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).
