The R&D department is made up of a multidisciplinary team of engineers with extensive knowledge in each one of the key areas to develop the next generation of stamping lines.

These are the main projects in which the R&D department operates:

  • Energy Efficiency: Reduction of energy consumption.

  • Thermography: Quality control of parts and maintenance of dies.
  • Monitoring: Real-time analysis of the lines. Preventive and predictive maintenance.

In addition to having access to the latest hardware and software tools on the market, the R&D department has a press in which new control strategies are tested, new sensors are evaluated or last cutting-edge technologies are validated before that it can be implemented into clients presses.
