RM History

     In 2004 Dr Haiping Cao, at the time a PhD student at the School of Engineering/Jönköping University, examined the effect of enthalpy exchange in an aluminium melt. The result, a perfect slurry, was the start of RheoMetal as a company.
     After researching the process and securing of the world-patent, Dr. Cao and Dr. Wessen established and registered RheoMetal AB in 2005. During 2006, most of their efforts were spent on further research and development of the process. RheoMetal was also funded and key employees were hired.
     In January 2007, we initiated our marketing and sales activities. The very first Rapid S machine was sold in March, followed by 5 more sales during the year. By the end of 2007, the Rapid S technology started selling outside Sweden and Scandinavia. RheoMetal had entered the world market.
