Founded in 1953 within the Gilson factories at La Croyère (B), PRECIMETAL established itself at Seneffe (B) in 1970 in its current premises, regularly enlarged and renovated.
Originally a family company, since 1991, PRECIMETAL has belonged to a large industrial group (Manoir Industrie, which then became Manoir Aerospace and lastly, Lisi Aerospace). In February 2017, PRECIMETAL was acquired by a new group of shareholders including most of its management supported by investment funds.
Frequent investments in increasingly modern equipment enable PRECIMETAL to offer its customers impeccable quality and unequalled process reproducibility. Over the last few years, the workshops for wax modelling and ceramic moulding have been entirely renovated and reorganised, radiographic inspection has changed to digital mode and the finishing workshop now has a semi-automatic system for removing refractory shells. The foundry, the heart of the factory, will be completely modernised and reorganised in 2018.
Since 1995, PRECIMETAL has had a unique system for managing its manufacturing flows by robotics. This system was modernised in 2015 and supplemented by an ultra-modern sequence planning software unit.
PRECIMETAL has always improved quality and its organisation system, enabling it to obtain the appropriate certifications: since 1987: AQAP4 from NATO, then ISO 9002, which became ISO 9001, then Qualifas certification, which became AS/EN 9100 (Aerospace), and ISO 13485 (Medical) in 2017. These certifications have each time been renewed and improved as the standards concerned evolve.
PRECIMETAL has an integrated IT system that meets the requirements of the 21st century, based on the most modern technologies in the matter. The design office is also equipped with computer-assisted design workstations using 3-D techniques.
