The WEL Research Institute supports strategic research through programmes emanating from the universities of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation. Our departments are:
Dans les applications aéronautiques et spatiales les besoins en régulation de température augmentent (avion plus électrique, satellites grandissants) et les systèmes actuels de régulation atteignent leurs limites.
MPL2030 vise l’étude et le développement d’un système de transfert de chaleur encore nouveau dans ces domaines d’application : la boucle diphasique à pompage mécanique (MPL diphasique).
Les systèmes diphasiques de transfert de chaleur, les meilleurs en termes de performances, ne sont pas encore utilisés dans l’aéronautique.
Potential of cryogenic valve and space exchanger technologies applied to an aircraft H2 fuel system environment.
Production of surface structures (called riblet) on aerodynamic system parts, allowing a reduction of drag.
Sichem stands out by offering high-quality coatings that meet the specific requirements of its customers in terms of wear resistance, adhesion, and durability. The company invests in research and development of new technologies to stay at the forefront of innovation. Close collaboration with customers enables expert advice to be offered to meet the specific needs of each client.
ID works together with its affiliate Desimone to offer a wide range of services to our industrial customers. We have a vast experience in R&D and innovation programs, that allow us to support you at a very early stage of the conception of an automated production system, including most industry 4.0 technologies.
One of our key specialties is the full automation of Quality Control and NDT processes, mastering techniques such as Eddy Current, industrial vision, contactless metrology, etc and integrating them in custom made machines.
The highly skilled team of engineers benefits from the Japanese group's long experience and advanced equipment while offering young startup flexibility, reactivity, and creativity.

- A full range of broadcast and telematics antenna products.
We provide our antenna products on glass, modules, and other materials.
SABCA Technologies is the new subsidiary of SABCA, the Belgian flagship of the aerospace industry, set up at the end of the year 2022 and located Louvain-la-Neuve.
SABCA Technologies is dedicated to the design and the manufacturing of actuation systems for the future, targeting aerospace, drones and defense applications making use of New Space approaches.
These new facilities will be used to validate breakthrough innovations in order to meet the major environmental challenges and requirements of tomorrow’s aviation industry.
Covering a wide range of low and high-pressure compressor requirements, BeCOVER will have exceptional technical capabilities, including a closed air-loop system, making it possible to test turbomachine components under conditions at altitude and on the ground.
•Pin-on-disk tests in gaseous and liquid environments (N2, O2, H2, He)
•Impact tests for material compatibility (LOx)
•Auto-ignition tests in Gox (120 bars , up to 500°C)
•Adiabatic compression test up to 1000 bars
•High cycling fatigue under cryogenic conditions (update for 2022)
