|CATEC is a technology center that carries out its activity on related technologies for aerospace and factory of the future, like materials and processes, avionics and unmanned systems, automation and robotics, etc.
In the framework of Materials & Processes, the division features a wide variety of technologies for the development and design of aerospace components for additive manufacturing, including topology optimization for metal and polymer base fabrication technologies (SLM, SLS, FDM, …).
Furthermore, the division have a great potential for mechanical testing of components and structures, involving static and fatigue tests up to 4,000 KN, impact testing, modal analysis, digital image correlation for recording strains and 3D displacements, as well as altitude and HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing) environmental chambers.
