Smart manufacturing based on the knowledge of processes

Technological areas

At Lortek we generate an excellent knowledge of Manufacturing Processes and their digitization. We are specialized in joining technologies and metal additive manufacturing. We work to achieve technological development in industry, we transfer knowledge to the industrial network, and thus, we improve competitiveness and sustainability.

Joining technologies

Joining technologies

Joining technologies are essential to manufacture many components and structures, varying from high responsibility parts to simpler products, as they directly affect their quality, durability, aspect, and manufacturing costs.

Metal additive manufacturing

Metal additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is a concept that covers many technologies, based on the simple idea of converting a digital model into a solid three-dimensional object.

Non-destructive digital inspection

Non-destructive digital inspection

We have developed a series of data-driven technologies to take product inspection to a new level, affording different non-destructive inspection solutions for sectors that have high quality demands due to their high safety commitment, in sectors such as Automobile, Capital Goods, Aeronautics, oil & gas, etc.

Digital intelligence in processes

Digital intelligence in processes

Our intelligent manufacturing is based on combining digital enablers, such as artificial intelligence, IIoT, cooperative robotics, adaptive control, artificial vision, and in general, a data-driven approach to additive manufacturing and joining technologies, with an in-depth knowledge of materials, extensive research experience, and a detailed knowledge of joining and additive manufacturing processes; i.e., a sum of ‘intelligences’.
