Technological developments and transferring products

Integration and adaptation of specific technologies and tools for metallic transformation companies.

See developments +

With a clear market orientation, the challenges of foundry, forging, stamping and rolling industries, and their client sectors, define our lines of research and action.

Our research work is oriented towards the development of disruptive technologies that enable the competitive improvement of companies that design, manufacture and use metallic components.

We team up with our client companies to develop new knowledge and implement new technologies within the organization and its processes.

Applied research
R&D to serve industrial challenges. Development of solutions and technologies (up to TRL7) to improve performance, eco-innovation or to search for new fields of application.

Re·Thinking Metallurgy

«Our work is aimed at mastering the physics and the chemistry that govern the behavior of metallic alloys, the phenomena that take place during manufacturing processes and the conditions that affect the useful life of metallic components.

We rethink metallurgy to develop more effective, efficient and sustainable manufacturing processes that favor the manufacture of components with enhanced properties and that open up new fields of application».
