Customized development of precious metal and non-ferrous alloys
We offer flexible material engineering collaboration for partners from a wide range of industries where our materials are used.
We offer solutions tailored to your requirements
We offer product assessments and recommendations related to suitable materials, and customized production made of materials outside of the standard production portfolio. We can also design a completely new material that exactly meets your requirements.
We primarily focus on the optimization of precious and non-ferrous metal-based alloys from the perspective of their properties, and on processing procedures, using a wide range of technologies, from melting to additive technologies.
|What we do||Used technologies|
|Strength properties||Vickers hardness|
Tensile tests, shear strength (20 kN)
Creep stress-rupture test (1,500 °C, air)
|Structural analysis||Optical metallography|
Scanning electron microscope (TESCAN VEGA3)
|Characterization of the powders||Image (CAMSIZER X2) and network analysis |
Fluidity, bulk density
|Production technology||– Induction vacuum furnaces|
– Heat treatment (in a protective atmosphere)
– Forming processes (forging, extrusion, drawing, rolling, pressing)
– CNC machining
– Soldering, welding
– Surface treatments: blasting and metallization (Flame-Spray, Arc-Spray)
– Powder production (gas atomization, chemical precipitation, air-classifying and sieving)
– Powder metallurgy (mechanical alloying)
– Additive technology (Cold Gas Spray)
