Gonvarri MS R&D, the R&D centre of Gonvarri Metal Structures, is participating in the project “Intelligent Metal Structures through electronic printing of sensors“, in which industrial research is being carried out to obtain new knowledge in printed electronics for the development of electronic sensors that enable the monitoring of metal structures. The general objective of the project lies in the design of a sustainable digital printing process capable of developing electronic sensors for the monitoring of metallic structures, providing an intelligent system that allows the transmission of high-value information on the state of structural health remotely.
The printing of electronic sensors has a transversal character, being able to monitor any parameter that can be transformed into an electrical signal. The results of the project can be extrapolated for the development of new products, processes or services in multiple industrial sectors.
The project, in which 8 entities participate, is financed by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, through the Call for Innovative Business Groups for the year 2023, within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.
