HYBUILD is a group of 21 partners from 9 countries. Every month, a new HYBUILD partner is introduced in our Blog section. This month, Mikrometal sro.
Mikrometal – In a nutshell
Mikrometal is a production company focused on aluminium manufacturing. The company is located in the heart of Europe near the Czech capital Prague.
The company Mikrometal sro was founded 1991, specializing in mechanical fabrication, welding and robot welding, CNC milling and assembling of aluminium fabricated products. Robots and 5-axis-CNC-machines were standard machines combined with craftsmanship and high skilled workers and technicians. All trainings were done in the company as a part of know-how development.
Mikrometal is engaged in 2 research and development projects: radar precise measuring and aluminium foam. Since 2009 the company has increasingly carried out research activities and related investments in modern manufacturing and measurement technology. Coming from aluminium, the company combined the traditional processes with the even lighter aluminium foam.
Advantages of aluminium foam:
- 75% lighter then solid Aluminium
- freely moldable
- absorb vibrations
- high stiffness
- high bending strength
- thermally conductive
- electrically conductive
- sound absorbing
Mikrometal sro role in HYBUILD
Within HYBUILD Mikrometal sro is developing and producing a core part of the adsorption head exchanger with high surface area. For that it is required to produce different types of aluminium foam or cellular structures from aluminium.
