MPC is fully equipped to develop, produce, process and characterise your tailor-made alloys in small batches
In MPC, an extended range of lab equipments enables you to synthesize customised alloys in small batches. The unique metal alloys that you have defined can be processed from liquid phase, over rolling down to final heat treatment in one integrated laboratory. As such, MPC is the perfect partner to help you in your search for the specific metal alloys
- With the chemistry you want, i.e. from steels to non-ferrous alloys, from generic binary or ternary alloys to complex multi-component systems
- In the desired amount, i.e. from 20 g to 300 kg
- In a whole range of dimensions, i.e. from 0.1 mm thickness up to 50 mm and beyond
- With the targeted bulk or surface state by tailored thermal treatment in air, protective or reactive atmosphere
All small-scale facilities are available in the Metal Processing Centre to simulate the industrial metallurgical processing of virtually every alloy at laboratory scale. In that way your development cost can be considerably reduced thanks to limiting expensive industrial trials and by fully exploring the process window of the developed product. This results in a robust ferrous and non-ferrous alloy making process ready for upscaling in industrial environment.
The integrated concept of MPC not only provides you with tailor-made alloys. Thanks to the joint venture between OCAS and CRM, you have easy access to the skilled staff of both partners and a full-service commitment to and partnership with your research, production or process team.
