Mission

 

As a research oriented enterprise, far-seeing technological development, versatility and immedate response to social and economic changes have particular importance for us.
It is our conviction that sustainable economy  posses great possibilities, but its success based on the continuous improvement of processes and products. The integration of research and development and manufacturing processes assures this versatility, and makes possible the production of tailored products for customers.

Social, environmental and economic aspects have equal importance during our business decisions. The reciclability potential of our products, their energy-efficient production method, the increase of the European competitiveness and the close up of disadvantageous regions are all important factors in our mind.

Aluinvent’s long-term objective is to help reviving the aluminium industry of Hungary, at the same time also contributing to doubling the current economic performance of the sector. At the moment Hungary produces 1 percent of the world’s aluminium output. The goal of Aluinvent is to increase this ratio to 2 percent and by this to create a considerable number of new workplaces in the near future, especially in Miskolc and its surroundings.

The most important product of Aluinvent is the ALUHAB which is a lightened variant of aluminium. As a result of our scientists and engineering team the ALUHAB preserved the easy workability and recyclability of aluminium, but at the same time it opens up new areas of use in several industrial fields (machine engineering, automotive industry, aviation industry, space technology, defence industry, building and construction, information technology, interior design, applied arts), offering an alternative solution for substituting various plastics and wood.

 

 

 

Our company

 

Aluinvent Zrt. was established in 2012. As a Hungarian start-up company its major goal to develop and manufacture of high strength aluminium foams and aluminium matrix composites on the basis of our own developed innovative technology which is not just Hungarian but worldwide patented.

Our R&D&I team which includes experts is committed to inovation and seeking the possibilites of network collaborations in order to fulfil the continuously changing  partner demands and knowledge transfer.

All members of our research and development group are graduated as chemical, matarials, metallurgical, informatics or electrical engineer, who has professional knowledge of materials and equipment development and are able to carry through the innovation process from the idea to the finished product.  It means that the team has the competence to realize all the TRL levels.

Our purpose is to serve a new aluminium based material which is produced by  an environmentally-friendly and energy-saving technology for constructors, designers and artists and provide for industrial manufacturing, construction, equipment goods, mobility and defence. With this our aim is to contribute to the dynamic growing of the Hungarian aluminium industry and sustainable economy.

 

 

Management

Dr. Norbert Babcsán
CEO

 

has 12 years of experience in the field of metal foam and its application development as demonstrated by more than 20 scientific articles and book chapters. He spent 5 years in Western Europe at the best laboratories in Austria (LKR and TU-Vienna) and Germany (Helmholtz Centrum Berlin) on metal foam research and one year at NASA MSFC on space furnace testing. His PhD thesis (2003) covered the Austrian METCOMB aluminum foam development carried out at University of Miskolc and Vienna University of Technology. His research field concerned the area of the perfection of gas injection method, the effect of gas composition on foam quality and stability, the role of stabilizing particles during foaming, and the study of metal foam stability and evolution by ex-situ, or in-situ methods. He is the holder of 8 metal foam related patents.

Gergely Sántha MBA

previously worked for the commercial banking sector and for several private investment holdings in Hungary. Apart from his role in long term financial planning and strategy shaping of Aluinvent, he uses his widespread business network to introduce and promote Aluinvent and “ALUHAB” to the major industrial players, mainly in the construction and automotive companies in the CEE region.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Social responsibility

 

For our company, social responsibility means responsible operating, responsible employment, and taking active participation in local communities with especial regard to initiatives wich focus on attainment of new skills, youth, local developments and social integrity. In this spirit we regularly give lectures about our results for the students of University of Miskolc, and we assure internship possibilities to them in order to acquire the necessary practical knowledge. Furthermore we hold consultation for postgraduate students. In addition, we are a main sponsor of the DVTK ladies basketball and its supply team of Diosgyor. Responsibility also means ethical conduct, and mitigating our environmental impact, while our goal is to integrate the principles of truly responsible and sustainable operations into all levels of company operation.
