R&D

A key component of the technical staff  is our laboratory with its technicians, chemists and metallurgists.
The team carries on, from many years the research to optimize existing alloys and to develop new ones to be applied in all our products.

The laboratory is equipped with laboratory furnaces both for smelting and heat-treatment and with all necessary tools for the study of materials, such as:

  • machines for Brinell and Vickers Hardness Control
  • machines for Tensile tests and Impact tests
  • machines for Water-Jet Cutting and EDM
  • instrumentation for Chemical Analysis and Metallography.

We recently developed a new alloy, called FG6HP, which finds application in the first chambers of the ball mills. The alloy provides a life much higher than conventional materials.
