R&D is at the heart of Fontana Gruppo excellence: nourished and built up daily through a constant quest for innovative solutions to customer fastening system needs.
Within the Group therefore, the company Fontana R.D. – Research and Development – plays the role of reference partner for designers during innovative solution research and development phases.
Research, in fact, on an apparently simple item like a screw or bolt, implies a large amount of study, experiments and field trials, activities that are carried out to create fasteners to specific customer design. Starting from the definition of customer needs and performing dynamic simulation tests to achieve item production according to mechanical and quantitative requirements, optimal product-use solutions are developed, identifying the one most suitable for each assembly and fixing need.
R&D is developed in coordination with the 3 centers of Veduggio (Italy), Fenton (USA) and Atibaia (Brazil), also work in collaboration with universities and research centers.
