The European Commission approves Ensa its MEACTOS project .
This project, which lasts four years, aims to improve the reduction of residual stresses and the stress effect of cracking corrosion in steels from the perspective of microtensions and surface cracks induced by machining and treatments that can be given superficially to the pieces to alleviate them or to avoid their appearance.
In addition to the general objectives of the project, Ensa expects to obtain information on the possible replacement of cutting fluids and oils by refrigeration with cryogenic technology , and to acquire the necessary qualifications to carry out processes that have to do with this surface induction tension effect in machining.
In its “passion for improvement”, for Ensa it´s important work with the most advanced technologies, such as cryogenics or CO2 cooling and introduce the latest technological advances in its manufacturing processes.
Led by CIEMAT and within the framework of Research and Innovation Program of the European Union Horizon 2020 the Cantabrian Company has participated with AREVA, EDF and Nuclear AMRC.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 755151.
