Description of activities

The Powder Technology Group comprises a multi-disciplinary team of experts in developing solutions in the field of Powder Technology / Powder Metallurgy. Our facilities have advanced equipment to handle all kinds of studies and analyses related to metallic, ceramic, and composite materials.

We have proven experience offering integral R+D services, consulting, technical assistance, and individualized training to optimize manufacturing processes for materials via Powder Technology / Powder Metallurgy, studying the behaviour of materials in service, and characterizing and designing new materials with improved features and high added value.

We participate actively in and have been recognized by international forums of unquestionable prestige that serve as references for companies in this sector, such as EPMA, the European Powder Metallurgy Association, and its American counterparts, MPIF–Metal Powder Industrial Federation, APMI–American Powder Metallurgy Institute and ASM–A Society for Materials.
