AIC’s technology is the key to creating innovative products, optimizing manufacturing processes, and developing comprehensive testing methods.
Technology is an integral part of ensuring successful product improvements and the development of new types of AIC solutions. In order to handle the challenges that come with new projects, we take steps forward in developing innovative technology that can support various processes of product design and manufacture.
A type of arc welding that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode. A shielding gas is used to protect the weld pool from atmospheric contamination. This method is applied in joining thin elements, as it produces clean, precise welds with minimal deformation.
A method that uses a consumable wire electrode to produce the weld. It is suitable for welding thicker metal parts due to the advantageous aspects of the filler material once the connected edges are beveled.
A high-precision process using a focused beam of laser energy to melt and fuse metal. Laser beams can be focused to a small spot size, which allows for placing the welds precisely and with a minimal heat-affected zone. This advantage allows for the use of LBW in automated production lines for high-speed welding. At AIC, we use mirrors to reflect the laser beam, which makes this method even faster. Our factory is equipped with eight mirror laser cells with vision systems.
A manufacturing process of joining components by heating a solder alloy that melts between the base materials that are being connected. During the vacuum brazing process, the amount of heat introduced to the material is reduced, which causes a minimal distortion of the material. Thanks to that advantage, hundreds of small, precise connections can be made in the furnace at once. Our factory is equipped with three front-loading, horizontal vacuum furnaces for high-temperature processes like hardening, high-temperature brazing, annealing, and sintering.
An advanced process of joining stainless steel elements. This method is based on the principle of solid-state diffusion, in which the atoms of two solid, metallic surfaces intersperse themselves over time. At AIC, we apply this technology to produce heat exchangers that stand out with the ability to operate at extremely high pressures while maintaining a compact design.
