An Industry 4.0 stakeholder
Involved in Industry 4.0, we aim to develop digital technologies. We support the automation of projects and means of production in order to lead to a more autonomous, smarter and more communicative industry. This allows companies to achieve productivity gains, optimization of production costs and quality control.
Industry 4.0 is accompanied by an organizational change to help teams adapt to technological changes and train young people on the industry of tomorrow. For this, TRA-C industrie is constantly working on on-going improvement of its production and on Lean Manufacturing.
Values reflected in the means of production
We are continuously working towards innovation. TRA-C industrie is the European leader in Friction Stir Welding (FSW), an innovative solid state welding technology. We are also the first European company to have developed FSW for series production.
This process has many advantages, such as the possibility of welding multi-metal parts in order to produce light alloys. It is therefore particularly used in the automotive sector and more particularly in e-mobility. TRA-C industrie is a major stakeholder in this area of activity and co-develops certain parts such as battery cases, chargers, etc.
For 10 years, major e-mobility groups have been trusting us for their complex projects.
