Fontana R&D, a Fontana Gruppo company, developed a laboratory to measure the state of cleanliness of screws, and to define and implement processes and solutions to ensure further efficiency and better final performance of fasteners. A study carried out by the Veduggio research center is the result of the Group’s large automotive manufacturers’ need to assemble clean screws in engines to avoid the release of contamination dangerous to the engine’s proper functioning. “We have been aware of these major issues. The Group prepared in advance for this transition by implementing ad hoc product ranges, but also by equipping itself with specific machinery and a consequent revision of processes,” says Giorgio Mariani, Plant Quality Manager Fontana Luigi S.p.A. Veduggio.
