    • Commercial software
    • Conventional and induction thermal treatment laboratory
    • Equipment for the simulations of thermo-mechanical processes
    • Metallurgical models
    • NDT sensors

    SERVICES OFFERED BY THE ASSET

    Hybrid models for the material and process

    Development of hybrid models for the material and process that combines metallurgical models with data arising from heterogeneous sources (industrial practice, sensors, mechanical testing, etc) for optimizing the robustness of the process and achieving more consistent properties. These models will be applied on-line to control the process. Oriented to the steel sector, in the production and transformation as well as conventional and induction thermal treatments.

    Material monitoring

    Analysis and interpretation of the monitoring signals (sensorics) based on the metallurgical knowledge as the way to assess the state of the material in some processing stages or in-service behavior. Quality control of the product. Oriented to the steel sector, in the production and transformation as well as thermal treatments. Also for service behavior and monitoring of remaining life.

    Metallurgical models of the material

    Metallurgical models that aims at predicting the evolution of the material through all the hot working process or thermal treatment and final mechanical properties of the material. Oriented to the steel sector, in hot forming processes as well as thermal treatments.

    Simulations of the thermo-mechanical processes

    Simulation of the industrial process through lab equipment that allows analyzing relevant aspects such as the ductility of the material, the processing windows, the choice of the optimized sequence or the limitations of the material. Oriented to the steel sector, in the production and transformation as well as thermal treatments.
