The Structural Integrity, Micromechanics and Materials Reliability Centre (CIEFMA UPC) worked with the company ROVALMA on the development of new technologies to improve the balance between efficiency and cost in hot stamping of high-strength steels, which are used to produce parts for the manufacture of vehicles that are lighter and safer.



The project is being carried out within the framework of the EUROSTARS-2programme and is part of a wider collaboration encompassing several projects.

ROVALMA S.A. is a leading technology company in the design and development of high-performance steels and other special alloys for high performance technological applications in industry, specifically in tooling and the construction of machinery and equipment. The company’s three main areas of activity are application engineering (the study of practical applications for ROVALMA’s steel products), materials development (the formulation and development of new products), and production process engineering (the development of steel manufacturing processes).
