Our added value  

A long history offering the best support to companies in the steel sector supports us. Our researchers carry out projects aimed at expanding knowledge, promoting technical advances and process improvements that contribute to obtaining more advanced products in a more sustainable way.

Our research lines  

  • New processing routes and improvements in processing sequences for flat and long products, tubes, forged pieces, etc.

  • Semi-finished products, thin slab casting, direct rolling.

  • Improvements to heat and thermomechanical treatments and new solutions based on them.

  • Composition optimization.

  • Zero-defect production.

  • Designed-to-order alloys with improvements to specific properties.

  • New ranges of high-strength steels.

  • Advanced microalloyed steels.

In addition, the research carried out by the area contributes to the training of young researchers. The result obtained in these fundamentally basic research projects represents the starting point for solving specific problems posed in the more complex projects that our clients send us.


The basic research carried out by the Group over the past six years is defined by the following projects:
