Technology R&D

Curiosity is the incentive to growth, study and innovation are the tools to achieve it.

Our products are part of complex mechanisms, more and more are assembled on automated lines, to ensure performance, quality and production efficiency it is necessary to invest in research and new technologies.
The experience of the technical department makes use of an internal prototyping department and that of modern equipment for the production of progressive tools.


Process development

Co-design and brainstorming, material testing, design analysis, prototype execution, functional testing: geometry, performance, endurance testing. Each of these phases are necessary to optimize resources and provide the best possible project for the customer's needs.

Automated lines, progressive tools, specific production and control equipment, each process can be actualized to make a project competitive.


Laboratory and instrumentation

The development or improvement of a product is possible if the initial conditions are known and defining a goal.

Thanks to specialized technicians and modern measuring instruments - 3D, 2D, cameras, laboratory machines for mechanical tests, dynamometers, torque transducers - but also thanks to the support of certified laboratories and university research centres involved when necessary, we study the characteristics of a product and verify with the client the possibilities of improving them.

Research and Laboratory

  • Fatique tests
  • Tensile tests
  • Hardness tests HV, HRC, HB
  • Checking the thickness of coatings with X-rays
  • Measuring checks also 3D
  • Dedicated testing for specific product quality


Industry 4.0

The performance of a mechanism is linked to that of its sub-components, identifying and knowing the relationships between all the mechanical characteristics is an ambitious goal that can be achieved by a precise data collection, the exchange of this data collection between the supplier’s system and that of the client and from the ability to identify even a single product.

Cappeller has developed these concepts, it is a reality for some specific projects.

ADVANCED PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS

Whether it's a customer product or a part of a new equipment, we are able to analyze and calculate performance through FEM analysis. The results are then proven by specific tests such as mechanical strength tests, fatigue tests, functional tests or endurance tests.
