Further information

ITECAM is located in an industrial area called "Los Viñedos" in Tomelloso where there is a space of 600 m2 for offices and laboratories and a space of 700 m2 for industrial activities. ITECAM provides a bridge between academia and industry, traditionally distant, offering technological services, qualified training adapted and working in the development of R&D&I projects. All this is possible due to our human resource capacity of R&D&i and appropriate infrastructure and technological resources (laboratories of the last technology).

Currently, ITECAM has six laboratories, which are: Materials Laboratory, Precision Dimensional Metrology Laboratory, Climate Test Laboratory, Rapid Prototyping Laboratory, Non-Destructive The Materials Joined Test Laboratory and Laboratory Tests Absorption and Sound Insulation.

All these enabling:

  • Study of materials: Analysis of material and their different methods of joining (weldings, rivets, screw joints, adhesion, chemical melting of composite materials,…), which represents a fundamental research line in the optimization of the use of metallic material in several applications.
  • Simulations of material and the material joined by numerical methods, as well as computational fluid mechanics (CFD) processes. The experimental research is complemented by numerical techniques such as finite elements.
  • Developing large-volume experimental tests subject adverse climatic conditions in order to know their behavior with respect to similar conditions of real scenario.

Also, Itecam offers to the companies the management and development of R+D+I projects in the regional, national and European level (H2020) for the implementation of innovative business initiatives, which complement our capabilities to deliver comprehensive solutions. To do this, we have a multidisciplinary team of professionals that make up working groups based on needs and results to be obtained for each project. In Itecam, knowledge transfer and generation of talent is a key objective because it directly affects the capabilities of businesses and the competitive development of the same. The actions of this unit are carried out in different areas and under the DUAL philosophy to combine knowledge with high rate of recruitment.
