Technologies

We have remained a vertically integrated company with the necessary internal know-how and assets to develop and manufacture all our products as a guarantee of a full control of the process and the necessary flexibility required in a business where production is based on customer order and for small batches. All areas are equipped with state-of-the-art HW and SW tools as a necessary condition for both innovative and competitive productions for the market.

Design

Our Engineering Department is divided in various teams dedicated to research & innovation, to mechanical & hydraulic design, to electronic & software design, to reliability, safety & product codification, to CAD & technical documentation management. Young and dynamic engineers and technicians are guided by senior engineers of great experience and rely on the most recent SW tools for design, modelling and technical documentation, on a 3D printer for the construction of first prototypes and on an impressive amount of available filed data.

Development

Strictly connected to the Engineering Department operates another team dedicated to product development and product qualification relying on in-house full availability of test equipment and rigs. We do environmental tests, vibration and mechanical shock tests, contaminated fluid tests and full system tests on specific benches to verify flows and pressures of fuel, oil and air.

Assembly

Another important area of the factory is dedicated to the assembly of the products and is organized in different teams with specifically trained and qualified personnel. We do mechanical, electrical, electromechanical and electronic assemblies in a clean environment. The disassembly of equipment that return for MRO activity is done in a separated area form the assembly of equipment for series production.

Tests

Close to the assembly area there are various test houses equipped with several test benches specifically designed and manufactured to execute all production tests for each single equipment and for a diversified range of equipment and fluids (fuel, hydraulic oil, water). The personnel operating in this area is specifically dedicated and highly experienced. The test area is also used for MRO activity both of own equipment and of third party equipment for which we have exclusive maintenance licences.
