    Research & Development

    FAVI has always considered R&D its priority . This is our largest department consisting of 31 engineers, technicians and draughtsmen.

    Typical projects are :

    • Researching and developing specific alloys, to meet new technical or economic constraints, customer specifications or simply to open up new markets.
    • Developing innovative technologies in product processing.
    • Developing and optimizing products and industrial processes, guarantees continuous improvement of product quality and economic performance.

    These innovations result from proactive meetings, listening to our partners at their centers of excellence e.g. technical centers, professional schools and universities.

    Product development

    As your industrial development Partner, our Design team proposes the optimization of your product, through die-casting, machining and assembling. All requirements and quality issues relating to the product and manufacturing process are taken into account, to guarantee top product preformance from Day 1 of production.

    Our Design office is experienced in the latest STATE OF THE ART Equipment :

    • CAD
    • Finite Elements Analysis
    • Rheology
    • Rapid prototyping in 3D, either machined from a block of the chosen metal, or from the initial samples.

    Product validation

    Our test laboratory validates products and materials :

    • Through material structural analysis and metallurgical testing.
    • Through physical static or dynamic testing,to validate product function and resistance.
    • Through specific bench testing on request.

    FAVI has been recognized in July 2015 as being able to carry out tests and provide results according to the car manufacturers’ required standards. This is known as ‘Self-Certification’.

  • Production


    Pressure die-casting has been our core industry for the last 60 years. Our technical expertise is used in the selection and implementation of brass, copper or aluminium alloys, depending on the technical and budget requirements.

    We are specialized in machining, surface treatment, assembling, and managing Tier-2 suppliers, which we have selected and validated.

    Rigourous in our quality manufacturing, whilst maintaining production schedules and delivery times.

    FAVI ‘s workforce is a dedicated, devoted, autonomous and responsible team, which is always at your service.

Metal and alloys

Depending on your technical specifications e.g robustness or the need to reduce the vehicle’s weight, we propose production in either brass or aluminium.



Our aluminium alloys meet weight reduction goals. They also offer good mechanical and physical characteristics and are equally hard wearing.


Copper alloys developed for automotive applications have as their dominant quality, excellent hard wearing resistance and high level mechanical and physical characteristics. Used in the 'shift forks for gearbox' applications, this dispenses with the need for anti-wear coatings or pad moldings.

Our 'mini-factory' organization

At FAVI, our challenge is to place our customers at the centre of attention for each one of our employees, who organize production in our autonomous and independant mini-factories. Each mini-factory is dedicated to one customer or product and piloted by a team leader. All back-up services, such as Sales, QC and maintenance are closely integrated to favour reactivity, proactivity and communication.
