Research, control and innovation

Our laboratory, managed by a team of highly qualified technicians, is equipped with state-of-the-art analytical instruments, and is the cornerstone of our technical knowledge. Here we transform ideas and projects on paper into real and innovative solutions and products. And, as well as doing quality controls, it is where our Research & Development experts run analysis, trials, application experiments, and anything else useful to create new values, for us and for our customers. The laboratory daily performs all necessary tests to verify the compliance of products with the required specifications.

The support guaranteed by the laboratory staff is crucial, as it assures a constant exchange of information with customers throughout the whole product development process, in order to ensure that the results meet the defined target values.
