Spain: Andalusia


The Technology Centre of Metal-mechanical and Transport (CETEMET) is a non-profit foundation. The centre is managed by a private foundation made up by 20 entities including companies in the metal-mechanical and transport sectors, public bodies, savings banks, universities and business associations. Our mission is to strengthen our role as a technology, smart business and advance infrastructure centre, performing as an accelerator within competitive sectors in the metal-mechanical and transport industries in Andalusia.

CETEMET aims at fostering economic development in Andalusia by means of promoting and improving innovation in companies within the metal-mechanical and transport industries. The centre focuses on promotion and technology development in two core ideas: technology services and R&D&i projects.

The centre has focused on Industry 4.0 for Metal-mechanic and Transport sectors through these 4 technological areas:

Industrial automation. We use computerized and electro-mechanical components … CETEMET possesses a Visual computing lab, Automation and Robotics equipment and software, Metrology lab, Climate tests lab, and design, modelling, programming and FEM software.

The equipment of Visual computing labs comprises 3D scanners, cams, and devices for VR/AR such as glasses, tablets, etc. 

The automation and robotics equipment is composed of PLCs, robots, electronics, artificial vision cams, scanners, etc., and software for programming and simulation

The Metrology lab is composed of a high accuracy 3D laser scanner, torque wrenches calibration unit, dial gauge calibration units, linear, angle and flatness gauge blocks, roundness tester measuring shapes-position and other specialized metrology instruments. 

The Climate testing equipment and facilities comprise climate simulation chamber of large dimensions, climate chambers, thermographic camera and HFM.

Regarding to Design and FEM equipment, CETEMET has many workstations and CAD software licenses for mechanical and electrical design,…. CETEMET has the capacity to develop R&D&i projects and to offer services in the next technological areas:
