To create a reference technological centre for the quality control, research and industry services.
Once the different areas are equipped and the specialists have been trained, the works and services which could be done will be very diverse and with a high value added for demanding customers. to the services provided by this centre, companies will improve their competitiveness reaching a superior quality level, allowing in this way the increasing of their market and therefore their benefits.
It could assume the responsibilities to serve as Reference Laboratory regarding the quality standards and specifications to be established in a country or region. It will develop all the duties related with these goals as independent organism to verify, inspect and certificate.
The services could be extended to the consultancy during the quality process implementation, Total Quality Systems, becoming this way in the main support of companies belonging to any of the three economical activity sectors The main fields of activity of this centre regarding technological advising, inspection and control would be:
DESTRUCTIVE TESTING - Materials Tension and compression with controlled temperature (-70ºC to 900ºC) - Hardness Brinell, Rockwell , Shore, other scales - Bending and folding - Fatigue - Creep - Impact
METALOGRAPHY - Optical microscopy with image analysis software - Microhardness: Vickers and Knoop
ENVIRONMENTAL MATERIAL TESTING - Saline Fog - Kesternich - UV, Xenotest - Temperature-Humidity - Thermal Shock - Cyclical test
NON DESTRUCTIVE TESTING - Ultrasounds - X ray Testing - Foucault currents - Magnetic Particles - Coating thickness measurement - Penetrant Liquids - Residual Tension
ELECTRON MICROSCOPY - Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) - EDAX probe elemental analysis - Failures and corrosion analysis
- Quality control and adulteration detection via molecular biology tests (DNA) - Microbial Identification and recount (coliform, enterobacterias, streptococcus, etc.) - Pathogen microorganism detection. - Enzymatic test for toxics detection (ELISA TEST)
- It will serve to choose, in the economical and political fields, the better decision regarding environmental quality. Being supported by international or national Standards and Laws depending on each case (EU, EPA, ISO, etc) - Toxic and hazardous waste characterization - Water and waste water analysis. - Emission and inmission air analysis - Noise and vibrations
