Activity description


Post-processing of MAM components by chemical, electrochemical and/or mechanical processes.
CIDETEC has laboratory scale and semi-industrial scale facilities to provide MAM components with the required quality and or functionalities:
•        Surface roughness reduction
•        High brightness
•        Stress relieve
•        Improvement of fatigue behaviour
•        Improvement of corrosion behaviour
•        Etc.
For this purpose CIDETEC works on the next subjects:
•        The optimization of post processing parameters at laboratory scale to meet aesthetic and functional properties.
•        Definition of up-scaling parameters for the chemical, electrochemical and/or mechanical treatments to process industrial components produced by MAM technologies.
•        Surface characterization (chemical, microstructural, morphological mechanical and corrosion) and validation of the components.
CIDETEC has developed the E-blasting process,
a combination between an electrochemical and a mechanical process that produces flat surfaces with high gloss.
