Cutting-edge equipment and facilities

DESIGN & ENGINEERING

From tooling and instruments up to space-qualified high-precision mechanisms, our expert engineers can support your designs, optimizing the production in terms of cost, performance and reliability.

We use the most advanced software and CAD-CAE-CAM tools. Our teams specialize in all the process stages: conceptual design, 3D design, detail drawings, material lists, etc., all of them oriented towards an efficient manufacturing.

We are experts in Integrated Logistics Support (ILS), generating user and maintenance manuals, technical publications and illustrations according to the ASD S1000D and S2000M standards.

MANUFACTURING, ASSEMBLY, INTEGRATION AND TEST

We have decades of experience in the manufacture and assembly of over 1,000 different parts each year, using a wide range of machining technologies. We use top of the range machinery (MAKINO, DMG, JUNG, DANOBAT, ONA, HEXAGON, FRONIUS, etc.) to comply with the most demanding quality and reproducibility requirements from aerospace, defence and science industry.

We have CAD-VAM tools for machining and post-processing: lathing, milling, rectification (tangential and cylindrical), electrical discharge machining (wire and penetration), high pressure water jet, abrasive blasting, and washing/degreasing. We provide approved mechano-welding capabilities for the manufacture of structural assemblies. Welding: TIG, MIG/MAG and LASER welding for carbon and stainless steels, and special alloys (e.g., Jethete).

We are approved for special processes such as electrical discharge machining (control of recast layer), welding, laser etching, visual inspection and liquid penetrants.

Our 90sqm ISO-8 clean room with thermal vacuum chamber is suitable for assembly integration and test of space-grade equipment.

INSPECTION AND TEST

With the aim of guaranteeing the quality of all the jobs performed, ARQUIMEA carries out an exhaustive control of them all, providing inspection certificates for all jobs undertaken.

We have a verification laboratory with a controlled temperature and humidity environment and we calibrate all our verification equipment according to international patterns with guaranteed traceability: coordinate measuring machines, 3D arm, durometers, electronic profile projector, perthometer, thread gauge, microscales, oscilloscopes, nano-ammeter, particle counter, etc.

ARQUIMEA also has a testing department with qualified capabilities for:

  • Mechanical trials for load testing
  • Non-destructive liquid penetrant inspection trials and visual inspection
  • Electric trials
  • Fluid tests
  • Pressure, vacuum, temperature, humidity and flow rate test
  • Particle analysis
  • We also have agreements with research centres and certified laboratories (UPM, CENIM, IFA, CEMAM, LORTEK, etc.).

ARQUIMEA is the approved and authorised centre in Spain for the maintenance and calibration of hoists for aeronautic use (civil and military) for the manufacturer Didsbury Engineering.

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

ARQUIMEA has extensive experience in metal Additive Manufacturing for production of highly complex parts through the addition and sintering of material.

We are experts in post-processing techniques to solve the limitations of this technology, obtaining the best results in dimensional and geometric tolerances, roughness, threads and interfaces. We use automated and semi-automated processes for deburring, polishing and surface hardening, including abrasive, thermal, chemical, electrochemical and magnetic techniques, each one selected according to the part and the customer requirements.

COMMITMENT TO QUALITY

We are committed to quality and the continual improvement of processes and services, with the aim of ensuring the satisfaction of our customers.

We design, manufacture and manage our production using a quality system compliant with the standards EN 9100 & UNE-EN ISO 9001.

The quality manual, the general procedures and the technical instructions all form the basis of the documentation and encourage uniformity in the working methods in the descriptions of their implementation.

Our procedures and welding personnel are all approved by CESOL (Spanish Association of Welding and Joining Technologies), LORTEK-IK4 and SOLySOL. The personnel that carry out NDT are certified by CERTIAEND (Certifying body of the Spanish Association for Non-destructive Testing).
