We prototype in 3D

Our responsiveness is crucial for the realization of your projects. We have the capability to produce your 3D prototypes in-house. Your parts may sometimes benefit from shape and/or topological optimization based on your constraints. We can achieve material reduction, for example… We will guide you based on your 3D files, which will serve as the starting point for our collaborative study.

Tooling shop

The manufacturing of all our tools is integrated

Our integrated Tooling Workshop is in direct collaboration with the design office and our partners (steelworkers and specialists in heat treatments). Our workshop ensures the yearly production of hundreds of molds, press tools, and machining assemblies for your parts. We also provide maintenance and repair services for molds and tools. The workshop, staffed by experienced professionals, is equipped with cutting-edge technology: high-speed machining centers, 5-axis machine, CNC EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining), and wire EDM guided by CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing). The welding and maintenance sector ensures the longevity of your tools.

Casting Workshop

The heart of our company: 70 years of experience

With 70 years of experience, our foundry ensures quality production. Our induction melting and holding furnaces guarantee an environmentally friendly carbon footprint. Concerned about our environment, we play a significant role in the circular economy of copper materials.

Since its creation, Davergne Foundry has remained a small-sized company that has developed around its core expertise: the gravity die casting of Aluminium-Bronze in shell molds. It has consistently adapted its resources and organization to technological advancements and the needs of its customers.

Our workshop is equipped with a high-performance machine park featuring automatic shell molding for medium to large series, and even robotic cells for larger productions. For smaller series, we have manual molding stations manned by experienced and skilled employees. In compliance with current standards, we guarantee the excellent reproducibility of our alloys and adherence to the strictest specifications and tolerances.

We provide tool cleaning through cryogenics, and maintenance and repairs are handled by our in-house service. The management and storage of your tools are facilitated through dedicated stockers on two vertical towers.


Compliant and Infinitely Recyclable Alloys

Our foundry is equipped with a metallurgical laboratory that conducts real-time metallographic analyses through spectrometry. Mechanical tests are conducted using our tensile testing machine and durometer, ensuring compliant alloys for each melt with material traceability. We can provide you with a material certificate according to your standards and market requirements. We formulate our alloys from raw materials (copper, aluminum, nickel, and iron), all sourced from established recycling channels. The metallurgical quality of their production and composition ensures a compliant alloy.

Cutting workshop

A fine and precise cutTING

7 hydraulic presses equipped with light curtains for operator protection allow for precise and repetitive cutting of your parts.

Machining Workshop

We machine your parts according to your needs

Our company is self-sufficient in machining and offers you finished parts in accordance with your plans. We have extensive experience in machining Aluminium-Bronze, and our workshop has been equipped over the years. Our machine park is comprehensive : 8 machining centers and 6 CNC lathes are operated by Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) using the Mastercam system. This enables and ensures a consistent and optimal quality production.

Multi-spindle machining transfers allow for a perfect finish of your series parts in compliance with your requirements. We have a robot with optical recognition for automatic part handling and 100% control.

Our skilled and experienced operators ensure uniform deburring. The quality of the finish of your parts is also guaranteed by our shot blasting machines and our vibratory finishing equipment.

Did you know ?

Each high-speed train contains around 20 tons of copper components, mostly in transformers and motors. The pantographs of high-speed trains exert a gigantic force on the wiring systems that supply the current (catenaries). Due to the ever-increasing speed of trains, special copper alloys have been created to maintain this much-needed contact.
