In Atibaia (Brazil) lies the heart of R&D created by Acument Global Technologies, a Fontana Gruppo company, which operates in the South American market. The Technological Center performs product development functions for specific solutions based on tests relating to performance calculation systems. One of the focuses of research carried out in Atibaia is the rationalization and homologation of fasteners (from the rationalization of types of bolt heads or of classes of resistance to the standardization of the torques) as well as analysis of faults; all with the aim of maximising performance, increasing quality and reducing costs.
The results generated then converge into case histories and technical insights and an intensive training activity for experts in the sector.
