The innovations of tomorrow made of aluminium

Promising material, promising future: At Speira we're driving innovations made of aluminium - and we've been doing it for many years! Together with our customers, we're creating solutions for a constantly evolving market and a sustainable industry. Aluminium is precisely the right material for this, because the product innovations of tomorrow are light, versatile and infinitely recyclable - just like our aluminium.

We challenge the future Our approach: We develop future-proof products jointly with our customers

The world is growing more and more disruptive. Advances in technology and in society are changing the products that make up our daily lives. This means new technical challenges are arising; ones that we face together with our customers. Starting with the product, we put the entire value creation chain in focus, in order to bring the ideal solutions for our customers and end consumers to life. We're always open to finding new paths.

Our customers get professional support from our team of experts, made up of engineers, chemists, market researchers, and commercial business specialists.  You too can benefit from our expertise. Let's work together to develop tailor-made solutions for a successful future.

Successful together Creating sustainable solutions

The increasing complexity in technical products and their even quicker development cycles are challenges best faced as a team. That's why we work with partners from universities, start-ups and industry to find the ideal solution for the specific issue quickly and efficiently. We bring all of this expertise to bear on your business and support the implementation of your ideas.

From start-ups to large-scale projects

With its incomparable possibilities for shaping forms, aluminium unleashes the creativity of designers and engineers alike. Add in its unique properties such as light weight, corrosion resistance, good conductivity, high rigidity and ease of recycling, and it's no wonder aluminium has become the preferred material in an increasing number of industries.

At Speira we're working every day to develop reliable solutions for a range of industries and to drive innovation forward. This isn't just about our own material solutions. It's also about the further use of the raw material after its actual useful life in a product.

Our research teams continuously support customers in business development and technical advancement around their products and processes - and are constantly widening the scope of aluminium's potential applications.

Progress through research Our material will continue to be the basis for many innovative products in the future

Aluminium is highly versatile and offers endless opportunities to create exciting new products that make the way we live more sustainable. That is inspiring not only to our partners and customers, but also to ourselves.

Our technical research teams ensure continuous technical advancement of the products and processes that are so very important to our customers. The experts work on innovations, are constantly questioning the status quo, and are continuously pushing the boundaries of aluminium applications.

Research and development in detail

Five pillars form the base of our research department: recycling, quality and productivity, sustainability, battery systems, automotive sheet.

Dedicated teams work effectively and efficiently with the methods of agile management to achieve our research goals. R&D also provides targeted support to the company's operating units in the development of innovative products and processes.

Our competencies cover the entire value chain from casting to the final semi-finished product as well as the causal relationships of the rolling process chain. In addition to a deep understanding of the mechanical and chemical properties, the insight into corrosion and surface properties also plays a major role. Our innovative and advance labs help to support the whole Innovation process. In connection with the current strategy, the partnerships with research institutes and universities and the associated concrete projects or teaching assignments remain of great importance.

Speira customers are supported by us in technical challenges to optimize their products regarding the required properties. We develop new alloys and semi-finished products, to offer new possibilities and be ahead of the market, together with our customers. We investigate the basics of our core processes as well as customer processes to reproduce them by means of modeling and simulations.

Our Research & Development department in Bonn has a test laboratory that is flexibly accredited in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 for the following test methods (D-PL-21383-01-00):
