Products and Solutions
Innovation is Constellium’s driving force. A number of our innovations are now standards for the entire aluminium industry, bringing improved performance, enhanced manufacturability, and eco-efficiency. Our innovations are opening up new opportunities for customers in markets from automotive to aerospace, packaging, transportation, industry and defense.
Optimizing Transformation Processes
Beyond products and solutions, we also strive to optimize processes, whether internally, to improve productivity and reliability, or externally, to provide expertise to our customers. We keep a close eye on evolving processes, too. Trends such as 3D printing and Industry 4.0 are changing the way things are manufactured, and we plan to fully exploit their potential.
Our Technology Center (C-TEC) in Voreppe, France, is the birthplace of some of the most advanced aluminium technology in the world. By making state of the art resources available to our expert team of engineers and technicians, and collaborating with customers, universities, and research centers, we have discovered game-changing solutions for challenges in a variety of sectors. We recently enhanced our R&D capabilities with a new hub in Plymouth, Michigan, and Constellium’s University Technology Center at Brunel University London.
Collaborations and Partnerships
We believe that when it comes to innovation, an outward-looking mindset is an asset. That’s why we practice collaborative research among our teams, with our customers, and through long-term cooperation with close to 50 universities, research labs, and scientific partners around the world. These partnerships serve many purposes, from fostering new ideas and sharing emerging knowledge to exploring innovative concepts. They help to ensure our R&D stays cutting-edge and aligned with market needs.
