Atherm designs, manufactures and sales solutions since 1988
In close collaboration with your technical team, our R & D team proposes, co-designs and develops innovative and industrial solutions to meet your specifications and needs.
You benefit of all the feedback of an experienced manufacturer’s design office to take up your cooling & thermal challenges developments.
From first idea until mass production, our modeling and design process based on a long term “real life” experience offers you a true added value in projects support from the definition of the need to the delivered turnkey solution.
Our expertise and experience are recognized in various activities & areas such as:
We customize our solutions for your application
Each application is specific and so are our cooling solutions.
Your challenge is to:
- Homogenize temperature
- Transfer heat
- Control dissipated power
We work together on your need & technical data to find out the right solution
- Designed to cost
- Designed to reach your specification
Thermal & Mechanical design
Atherm’s design office is able to propose innovative solutions, calculate and dimension thermal & cooling systems according to customer’s requests. Our calculation and simulation tools have been improved and correlated for more than 20 years of “real life” testing, prototyping and mass production experience.
Atherm also cooperates with R & D academic institutions and participates to collaborative projects granted by European Commission. Thanks to academic research and industrial experience, we can offer you the right thermal answer for serial production with the reactivity of a small structure .
Mock up, demonstrators and prototypes are all achieved in our workshop then qualified in connection with customer’s design team.
Mass production & validation
Once products are qualified, mass production is launched in our French facilitiy. A dedicated production line equipped with test benches is built for you.
If necessary, each single part is tested according to customer’s specifications with our specifically designed & manufactured test benches.
Advanced heating & thermal control solutions for non ferrous liquid metal, Aluminium & Zinc
Our heaters are dedicated to
Our heaters are used in many light metal industries: Aluminium, Zinc (including galvanization), Magnesium are the preferred environments for our heaters.
After more than 20 years of existence, our proven technology is suitable for:
- High pressure die casting
- Gravity die casting
- Low pressure die casting
- Degassing & filtration unit
- Transport ladle re-heating
- Hot dip galvanizers.
Atherm customizes & manufactures solutions since 1988
Because each application is specific, our design team is able to propose innovative solutions, calculate and dimension the appropriate immersion heater model to match your needs and installation requirement.
Our calculation, simulation tools and knowledge have been improved and correlated for more than 20 years of “real life” testing and experience.
