welcome to Aalberts surface technologies

surface technology by world-leading experts

mission-critical heat and surface treatments

Aalberts surface technologies is the leading global surface technology service provider for improving material in terms of coatings and other surface technologies such as heat treatment for regional and global customers.

We have been coating and heat treating components for different industries such as the automotive industry, mechnical engineering or medical technology and can rely on a know-how of more than 80 years. We are specialised in heat treatments, surface treatments, polymer coatings, brazing, additive manufacturing and post processing.

Aalberts surface technologies conglomerates five different divisions.

While the heat treatment division includes hardening shops, that offer a wide variaty of processes such as vacuum hardening, carbonitriding and hydrogen annealing. The surface treatment division includes the galvanic surface treatment of individual components including surface coating processes such as electroless nickel plating, electroplating, as well as hard anodizing and zinc flake coating

Polymer coatings are applied with common painting techniques and are mainly used as sliding and non-stick coatings.

Reel-2-reel is understood to mean the tape finishing of punched strips, taped pins or solid tapes.

The HIP | brazing | AM unit combines the technologies of hot isostatic pressing, brazing and additive manufacturing.

We operate a worldwide service network of more than 80 locations with mostly self-developed and patented surface technology processes, relying on more than 80 years of industry know-how.

Our strengths are the close, personal and solution-oriented dialogue with our customers, highly qualified and committed employees with many years of experience, the large variety of surface treatment processes and the worldwide orientation of our locations.
