ALTEN automoción


 In a sector as dynamic and demanding as that of transport, engineering services have evolved, not only over time, but also accompanying the different cycles the industry has suffered, especially during the last decade.

The speed, versatility, flexibility when adapting to the needs of the clients, and diversity in terms of the services we offer are, without a doubt, our hallmark. In this way, ALTEN collaborates with the largest European car manufacturers and suppliers in new mobility solutions. Our engineers manage development and integration projects in the areas of powertrain, chassis, systems, electronics, interiors and vehicle dynamics.

ALTEN also offers services for the development of rolling stock and signaling systems, highlighting the design of structures and interiors, the development of software and road tests.

Automotive industry

Numerical crash simulationLearn more


ALTEN collaborates with major automobile manufacturers in the development of new metal structures, such as bumpers, door bars or battery boxes.

ALTEN engineers make numerical models of components and / or of the complete vehicle with specific tools of fast dynamic simulation, and assure the client the complete management of the different stages of validation of the structures.
