Laboratory

Arteca Laboratorio

We have a fully equipped multidisciplinary laboratory. We evaluate materials, carry out chemical process controls and all types of tests on parts: static testing, dynamic testing, NVH tests, fatigue, ageing…

The New climatic chamber enables us to do most of these tests at temperatures of between -45º and 200ºC.

Development

Arteca

Development is a key element at ARTECA. The complete IN HOUSE realisation of the phase of prototypes enables us to offer the customer a solution to whatever problem may arise in a short period of time

Apart from the tailor made development of solutions for our customers, the team is responsible for the development of new applications, the introduction of new materials and the optimisation of the production process.

  • A team of 9 people for automotive development

  • Equipped for analysis with FEA and with tools developed by ARTECA

  • Complete materials, chemicals, mechanics and NVH laboratory
