Mafex participates in a new innovation project called EPROMAT

MAFEX is part of a new innovation project called EPROMAT. The project is developed with support for the Business R&D of the Basque Government HAZITEK 2020 programme and it consists of a consortium of 9 industrial partners, 1 cluster, and 2 agents from the Basque Science, Technology and Innovation Network (RVCTI), led by the company Polikea, a manufacturer of components and complete modules for the railway and shipping industry.

Its objective is the development of a new High Efficiency Composite Manufacturing Cell in Productivity and Materials and it will be based on advanced and intelligent organizational models for the automation of large composite manufacturing processes.

The EPROMAT project is fully aligned with the Advanced Manufacturing priority, seeking the development of manufacturing technologies that translate into new products, both for project participants, as well as for Basque companies manufacturing high added value components, machines and products from sectors driving the Basque economy such as aeronautics, automotive, energy, railway or capital goods.
