Le Bélier is a global foundry group specialised in the manufacture of moulded aluminium parts contributing to lighter products and the reduction of CO2 emissions for the automotive and aerospace markets.
The Group has a comprehensive offering ranging from design of parts, toolings, from prototypes to machined parts, including multi-process foundry.
Product design and development
This department participates to the product design with our customers, even undertakes the entire definition through feasibility and rheology studies and calculations of mechanical resistance.
The mechanical and tool-making design department define upfront the tools needed for the mass production of parts.
This transformation process involves casting a liquid metal or alloy in a mould in order to reproduce a specific part, after cooling. This activity covers a number of technologies, including:
❯ gravity die-casting, which is Le Bélier’s core business and is a technique for achieving superior mechanical characteristics;
❯ Low Pressure Casting for lighter weight parts with superior mechanical characteristics;
❯ sand-casting for small runs for the aerospace segment and automotive prototypes.
This manufacturing technique produces high-precision mechanical parts, which often forms an integral part of the foundry business given the service level expected by customers.
