Norimat was created in 2016 after 15 years of R&D developing and optimizing the FAST/SPS process within the CIRIMAT, a French academic laboratory specialized in materials science based in Toulouse University. NORIMAT integrates the expertise of one of the most experimented research teams in Europe about FAST/SPS.
In 2015, Norimat joined the business incubator Midi-Pyrénées and then the Challenge + formation of HEC (2016) and the company won the French Tech grant from BPI. In January 2017, the company started being hosted by the CEA Tech Occitanie in order to boost its R&D programs and the industrialization of its unique technology. Norimat is also a member of the Aerospace Valley competitiveness cluster and the French Ceramic cluster.
Innovation is the heartbeat of Norimat, which is why most of our team is composed of PhDs and engineers specialized in materials science and computational mechanics, and why the company boasts 7 different patents. NORIMAT shares its expertise and its thirst to innovate with OEM’s and SME’s alike, across all advanced industries demanding the integration of new custom, high performance materials into the applications of tomorrow.
Norimat is also the creator of the Engemini Field Assisted Sintering Technology, Spark Plasma Sintering (FAST/SPS) simulation tool. Our model enables all Field Assisted Sintering Technology, Spark Plasma Sintering (FAST/SPS) users to perform digital experimentation to determine the thermal and mechanical evolution of parts and graphite molds during the physical sintering process.
