SMART QUIMIC interviews Carles Colominas

The magazine SMART QUIMIC interviewed Carles Colominas, Professor in Materials Science at IQS –URL and CEO at Flubetech. The interview discusses the present and future of new materials developed in research centres and, increasingly, more quickly deployed the industry. The interview analyse the future of surface engineering, the new industrial dimension of smart surfaces and nano - technologies that allow modify the materials and get these new surfaces.

Flubetech  participates in the day Interempresas  - ASAMMET  "Aceros inoxidables: Presente y futuro de su transformación” that will take place on November 10 in IQS. The conference aims to create a space for debate among professionals in fields related to stainless steel and machining, and for that we have the cooperation and participation of the leading manufacturers, processors and users of stainless steel of our territory, they can share with society in general and professionals in particular experiences, concerns and developments. For registration and a full schedule click HERE.


Flubetech is going to participate, the next November 5th, in the seminar  SURFAS DAY organized by AIAS. The seminar will be held in Madrid in the frame of the exibition   METALMADRID 2015, next days  4th and 5th of November. Flubetech gives a presentation based on the coatings for machining tools in the aircraft industry. Click  HERE for the inscriptions and to take a look to the full programm.

Flubetech and Eurecat-CTM involved in the Innoplasmed project

Flubetech and Eurecat-CTM are involved in the research project for advanced coatings to improve the clinical success of prosthetic implants and surgical instruments.  Flubetech leads the Innoplasmed project in which it participates with Eurecat-CTM Technology Center. The objective of the research is the development of advanced coatings to solve the biological, chemical stability and mechanical problems that are identified in materials for prostheses, implants and surgical instruments. The project is focused on innovation of coatings obtained using high energy plasma technology for biomedical applications. The HPPMS (High Power Plasma Magnetron Sputtering) technology will guide the project objectives towards an improvement for the long-term clinical success. The coatings will be processed from the develomplent and industrial implementation of two innovative coating techniques based on hihg-energy plasma: The magnetron sputtering with high power pulses (HPPMS) and the ion implantation by plasma immersion (PIIID). The Innoplasmed project will last for 3 years with a tota budged of 432.326€ which will be founded by Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad in its program Retos-Colaboración 2015 del Plan Estatal de Investigación Científica y Técnica y de Innovación 2013-2016.    

Flubetech starts the collaboration at Politécnico di Milano

Flubetech is collaborating with the Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI) in the frame of the project Sludgetreat. The project, supported by the EC, is led by CMIC-Dep. Chimica, Materiali e Ingegneria Chimica "Giulio Natta" and DICA Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the POLIMI together with the Italian firm AST, and with the participation of AIN and Flubetech for their knowledge in materials science and engineering area. The treatment of sewage sludge by electron osmosis is the most efficient method to extract water from the mud and get a recyclable solid waste, but involves a friction wear and corrosion of the electrodes. Flubetech contribution is based on the improvement of the base material and electrode surface by PVD coatings. The aim is to achieve better wear resistance, corrosion and electrical conductivity.

Vacuum Technology Seminar

Flubetech participate, on 19th of May, in Torrejon de Ardoz (Madrid) in 2015 Vacuum Technical Conference organized by Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum and INTA (National Institute of Aerosespacial) The presentation is going to be given by Carles Colominas and based on the vacuum coating techniques PVD and CVD, especially in obtaining carbon compounds (PCD and DLC), the HIPIMS technology and their industrial applications.

Flubetech is founder and partner of the Advanced Materials Cluster (MAV)

The Cluster for Advanced Materials (MAV) will be presented on 7th May. Flubetech has been a partner for many years and is one of the founding members. The event is open to all companies, especially those working in the field of the cluster activity. The presentation program and registration are available here. The aim of MAV Cluster is to promote networking with other partners, to share information on technologies and products, create synergies, collective projects, new developments, etc. MAV is a cross-cluster. This is the reason why MAV is pushing hard to organize inter-cluster meetings. These meetings offer the possibility to interact with other cluster companies that may require the collaboration of MAV partners.

Flubetech in TEKNOS magazine

David Román and Xavier Corbella visited us to get to know us and write an article about Flubetech in Teknos, School of Engineering magazine. We really appreciate their interest, not only in the activity of Flubetech, also in the activity of the local industrial companies. The article referred to Flubetech can be found in Teknos- 191, page 40. Furthermore, we would like to encourage you to visit the blog "El Tecnigraf " edited by them. You will find technical reports about companies, systems, processes and engineering curiosities which can be amplified and discussed. To access the Blog, please click here.

Technical presentations at Schools

The Technical Department of Flubetech has been collaborating with the Department of Studies Promotion of UPC to give some technical presentations. The goal is to motivate students to choose technical studies showing their applications and daily uses. Flubetech participated for years in this experience, offering UPC, some presentations based on new materials, conventional materials and coatings. High Schools can get in touch with UPC to request the presentation which is more closely associated to their monographic workshops. This year, Flubetech has carried out three presentations at IES Joan Oró (Martorell), IES La Ribera (Moncada and Reixach) and IES Eugeni Xammar (L’Ametlla del Vallès) to offer an introduction to coatings technology, discussing the different techniques used to achieve these coatings and the theoretical aspects of the origins of coatings. Theory, technology and application.

IV Edition of the Horror Film Festival of Sabadell

Flubetech, as it did in the past year, is supporting the IV Festival Horror Film Sabadell, which will be held from 16 to 22 February 2015. This collaboration is due to the close friendship with Jordi Casals (member of the organization) and the interest of Flubetech in participating in the cultural events taking place near our location. To know more about the program, please click here. We hope that this event is a success and that Flubetech will continue to collaborate in future editions


ASAMMET launched the first Jornada ASAMMET – METAL DURO at EUETIB in Barcelona. (Escola Industrial) The conference,  with the participation of Flubetech, is based on industrial applications of hard metal (cemented carbide). Manufacturers and end users will discuss  the current advantages and disadvantages of Hard Metal. For Inscriptions please click here and to get the final program please, click here
