Glove Boxes for Aerospace Industry Application

Industrial glove boxes are an example of specialist equipment that is frequently used in the aerospace industry. They can be used in the various phases of aeronautical projects, particularly in the manufacture, welding, assembly, rework and repair of parts. But what is an industrial glove box and what is it used for?


Industrial Glove Box


A glove box is a a type of containment equipment where certain manual manipulations are carried out in order to protect them from atmospheric components and the environment or to protect the operators from possible risks. It operates either in negative pressure under air or gas, or in positive pressure under argon, nitrogen or other gaseous mixture. Therefore, its configuration depends on the type of operation.

The industrial glove box can be single or multi-station. Operators access the work area using standard protective gloves attached to the sides. Sophisticated communication systems introduce and extract the elements to be protected without breaking the containment. The dimensions of the industrial glove box can be customized according to the type of application for which it is intended. In the aeronautics sector, large volume models are often used with medium/large transfer or loading airlocks.

The Glove Box for the Aerospace Industry


Aeronautical processes require special production conditions, hence the importance of choosing technical equipment that is adapted to these requirements and also complies with the relevant safety standards. Therefore, industrial glove boxes designed for the aeronautics industry meet a very high level of safety.


What are their applications?


A glove box can, for example, be used as a welding chamber when titanium or superalloys have to be welded. The working environment is completely safe, allowing welding to be carried out away from the ambient air in order to guarantee the quality and strength of the assembly. Also, this type of enclosure is widely used in additive manufacturing and in aeronautical maintenance processes involving the recycling of asbestos waste, etc.

The use of an industrial glove box is a priority in certain stages of aeronautical research and manufacturing. It improves work ergonomics and productivity, but also guarantees security when handling dangerous material.
