Materials engineering focuses on the design of a structure to achieve a project with a specific purpose and properties.
The materials that currently and according to different studies have greater demand and interest are steels, aluminum, polymers and technical polymers.
The engineering company Infinitia is an expert in materials and offers solutions that are easy to incorporate and with high levels of efficiency.
Most of society is familiar with the “famous” engineering fields that are most commonly identified, such as civil engineering, industrial organization, mechatronics, electronics and automation, computer science or agri-food, among many others. But does anyone know exactly what materials engineering is and what applications it has? For many, this concept will be little known because they will have barely heard of it, but materials engineering focuses on the design of a structure to achieve a project with a specific purpose and properties, including adaptation to reality and without forgetting the relationship that this engineering has with mechanics and manufacturing.
A clear example where we can see this type of engineering is in the company Infinitia Research, based in Zaragoza and founded in 2014. This company is formed by a team of fully qualified professionals specialized in areas that are related to materials innovation, as well as their design and prototyping, and supporting the different phases of the business, from the project idea to industrialization. Going a little deeper, its scope of action is aimed at the manufacturing sector in general and the food and technology sector in particular.
The materials that currently and according to different studies have greater demand and interest are: steels, aluminum, polymers and technical polymers. All of them are mainly used in the vehicle manufacturing industry, shipbuilding, among others.
Materials engineers usually work in the next most recognized industrial positions, such as, for example, the automotive industry, replacing materials or ensuring the quality of products. In this case, Infinitia covers the needs of customers through the innovation of elements to ensure improvements of the confections or processes that have not yet been elaborated or those that are underway, without forgetting the sustainability or multifunctionality demanded in relation to this type of engineering.
For the company to function, one of the factors that is presented as a determining factor is the operability of the materials used. Lately, one of the “star” materials are those that are self-cleaning and have less adhesion to certain substances, or materials that manage to repair themselves and “regenerate” thanks to a reaction of humidity. Infinitia, an expert in materials innovation, includes among the criteria of its work the respect for the environment to promote energy savings and optimization of natural resources.
As a center for materials engineering, the Aragonese startup has two very clear objectives to continue promoting this type of engineering, such as adapting to new changes and needs on the part of customers, and the development of products and processes. Without forgetting that this company is a clear example that will continue to seek solutions to further boost the industrial field.
