Peak Technology GmbH‘s products launch rockets into space, move satellites into the right orbit, propel formula 1 cars, electrify air travel, store hydrogen, and win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It is the challenge that drives the Upper Austrian lightweight construction specialist.
In 2007, Managing Director Dieter Grebner founded Peak Technology GmbH with the aim of offering innovative lightweight solutions for racing and industrial applications. Right from the outset, he set store on the use of fibre composite materials and on close cooperation between development and production. Today, Peak Technology employs some 130 staff, developing a wide variety of products for customers in the motorsports, aviation and aerospace industries worldwide. The company implements specific customer projects in the shortest possible time, starting with the design and construction through to prototype development and quality validation. It is also possible to produce short runs directly on site. Peak Technology relies on the latest composite technologies in processing and develops its expertise in the fibre composites field through on-going training and cooperation with research facilities.
Ever since the company was founded, Peak Technology has produced high-pressure tanks for gases for motorsports and various industrial applications. The team started producing high-pressure tanks for space travel in 2009. These tanks are subject to the strictest safety criteria and are used, for example, in satellite drive systems. Tanks by Peak Technology are used in the Galileo navigation system, acting as fuel tanks for carrier rockets such as the European Vega-E. The Upper Austrian company develops and produces tanks with a weight-optimised design. The right choice of material and the production method help to massively reduce the unit costs, which benefits customers on the constellation market.
Peak Technology also focuses on the sustainable development of the aerospace industry. For example, engineers are also working on strategies to support the recycling of the fibre composite components. Avoiding space junk is also a major topic. The possibility of thermal degradation (demisability) of the tanks at the end of the satellite‘ s service life is at the forefront of new development projects.
"Our greatest motivation is the will to always do even better," as Dieter Grebner emphasises. "That‘s why we constantly optimise our methods and processes and invest huge amounts of time and resources in the further training of our already highly-trained staff. Because they are the only people who can guarantee maximum quality without compromises – from 3D design and simulation, through to production and our consistent quality management." In close cooperation with customers, Peak Technology creates individual and flexible solutions which complete the transition from initial prototypes to series production in record time. In intensive work processes, the Peak Technology team looks for the best solution and works with vision and the highest precision.
