Multifunctional surfaces at the frontier of knowledge


Aim of the Project

The aim of this project is twofold: on the one hand, to generate cutting-edge scientific-technological knowledge in the field of surfaces and surface treatment technologies. On the other hand, to resolve some of the main strategic challenges identified in the field of surfaces, with a medium-long term vision towards digitised surfaces as a key factor of competitiveness in the driving industrial sectors of the BAC.


Role of Vicomtech

It has brought its expertise in Industry 4.0 and Artificial Intelligence to enable partners to digitise their design, engineering and surface treatment processes to optimise them.


Technologies used

  • Python
  • Clustering
  • Robotics
  • Data Analytics
  • Visual Analytics


Field of application

A clustering system has been developed to identify corrosion mechanisms, a system for analysing data from the design of surface treatment experiments and a tool consisting of a robotic arm and a camera to detect the degree of support removal from addictive manufacturing parts.
