sector, we make use of advanced tools like:

  • 17 die casting cells, 10 of which equipped with brand-new technologies like termographic cams.
  • 5 smelting furnaces to manage different alloys at the same time,
  • 3 radiography equipment with computer tomography in our new quality department

The high level of expertise developed over the last 50 years
makes us a key partner in the powertrain, drivetrain and industrial sector. From the production of cylinder heads - for both diesel and petrol engines - where high mechanical strength is required, up to the most modern applications aimed at sustainable mobility We work for some of the major groups like Audi, FCA, BRP, DUCATI, BOSCH, ZF, BMW e VOLKSWAGEN.

The digitalization of our processes has been an important milestone through the years.
Nowadays, it allows us to plan evey step of our process in depth, to grant its successful implementation entirely
