Applications

Our technology consists of combining different solutions to be able to deliver parts with high value and insure lightness and stiffness.

Thanks to our know-how and technology, we are able to provide subcontractors with the parts necessary for them to provide end-products for their customers.

Since we work closely with suppliers who provide the end-products, we are better able to understand the actuel needs of the customers.

Currently, we are working with various partners on products that will be used in the transportation sector tomorrow.

We consider our technology to be an important link in the development of more efficient transportation for the future.

Halcyon challenges its technology to make rim wheel

Today we push our technology to show that sandwich aluminum can be used in other applications. It is interesting to look at what makes more impact on energy consumption acting on mass. The fact is weight in rotation is the best way to start reducing mass because it has an impact on all the kinematic chain of a car.


Increase acceleration

Reduce stopping distance

Improve handling and control

Reduce fuel consumption

Recyclability
