The extraordinary characteristics of copper in terms of environmental impact represent an indispensable constituent of future innovations.
Characteristics of copper:
Lebronze alloys recent innovations try to combine one or more characteristics of copper while eliminating flaws. The multi-markets activity is a further advantage that allows transferring appraisals from one market to another.
It is a strategic axis of the group whether by the acquisition of companies mastering complementary technologies for elaboration, transformation and the joining of copper alloys (casting, continuous casting of wire, hot stamping, surface coating, and high-speed machining of moulds...) or by investment in proprietary processes.
This multi-process competence gives us the possibility to search for the most pertinent and innovative solutions that anticipate and respond to the customer’s future needs.
The Group’s Strategy and Innovation Department mobilizes its expertise. This Department is made up of 3 sub-departments that work constantly together:
"There is no substitute for experience" is Lebronze alloys’ intention and allows its customers and partners to benefit of its innovations when available and without any conditions.
When the Group’s experience is not enough, we undertake a development project, whether in a closed setting if the customer requires confidentiality or a setting of partnership for science and technology when we can ensure the management of the project. In the latter case, we are always looking for a reference customer’s support.
There are two steps within our innovation and development process, an initial draft determining the costs, limitations, resources and draft submission to the customer, followed by supply of the prototype prior to any investment decision.
