How we were involved

We have had the privilege of providing support services, including materials expertise, to DENSO Marston in pursuit of quality assurance, new product development and even greater competitive advantage.

Our extensive in-house characterisation and analysis capabilities helps clients, such as DENSO Marston, get to the root cause of material problems quickly. To give clients the very best value for money, we use our materials expertise and knowledge of end-use applications to interpret test results and provide sound, impartial recommendations.

Because we’re a group of aluminium specialists, we have expertise and practical experience in almost all aluminium products and processes. We’d be happy to come to your plant to investigate a problem in situ as well as carry out testing in our labs.

We also offer world class expertise in brazing technology and aluminium alloys for heat exchangers. We’re active in many stages of the automotive heat exchanger supply chain. This gives us a unique view of the industry, and we can supply information on market trends, new materials and processes, and new characterisation/testing techniques to keep you ahead of the competition.

Services Involved

  • Materials Testing
  • Heat Exchangers

Innoval’s services have been of great value to DENSO Marston, especially their in-depth and extensive knowledge of aluminium, its alloys and processing. This has been valuable both in general metallurgical investigations needed when our in-house capacity has become insufficient, and also with the more unusual problems and investigations that come along from time to time where brainstorming, a fresh mind and additional, more sophisticated testing has been required.
