Technical Services: from characterization to industrialisation

CRM Groups offers several services regarding forming of materials.

1. Forming of metals and/or functionalized surfaces

  • Characterization of formability
  • Sensitivity of a functionalized surface to deformation
  • Troubleshooting


2.  Optimization of product/solution (numerical modelling)

  • Feasibility analysis
  • Selection of metals/grade
  • Cost reduction
  • Numerical design
