From light and long-lasting materials to perfectly drafted beverages, Aalberts is where technology matters and real progress can be made. Aalberts plays a crucial role in industrial niches where longevity matters. That’s why we are in it for the long haul.
Aalberts surface technologies improves material characteristics for regional and global industrial key accounts. We are specialised in surface treatments, heat treatments, brazing, additive manufacturing and post processing.
Our footprint and strong entrepreneurial culture enables us do business with customers who expect the same technology, process quality and service in different locations of the world. We own every moment when things stop working or when things need to work according to a plan, even when that plan is not fully written.
Aalberts surface technologies is an expert in austempering, an often-overlooked alternative to conventional heat treatment that offers many key benefits for treated metals, including increased strength, greater resistance to fatigue, and reduced distortion and cracking.
Aalberts surface technologies has developed a highly advanced process to harden the surface of (austenitic) stainless steel while maintaining corrosion resistance, which is being used by a growing number of customers in various industries to improve their operations and reduce costs.
Earlier this year VAF Instruments launched its Shaft Power Limitation (ShaPoLi) system, a pioneering technology that enables ship operators to comply with updated International Maritime Organization (IMO) measures aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from international shipping. The system is the first on the market that offers a type-approved solution, having being certified by the American Bureau of Shipping, Lloyd's Register, Bureau Veritas Group and DNV.
Aalberts surface technologies provides key customers, at both regional and global levels, with improved material characteristics for products across a wide range of industries. One of the innovative treatment solutions we offer is hot isostatic pressing (HIP), a process that enables us to provide customers with flexibility when designing and shaping components. This is especially valuable in the aerospace and automotive sectors, where custom-designed products are frequently required.
