Stainless steel – for your most demanding applications

We boast a wealth of experience in the machining of stainless steel.

Due to its resistance to corrosion, stainless steel does not require surface treatments.

The machining of stainless steel also permits attaining excellent mechanical characteristics by heat treatment with certain grades.

 

We leverage our expertise in the machining of stainless steel predominately for hydraulic and automotive applications.

Aluminum – as light as air

Light and resistant to corrosion, aluminum is particularly used in the leisure sector – cycling, for industrial connectors, etc.

The surface of certain grades of aluminum allows high-quality aesthetic and mechanical characteristics to be achieved through anodization.

It’s a material widely used for the production of parts for the sport and leisure sector:

– bicycle parts: wheel axles, freewheel body, 

– electric bikes parts
