Only a few weeks for the Group anniversary

TUBACEX Services

TUBACEX Group has consolidated its industrial activity at the TUBACEX Services plant in Cantabria (Spain) where activities offering high value-added solutions for the Group (TUBACEX Group) and external customers have been implemented.

TUBACEX Services, in close collaboration with the Group's Innovation department has boosted technological development with the introduction of shotpeening. This is an advanced surface treatment aimed at contributing to improve the oxidation resistance of materials under critical application service conditions. Shot peening activity was consolidated in 2015 when major projects were completed and recognition from leading customers was obtained. Aiming for operation excellence has been the cornerstone to achieving competitiveness and quality standards for products and services demanded by the market.

In addition to shotpeening technology, the 5,000 square meter area houses a series of activities aimed at value generation and at meeting customer-specified requirements in the field of tubular products: operation service for a 1,000 T capacity warehouse; cut to size; special finishes; machining and beveling; and high-performance coatings, among others.

This new plant is a clear opportunity to develop R&D projects and activities in co-operation with technology centers in the region which may enable TUBACEX Group to be positioned at the technological forefront, as a leader in modeling and design of a characterization and non-destructive inspection system for shotpeening processes.

This enables TUBACEX Services to be aligned with the strategic policy of TUBACEX Group in offering solutions to provide added value for customers regarding both products and services.
