Company Presentation:

Company Activity:

At its origin, METAV S.A. (Aviation Metallurgy) was an engineering state company, established in 1980, engaged in production and research of:

  • conventional and investment castings (steels, superalloys, cast iron, Al, Mg, Ti);
  • conventional and precision forgings (steels, Al, Mg, Ti);
  • patterns, dies and casting tools, forging and die-forging tools;
  • wheels and braking systems for helicopters and light and medium weight aircraft.

After privatisation (in year 2000) METAV was splited in 3 different companies, one of them being METAV-Cercetare Dezvoltare S.A. (short name METAV-CD).

METAV-CD can provide a wide range of investigations / tests and services, e.g.

- (micro) structural investigations ( SEM, TEM and light microscopy, XRD, dilatometry, granulometry)

- electrochemical investigations (anticorrosive performances expertise of the alloys and coatings, anticorrosive cathodic protection and materials, chemical conversion coatings, metals and alloys electrodeposited coatings etc.)

- mechanical testing (in static and dynamic conditions, for all types of metallic materials for all technical fields, e.g: statically mechanical testing, high temperature mechanical testing, hardness testing, room temperature and under cryo-conditions impact testing, axial fatigue testing, fracture mechanics testing)

- expertise in PM processes (iron and copper based friction, antifriction sintered materials -bronzes, non ferrous powders, composites)

- consultancy for casting and forging technologies
