More than a material: high-performance metallurgical solutions

Heat resistance, hardness, fatigue resistance, anti-corrosion, bio-compatibility. Demand more from material.

 

Because your products require advanced technical properties, Aubert & Duval is your partner for the design and production of materials with special characteristics and high performance. Our teams listen to you in order to deliver the right technical and logistics solutions for your specific needs. Driven by innovation, Aubert & Duval supports you in meeting your industrial challenges and ensuring the success of your developments.

 

From Aerospace, Energy and Defense to Transport, Specialties and Tooling: for more than a century Aubert & Duval has contributed to its customers’ projects by designing and making cutting-edge metallurgical solutions.

 

We design, make and process materials to deliver high-performance metallurgical solutions in the form of bars, powders, billets, semi-finished products and forged, closed die-forged or pre-machined parts in high performance steels, superalloys, aluminium and titanium alloys.

 

Designing

Our business starts with the design of materials and grades that can meet your demands. Thanks to the globally recognised know-how of our metallurgists, production processes are then developed, modelled and optimised to ensure their reliability and repeatability, while guaranteeing our customers optimum competitiveness.

 

Melting

To give materials the right characteristics for your applications, the industrial phase is based on a strict, atmospheric or vacuum production process followed by remelting to obtain special steels, alloys and superalloys.

 

Processing

The metal is then processed by atomizing, rolling, forging or closed die-forging. Our facilities have cutting-edge processes and tools. They guarantee the highest characteristics and the most complex forms. Following this conversion stage, we finish and control the materials in our workshops.

 

Innovating

With an innovation policy focused on the development of your products, our Research & Development department and the support of a network of global experts (customers, universities, research laboratories), Aubert & Duval’s strength is the ability to design full metallurgical solutions and create new alloys and parts that meet your projects’ specific needs. Our laboratories and experts have also developed real expertise in modelling to make your development cycles shorter and more reliable.

The ERAMET GROUP
