Since it was founded in 1947, the Société d'Application du Métal Rouge has been specialised in applying, by centrifugation, anti-friction metals and in the precision forming of guiding or sealing parts.

It makes joints, bearing liners, flanges, sealing rings, sliding blocks and bearing pads.  The company successfully created a stable alloy of two immiscible materials and the process of centrifugally casting antifriction metal linings. It created the casting technique by centrifugation for two-metal bearing liners. The company exclusively makes bearing lines with anti-friction metals based on copper or tin alloys. It expertly controls rotation speed, the temperature of the tubs, rotation time and cooling time.  The company sells its products in the automobile, industrial and aeronautical sectors. It also carries out assessments for customers and maintains hydro-dynamic bearings on demand.
