DBM Technology of France will attend Farnborough International Airshow (England) from 9 to 15 July 2012. The company, which is a specialist in insulation and high-temperature thermal protection for engines, aeronautic equipment and special industrial applications, has recently established itself in the UK.
“Our activity is aimed at a niche [market] in the aeronautic and industrial world, to which we owe our good start and our consequent partnerships with, and privileged support from, Airbus and EADS Development,” explains Alain Mounier, Director General of DBM Technology.
Established in 2005, DBM Technology specialises in insulation at (and thermal protection against) high temperatures. Having worked with over 100 clients, DBM Technology has been intensifying its export efforts. In recent years, DBM has experienced an annual growth rate of 20% to 40%. In 2012, the company established itself in England and Canada and will be exhibiting (Hall 1, Stand 22) at Farnborough International Airshow (in Farnborough, in the south of England) from 9 to 15 July of this year.
DBM’s products are designed for use in aeronautics, but also in engineering, more generally. Its aerospace-related clients include Airbus, Aircelle, Bombardier, Eurocopter, Liebherr-Aerospace, and Snecma.
DBM designs and manufactures a range of products which conform to international aeronautical standards, notably the FAR25.856(a) standard, which certifies materials and equipment in terms of fire propagation and extinguishing times, and the DO-160 environmental standard.
DBM’s product range includes high-performance, rigid thermal-protection items, which are resistant to a temperature of up to 1,200°C. The company also fabricates supple thermal and acoustic high-performing insulation mattresses that protect against temperatures of up to 1,400°C; complex supple or rigid insulating fire screens, enclosed by sheets made from leaves of heat-resistant stainless steel or other incombustible materials; and, finally, rigid high-temperature insulating and heating shells that are resistant to continuous temperatures of up to 1,000°C.
These innovative solutions are designed for different industrial fields, including aeronautics and space, where DBM provides products for different applications. The company’s supple thermal insulation products are used for air-treatment systems (such as in piping, exchangers, valves and ozone converters), and its fire screens are integrated into batteries and engines.
Additionally, DBM produces thermal insulation for aeroplane and helicopter engines: thermal screens in 0.1mm-thick heat-resistant stainless steel embossed with insulating encapsulation, along with innovative extra-light and supple thermal screens made from polyimide foam encapsulated in Viton, which are designed to be composite items.
In order to manufacture its thermal screens, DBM’s production site uses special machines to assemble the coating material, the silica-powder or glass-fibre-based insulating material, the polyimide foam and the heat-resistant stainless-steel leaves. DBM uses machines for sheet-metal embossing, for laser cutting, and for the micro-welding of electric-resistance-welded sheet metal; DBM also has insulator-cutting press bridges in its workshop.
“We either use subcontractors, mechanical- and thermal-research consultancies and specialists in composites fabrication, or we undertake prototyping for model creation at exceedingly short notice ourselves,” explains Alain Mounier.
DBM also produces equipment for the railway sector, including high-temperature thermal insulation solutions for diesel locomotive exhausts. Furthermore, the company makes mechanical shovels (JCB is a client in the UK), wheeled mining equipment, military vehicles, tractors and buses.
Finally, DBM is a recognised player in the world of endurance-competition vehicles and Formula 1, with clients such as M-Sport (in the UK) and Renault Sport F1 (in France).
