Aubert & Duval receives support from the French Government for its superalloys project

May 4, 2021

Aubert & Duval, a subsidiary of the High Performance Alloys Division of the Eramet Group based in Paris, France, reports that it has received financial support for its long-term superalloys programme from the French Government via the ‘Plan de Relance’ – or recovery plan.

Aiming to be the first European independent channel dedicated to superalloys melting for the civil aerospace industry, the project plans to reinforce France and European Union industrial sovereignty by offering its aerospace sector an autonomous supply for these critical materials.

Superalloys are a type of nickel-base grades offering exceptional properties at high temperatures – mechanical strength, resistance to corrosion – which makes them particularly suitable for critical applications for energy (land-based turbines, oil & gas) and aerospace industries.

The French recovery plan was established to support companies and employees impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in order to initiate a sustainable recovery for the economy.

Aubert & Duval has significant experience in superalloys, specifically in forging those grades in Pamiers and Issoire plants where engines’ disks are forged. The company explains that it is also a pioneer of superalloys melting thanks to its capacities in les Ancizes, where, the company states, the first European re-melting furnaces were installed fifty years ago.

    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.
