Machining of parts for nuclear companies: call on SMEPI

Entrusting the machining of mechanical parts for the nuclear sector to professionals is the wisest option if you want to ensure the quality of the items and their compliance with your expectations. If you are looking for a trusted service provider, SMEPI has been designing and manufacturing mechanical safety, wear and fixing parts for the nuclear, rail, transport and petrochemical industries for many years.

The nuclear sector, a field of activity that requires maximum security

The nuclear sector is one of the areas in which caution is required both on sites and in what are called nuclear islands in laboratories using radioactive products. The handling of products at risk in these places must be carried out with the greatest caution, taking into account the real dangers for human and animal health, but also for the environment (air, water, soil). Machines used in production and storage facilities are also subject to strict safety standards.

Given the high degree of technicality required for the machining of mechanical parts intended for the nuclear sector , this operation must be entrusted to experts. Moreover, the manufacturing process and storage are subject to a specific code, the RCC-M code or Rules for the Design and Construction of Mechanical Equipment for the nuclear industry. Especially since only companies mastering this code are authorized to exercise this activity.

Entrusting the manufacture of the various components of nuclear installations to specialists is essential in order to avoid disasters. Each element will indeed have to be designed and produced to be adapted to difficult conditions of use. Regarding mechanical fastening, safety or wear parts, you can confidently turn to SMEPI for tailor-made tailoring. We have many years of experience and a good understanding of the constraints in a nuclear environment.  

The advantages of choosing SMEPI

The choice of the company which will take care of the machining of parts for the nuclear power is to be made with care. The objective is to ensure its skills and reliability, and to avoid unpleasant surprises as to the quality and performance of the items. For greater safety, it is recommended to only contact a recognized company, having a good reputation and which has official certifications attesting to its authorization to work for the nuclear sector.

With more than ten years of experience in the machining of metal parts, SMEPI holds an “ISO9001: 2008” certification. We make every effort to provide high quality services in machining work. Currently, we offer our service for many high-tech industry groups. This has enabled us to strengthen our professionalism, the competence of our team and our responsiveness. These have enabled us to rank among the leaders in the field of mechanical manufacturing by machining throughout Europe.

At SMEPI, we specialize in precision mechanics, in particular the manufacture of dowel parts and screws. For rail transport, petrochemical plants or even nuclear, our products are the result of precision machining, born of know-how of more than 10 years. To satisfy our customers, our services fully cover the machining process of the requested part. We control the production chain from end to end, from the purchase of the raw material to the actual production, without forgetting the tests and preliminary treatments (zinc plating, chromating, nickel plating, etc.), until the shipment of the product. Our parts are also manufactured in accordance with the plans and specifications of our customers.

Our field of intervention revolves around three main areas, namely rolled threading, deep drilling and spark erosion. Thanks to these advanced techniques, we design parts of exceptional quality that can withstand an extreme environment (very high temperatures, abrasion, corrosion, etc.). We have a constantly renewed stock of raw materials, which allows you to place your orders as quickly as possible.

Specialized precision parts for the nuclear industry

SMEPI notably manufactures parts by machining for the nuclear sector . This manufacturing technique meets the requirements of the nuclear industry. The parts produced in our factories are of course intended for restrictive conditions of use, in accordance with the Rules for the Design and Construction of Mechanical Equipment for Nuclear Islands of Pressurized Water Reactors (RCC-M). Note that the RCC-M defines three levels of characterization for parts intended for nuclear power. Our customers benefit from RCC-M quality monitoring for these three levels. Guarantors of the reliability of our nuclear equipment, we are also certified by the Pôle Nucléaire de Bourgogne, which brings together more than 180 players in the nuclear industry in France.
