We accompany large groups, middle-sized businesses, SMEs and micro-enterprises in their development strategy, thanks to our high added-value expertise, our multi-disciplinary skills and the resources and industrial pilot projects of our research platforms.
Studying the behaviour of metallic materials or assemblies requires an interest in their weldability, their controllability and their mechanical characteristics.
This information is also necessary to repair them (refill) or to add functionalities (additive manufacturing).
Institut de Soudure is your partner in all of these areas.
Welding is definitely the most widespread means to assemble metallic materials. We help you choose the most suitable process for your application.
Essential for the qualification of any manufacturing process subject to mechanical or heat stress: simple mechanical testing, fatigue testing, corrosion testing, etc.
Advanced NDT: inaccessible zones, complex geometry parts, multimaterials, monitoring, TOFD, Phased Array...
We implement additive manufacturing technologies using metal wire deposited using robotic equipment fitted with welding generators or laser sources.
Industrial monitoring is a set of techniques to monitor product quality during its production (process monitoring) or its in-service health (Structural Health Monitoring).
The research platform dedicated to composite materials proposes solutions and services for the design, development and prototyping of parts made of composite materials reinforced by continuous fibres.
It is specialised in the design, implementation and industrialisation of closed-mould manufacturing processes and assembly by welding of thermoplastic composite materials.
Innovative joining solutions by welding polymeric or composite materials, reinforced or not: induction, co-consolidation, resistive...
Fatigue, instrumentations, visual and microscopic observations, mechanical and physicochemical tests...
