NewGenShell – R&D project kick-off at MCG mind for metal

As part of the activities and competencies of the MCG mind for metal R&D team, the NewGenShell project (New Generation of High Performance Shells for Climatic Chambers) project is now starting at the company’s facilities in Carregado and in partnership with Aralab and ITeCons, the other two companies that make up…

…the consortium.


The main goal of the project is researching, designing, developing, prototyping and validating a new concept of climate boxes (with isothermal enclosures) with integrated climate control modules – the NewGenShell – New Generation of High Performance Shells for Climatic Chambers.


This modular system will originate large test chambers – where a complete…

…automobile can fit, for example –, capable of generating extreme temperature conditions (-75ºC to 180ºC), relative humidity (10% to 98%) and variable ventilation.


The NewGenShell project responds to challenges posed by the automotive, aeronautics, electronics, biotechnology and refrigeration/cryogenic industries, areas that currently look for systems with these characteristics.
