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.
