Aubert & Duval creates superalloy heat treatment line

July 27, 2021

With the support of the France Relance recovery plan and The French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME), Aubert & Duval, Paris, has announced a new heat treatment line at its facility in Pamiers, France.

The special processes employed in heat treatment are a key area of knowledge for Aubert & Duval, enabling the modification of materials’ and parts’ microstructures to achieve the highest specifications required by its customers, including those in demanding industries such as aeronautics, energy and defence.

Almost all the parts produced by Aubert & Duval’s new Pamiers line undergo heat treatment procedures. As these are post-processing operations, the performance must be right first time in order to not negatively impact lead times or costs.

The new line has been designed to the highest standards in order to reduce safety risks, ensure process & quality control the digitisation, increase productivity & flexibility and make processing greener (an 8% reduction in CO2 emissions was resultant across the entire site).

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
