IK4-TEKNIKER´S offer for the automotive sector encompasses the following areas:

ADVANCED MANUFACTURING

Development or optimisation of new or existing processes based on a comprehensive approach that covers the process itself, production resources, automation and plant management actions in an Industry 4.0 environment.

  • Development of laser and high-performance machining processes such as ecological machining with new lubricants; the machining of materials that are hard to work with; dimensional control and on-site inspection; additive manufacturing and metallic fillers based on laser deposition techniques; direct and selective heat treatment by means of laser; on-line production monitoring.
  • Automation, robotics, artificial vision, mobile platforms, robot-person collaboration, bin picking (a proprietary technology).
  • Industrial production management (productive models, lean manufacturing, use of ICTs at plants).

 

COMPONENT SURFACE MODIFICATION

The modification of component surfaces to achieve new functionalities, aesthetics or improved properties.

  • Multi-technological approach (PVD, Laser, PEO, Sol Gel, NIL) for plastic and metal components.
  • Anti-wear, anti-reflective, absortive and decorative coatings.
  • Development of film according to customer needs.
  • Concept, pre-series, trials and validation testing.
  • Development of the necessary processes and equipment.
  • Support for industrialisation.

 

DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTRONIC AND COMMUNICATION PRODUCTS

The development of products using a holistic approach, ranging from the initial idea until pre-industrial design and production counselling stages.

  • Electronics (hardware): developing control and communication ECUs.
  • Functional models and models for checking.
  • Sensor network applications and development of sensors (optical, magnetic and ultrasound techniques).
  • “Plug & Play & Forget”® systems and power harvesting systems.


DEVELOPMENT OF PRODUCTION AND TEST BENCHES

The development of production and testing equipment according to customer specifications and commissioning.

  • Design and assembly of custom-made test benches: test benches for components (transmissions, ball joints, brakes, bearings, seats, etc.) and test benches addressing mould thermal fatigue.
  • Design and assembly of machines for advanced manufacturing processes.


ELECTROMOBILITY

  • Design, manufacture and testing of new configurations for electric motors.
  • Development of ad hoc power electronics equipment.
  • Development of ECUs and control units.
  • Design and development of integrated mechatronic components (roborueda).


ADVANCED SERVICES

  • Inspection and measurement: equipment calibration, checking and compensation.
  • Diagnosis of component failure causes.
  • Behavioural checks for mechanical components when in use.
