The goal is to develop applied innovation projects with companies to respond to the requirement to bring the teaching staff up to date in terms of science and technology, promoting innovation both in small and medium-sized companies and in vocational training centres.

For this, in addition to the knowledge and experience of our teaching staff, we make the facilities and equipment of the vocational training centers available to companies.

Within this environment, the following projects have been developed.

Redesign and execution of programming of new machining parts

One of the lines of work in this company is the preparation and machining of parts of the mechanical industry, which, in the case of certain tests, are difficult to meet the requirements of the standard from the point of view of adjustments and measures. For this reason, the analysis of current machining strategies has been replaced by a rethink, with new parameterizations and applications.

Recycling of foundry waste

The aim of this project is to promote and facilitate the storage of waste and scum from the boiler in the vicinity of the workshop.

To this end, it has been necessary to devise, design, plan and manufacture a storage system that facilitates the handling of waste and scum in excess of discharges, creating a safer and more efficient environment for handling waste, ensuring the proper safety of workers and maintaining order and cleanliness, in accordance with risk prevention guidelines, as well as optimizing production times.

The solution has been to build a bucket with a metal structure consistent with the dimensions of the waste. It proposes the introduction of 4 vestiges of the same shape as waste, which is intended to be achieved by refractory cement.

Metallurgical study of special torch directed materials

In this boiler company, at the time of the torch correction of special materials, a study of the metallurgical transformation of the material was to be carried out in order to know the final metalographic characteristics of the material.

To this end, coupons or probetas were prepared and the examination procedure defined, and tests were carried out.

Consequently, knowledge has been acquired of the metallurgical trials of the material, and of the transformation of the properties of the materials.

Reproduction of the entire 3D machine on a paper machine

This company needed a physical element that reflected its product that could be useful for display in customers, markets, etc.

To do this, he needed the manufacture of a complete paper handling machine, but as it had to be portable and intelligible, we thought of the whole reproduction, on a vaina scale and with the help of various materials.

In order to do this, there was a problem of creating scale printing by procedural geometry, that is, automatic climbing of geometry did not work, so many pieces had to be redesigned and redimensioned, bearing in mind that a machine of about 20 meters, had to be reproduced in a meter and a half.

The materials used, some of them 3D printed polymers, some of them metallic.

Design and execution of special baking trays

This company, using perforated sheet metal, needed special trays to bake parts for its casting. These trays needed very precise measurements, and the overall design had to be very tight.

To this end, after studying the needs, we completed the work by designing the pieces, and then executing the defining pieces, which proved to be good in the prototype.

The White Room Organization

In this company has been replanned, starting with the methodology of Lean, the organization of the fluids of workplaces, warehouses and materials of the White Classroom, with the end to achieve the comfort of the workers and the rentability of the process.

For this purpose, has made an analysis of the need and a analysis of the different data. And they have proposed changes based on the data of the work, such as the analysis of the data of the ERP of the company, the classification of ABC, the analysis of fluids, the mensual productions, the productivities, the list of material BOM references...

Diagnosis of energy efficiency of a company

A diagnosis has been made of the energy efficiency of this company, analysing the electricity aspect. To this end, an inventory of receivers, an analysis of consumption and a proposal for improvement have been made.

The theoretical and practical application of RITE

A project based on the preparation of technical consultancy and the interpretation and organization of the assembly strategy for the staff of a Gipuzkoa company. To this end, the identification of the differences between the new and the old regulations and their theoretical and practical application. In view of the scope of the work, the conditions which the Regulations on Thermal Installations in Buildings (RITE) must meet in order to meet the demand for thermal well-being and hygiene have been implemented in order to achieve adequate construction of heating, air conditioning and sanitary hot water facilities.

Vacuum boxes for a manufacturing process

In order to work in the clean room of a company, special "vacuum" boxes are needed. For that purpose, they have been designed and manufactured in Tolosaldea using a specific geometry; and after choosing the appropriate material, they have been manufactured in specific dimensions.

Design and manufacture of suspension fork protection parts for mountain bikes in 3D printed polymer

Due to its use, the material must be hard, and it cannot be fragile. In addition, the measurement adjustment must be very precise. To do this, analysing the use, taking measurements, thinking of a design, building parts, testing them and making adjustments in size and design until the right design is reached.
