 2022, Exxelia participated in the launch of the second wave around the "Industry of the future" program for the Grand Est region at the Bologna site of LISI AEROSPACE.
"Industry of the Future" Program
Launched in 2019, for four years, financed by the government, as well as the Regions, OPCO2i, companies and GIFAS: the "Industry of the Future" program aims to strengthen the competitiveness of the sector through the introduction of new 4.0 technologies. This program, which is the result of close collaboration between the Industrial Committee, the GEAD and the AERO-PME Committee, is a continuation of the "Industrial Performance" program. Its objective is to use new digital and production technologies in all phases of a product's life. In this respect, the Exxelia sites of Illange and Marmoutier are concerned.
Frédéric BOIS, in his capacity as Director of the Exxelia site of Illange, was able to actively participate in the exchanges. The objectives were numerous, namely :
- Inventory of the industrial maturity of our site of Illange.
- Recommendation and deployment of Industry 4.0 tools best suited to the situation of each company.
Thanks to the Grand Est region which contributes to the financing of the program, to the partners: Cetim - Technical center of mechanical industries, BoostAeroSpace SAS, UIMM, DREETS, OPCO 2i, and of course to AERIADES as a facilitator of the aeronautical sector in the region.

Magnetic Components based on Adaptive CCM Technology Exxelia designed CCM technology to respond to the growing interest of electronic engineers for inductors and transformers with multiple outputs, high power density and reduced footprint. Qualified for aeronautic and space applications, the CCM product line features terrific robustness. The monolithic design provides high mechanical performance, proven by the successfully testing in accordance with MIL-STD-202 (methods 213 and 204). The series offers five different sizes, allowing optimized component design in a pick-and-place surface mount (SMD) package. Through-hole (TH) packages are also available upon request. The CCM series is particularly flexible with a number of pins options available, from 2×6 pins for the smallest package, up to 2×10. CCM transformers and inductors can operate over a wide temperature range with a minimal temperature of -55° C. The standard thermal grade of the technology is 140° C. Thanks to the technology design, the thermal resistance is 30% lower than standard industrial components. The epoxy molding protecting the winding ensures a lower temperature gradient and a better heat dissipation. Each unit is thoroughly tested with a dielectric withstanding strength of 1,500 VAC. Component materials meet UL 94-V0 rating. Cost-effective Common-mode Chokes Qualified for Aerospace Exxelia designed this extensive and cost-effective range to be an easy commercial (COTS) solution for aerospace, defense, and other high-reliability applications. The TCM series is available in a through-hole package for horizontal or vertical mounting. TCM chokes are offered with inductances from 0.7 mH to 47 mH under rated currents from 0.3 to 4.0 A. Each unit is thoroughly tested with a dielectric withstanding strength of 1,500 VAC. Excellent thermal properties allow the series to operate from -55° C to +125° C. The high mechanical performance of the component materials (all meeting to UL94 V0 rating) makes TCM a perfect fit for aviation, defense and transportation industries.
Exxelia at Eurosatory
State-of-the art absolute optical encoders Exxelia has acquired deep expertise in the development of contactless position sensors of several type: absolute and incremental optical encoders, magnetic technology and inductive sensors. Several ranges of state-of-the-art absolute optical encoders will be showcased at the company booth - Hall 5A booth# E543. Absolute optical encoders are position sensors that use optical signals to identify an absolute angular position. They provide the highest resolution, operating speed reliability as well as long life operation in most demanding environments. Exxelia ranges of absolute optical encoders offer very high performance levels for a very small footprint: high precision (<30arcsc.), high resolution (up to 21 bits), extreme thinness (10mm) and EMI EMC compatibility. With their compact design, Exxelia miniature encoders meet the requirements of the most demanding application such as aerospace, defense, medical, oil & mining industries. Various protocols are available to match with any application. Exxelia encoders can be easily combined with other functions such as slip rings to provide customers turkey solutions. Two new ranges of MIL-qualified wet tantalum capacitors: MIL39006/22 & MIL39006/25 The recently introduced ranges of MIL-qualified tantalum capacitors will be showcased on the company booth. MIL 39006/22 and MIL 39006/25 respectively equivalent to CLR79 and CLR81 types featuring hermetically sealed cylindrical tantalum cases and axial leads are available in T1, T2 T3 and T4 cases with extended capacitance and voltage ratings. MIL 39006/22 is qualified for voltages from 6V to 125V and provides from 1200µF @6V to 56µF @125V. MIL 39006/25 is qualified for voltages from 25V to 125V and delivers from 680µF @25V to 82µF @125V. Both ranges combine high energy density with a large operating temperature range of -55°C - +125°C and H vibrations and shocks resistance.
