Research & Development

Every year, Fives Celes invests 10% of its annual turnover in research and development – innovation is the company's priority.

The company began in 1967 when induction heating technology was booming. Since then, it has endlessly striven to develop innovations that meet the latest industrial requirements in every sector where productivity and agile equipment are wholly dependent on the speed, precision and efficiency of induction.

A dedicated team achieves these goals with advanced skills in electromagnetics, electricity and cooling. It works tirelessly to improve existing equipment and develop new technologies and approaches.

These developments preempt what our industrial partners need in the future and Fives offers them solutions that provide flexibility and productivity as well as cost-effective equipment that can develop new processes and achieve high performance standards.

The R&D department routinely works with educational and research institutions as well as the R&D centers at major industrial contracting companies and electrical utilities like Arcelormittal and EDF. These working relationships have resulted in products distinguished for their energy performance and specially designed for the industrial environment, such as CELES CELINE (Compact ELectric INduction Equipment) and CELES EcoTransFluxTM, two prime examples of operational excellence.
