“The choice for the Campus was not a coincidence."

Nov 9, 2016 1:51:03 PM. By: High Tech Campus

September 2016 REM Surface Engineering landed on the High Tech Campus Eindhoven. The company, with its headquarters in Connecticut, USA, wanted to have a foothold on Europe’s mainland to be able to service customers better and build its business.

With its patented metal surface treatment it provides an interesting service for OEMs and TIER-1 in mechanical industries such as Wind Turbines, Aerospace & Defence, heavy duty commercial vehicles and increasingly, additive manufacturing.

The power of non-directional polish
Business Developer at REM, Tim Renes: “The choice for High Tech Campus Eindhoven was not a coincidence. It suits our profile and one of our directors got to know the area well while working with ASML. I think this is an excellent place to build our business and a highly stimulating environment to work in.”

REM Surface Engineering started in 1965 in the USA. Over the years it developed a technology called Isotropic Super Finishing (ISF®), a patented process for polishing metal surfaces such as alloyed steels, stainless steels and Titanium. Tim Renes: “We use a combination of mechanical techniques, media in the form of ceramic parts and chemical treatment to remove asperities (microscopic peaks and valleys) on metal surfaces. Our process results in a non-directional smooth finish and this offers advantages such as: minimum frictional resistance, high corrosion resistance and extended life of parts. Our treatment finds application in all kind of areas like gearboxes for wind turbines, cars and defense equipment, as well as for Turbine Engine components.”

REM is continuously developing its expertise and business. Tim Renes: “We have our own lab in Texas. Currently we are developing processes for additive manufacturing. 3D printers are increasingly interesting for producing metal parts in small series. However, these 3D printed objects tend to have rough surfaces. With our technology we can provide interesting finishing services for additive manufacturers. Furthermore I am not excluding partnerships with Campus companies as well.”
