Aubert & Duval launches new metal powders brand and announces relocation of Irun production site

November 21, 2022

Aubert & Duval, a subsidiary of the High Performance Alloys Division of the Eramet Group based in Paris, France, has launched Stellar®, a new metal powder brand dedicated to Additive Manufacturing and announced the relocation project of its Irun, Spain, production site.

“These two announcements reflect our belief in the growth potential of the metal Additive Manufacturing market,” stated Eric Caridroit, president of Aubert & Duval Irun.

The Stellar brand is intended to embody all of Aubert & Duval’s ambitions in the AM field, boosting its offer in a fast-growing market, with the rise of space applications and challenges of decarbonisation. The new range of high-temperature alloys Stellar ABD®-900AM, Stellar MHA3300®, Stellar AD730® are intended to represent a solution to enable the space, aeronautics and energy industries to develop new generations of turbines offering better energy and environmental performance.

Aubert & Duval is also moving to a new stage of its growth with a relocation project of its metal powder production factory, scheduled for summer 2023. The new industrial site, with a planned 50% capacity increase, will be located in Oiartzun, Spain, 6 km away from its Irun factory. With this new industrial base, Aubert & Duval plans to increase its metal powder production to develop and produce customised AM alloys.

Adeline RIOU, Global Sales Manager for metal powders at Aubert & Duval, concluded, “Through the combination of freedom of design and innovative materials, this technology offers great opportunities for weight reduction and high temperature performance. This value proposition is at the heart of our new Stellar brand.”
