• A common system of continuous improvement of our productions and processes
• International certification of our processes (ISO 9001, EN 9100 & NADCAP)

V-SOLUTIONS


V-REFABV-WELDMILL
V-Solutions Refab With V-Refab, reproduce spare parts that cannot be found on the market, without tooling and in record time ! All we need is an OEM part, our reverse engineering resources and manufacturing processes will do the rest for you. Our partner Vint'air is your contact for the Vintage market, drawing on our expertise and industrial resources. V-Solutions Weldmill With V-Weldmill, combine mechanical welding with precision milling ! Our expertise is based on our mastery of tolerances and complex shapes, whatever the material, thanks to our experienced teams, who enjoy taking up your technical and industrial challenges.
V-MILLCASTV-HYBCAST
V-Solutions Millcast With V-Millcast, profit from the expertise of the only French group to master light alloy sand casting and the associated machining of very complex parts ! V-Millcast is also a guarantee of a solid, sustainable supply chain relying on 4 foundries and 2 machining plants backed by VENTANA's integrated organization.
V-Solutions V-Hybcast With V-Hybcast, discover a light alloy sand casting you have never seen before: development times as short as ALM (Additive Layer Manufacturing), production repeatability on a par with a CNC machine tool, sharply reduced non-recurrent costs (NRC), not to mention total design flexibility for your new products. In a nutshell, the V-Hybcast hybrid foundry has all the advantages of direct manufacturing, without the drawbacks (metallurgic and dimensional stability, lower cost and no size limitation) !

Innovations

COLLABORATIVE R&T PROJECTS

VENTANA is giving itself the means to achieve its innovation ambitions (innovation being one of three strategic aims of its Agile 2018 company project) by investing heavily in research to optimise its manufacturing processes and V-Solutions, in line with its CSR policy.


Innofab collaborative project

INNOFAB

Development of smart workstations and advanced measuring devices. This project will expand the use of digital tools whose virtual assistant will help operators in their daily tasks and training. The project will also help increase the appeal of the V-Weldmill and V-Millcast solutions. (CORAC's Aeronautical Factory of the Future platform)

Amande collaborative project

AMANDE

A study on the impact that the direct manufacturing process for magnesium alloy parts has on the operating performance of these parts. This project will provide VENTANA clients with assistance on the design of their products using V-solutions, particularly V-Hybcast, V-Millcast and V-Refab. (CORAC's Aeronautical Factory of the Future platform)

TRANFRON3D

This project will characterise and compare various additive manufacturing processes of high-performance alloys to incorporate them into our V- Weldmill and V-Refab V-Solutions. It will also help develop a cross-border network of French and Spanish industrial partners. (Poctefa European project)


Serious Game

A New Chance for Guidance

As part of the "Nouvelle Chance pour l'Orientation" (A New Chance for Guidance) scheme launched by the Aquitaine Regional Council, VENTANA helped to create, in collaboration with the Guynemer High School in Oloron, a convincing prototype developed by 2 microbusinesses from Aquitaine, namely Néomades in Bidart and Tikki Move in Bordeaux.

Thanks to the supervision of UIMM Adour Atlantique, the project then expanded to a nationwide app, encompassing several dozen casting, machining and soon mechanical welding jobs.

You too can download the NCO app and test your aptitude for these fascinating jobs, by doing a search on "NCO UIMM" from your App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).
