VDP spa Fonderia S.p.A.
Research and development A perfect knowledge of the phases that represent the transformation of a liquid metal into a permanent solid metal mould, allows the VDP department for research and development to plan and simulate, using appropriate softwares, the solidification of a new product before the construction of the equipment. The castings are subject to stringent tests to ensure their structural integrity. Qualified technicians perform several tests ranging from the examination with durometers up to the examinations carried out through ultrasonic inspection tools, magnetic particle and thickness measurement. A fully equipped metallurgical laboratory performs tests on temperature, quantometer analysis, microscopic examination with dedicated software for graphite and matrix measurements, tensile testing with machines up to sixty tons and resilience tests resilenza through pendulum up to a temperature of - 50 ° .
