Technology consulting on issues raised by companies relating to their production process. In addition, technical audits in which the work methodologies in the different sections and laboratories of the production process are evaluated to detect company strengths and weaknesses and to draw up an improvement plan to resolve the detected problems.
Improved performance in the different production process stages (milling, pressing, extrusion, slip casting, drying, decoration, and firing). Remedying manufacturing defects (fractures, cracks, curvatures, surface defects, etc.).
Continuous measurement, monitoring, and analysis of industrial variables (density, moisture content, thermal cycles, temperature differences in kilns and dryers, surface thermography, etc.) and automatic control of different manufacturing stages.
Design and construction of industrial equipment (scanner for non-destructive measurement of tile bulk density distribution, powder friction feeder in pre-formers, continuous kiln for curing brake pads, etc.). Design of facilities (silos) for handling particulate solids (avoiding arching and segregation).
Prediction of process operation and virtual prototyping of new equipment. Simulation of systems in various scenarios and analysis of possible changes and their consequences. Applicable to equipment and processes for forming, drying, inkjet printing, baking, polishing, etc.
600 m2 of facilities and equipment for pre-industrial assessment of improvements in materials and compositions, and optimisation of manufacturing processes, aimed at verifying the feasibility of their implementation, minimising any reduction in production capacity.
Consultancy services and development of projects for ceramics manufacture by additive manufacturing, colloquially known as 3D printing.
Adjusting materials, modelling, adaptation, and configuration of the design for the available techniques.
Implementation of projects for transformation towards Industry 4.0. Consultancy services and accompaniment from the earliest stages, in which companies need to analyse their processes and infrastructures to assure data collection, to the most advanced stages, in which the use of tools and advanced systems enables information to be generated that will help improving and automating decision-making processes.
