IDEKO is a technology centre that specialises in industrial production and manufacturing technologies, and we are integrated into the IK4 Technology Alliance. Our activity covers the identification and analysis of opportunities, the design and development of products, business lines and production processes and the resolution of problems through the provision of technological services such as technical consultancy and equipment based services.
Our organisation is supported by two technical departments: the technology research and development department where our lines of research are developed, and the technology innovation and exploitation department, where we analyse the current and future needs of our customers, and we identify opportunities and transfer the results of our research activity into value and competitive difference.

IK4-IDEKO led WP2, in order to optimize composite manufacturing, determine the optimal materials and optimize the performance of the final components by the determination of the mechanical properties of the joint parts, together with the simulation of the behaviour of the part depending on the process conditions of the joint.
In WP3 and WP4, IDEKO contributed on the optimization of the design of the composite design and its metallic insert, considering the specifications required and the influence on the joining process in the properties on the part. It was also be involved in the characterization of the joints, both mechanical and microstructural.
IDEKO participated also in WP1, and WP6, and WP8.
