Get to the heart of our processes and railway control systems
On Friday, March 25, we had the pleasure of hosting about thirty members of the College of Italian railway engineers (C.I.F.I.) led by the head of the section of Milan Ing. Giorgio Spadi, COO of Trenord. The goal of the day was to introduce our company and our products for railway control.
The engineer Spadi in thanking us for the invitation has very much appreciated our industrial reality, so as to begin with:
“We are on the lake and we are in one of the most important and innovative industrial reality of our region… It will be a pride for all of us to know it closely and visit its departments”.
CIFI, founded in 1899, is one of the oldest and most important professional associations in Italy. It unites about 2200 individual members who deal with land transport and is presided over by eminent exponents in the field of Science and Transport Technology, it enhances and promotes cultural growth.
Our guests were warmly welcomed by President Marco Gilardoni and COO Davide Baratto, who introduced the company by retracing the great journey undertaken by our founder Arturo Gilardoni in 1947.
“From him we have inherited so much… starting from the commitment and passion for what we do.” Davide Baratto
Gilardoni has made history but has always been able to look ahead and focus on innovation and the evolution of its industrial plants, anticipating change in many cases.
Our operating philosophy is based on putting ideas and people at the center of our actions.
The second technical speech was held by Marco Sarti, for over 40 years in Ferrovie dello Stato and Trenitalia, council member of the AIPND Association, who gave a presentation on non-destructive controls in the railway sector, focusing in particular on the regulatory framework of reference for both design and production.
In the afternoon, the college had the opportunity to visit the main laboratories of the company, starting from where an X-ray tube is born, up to the latest technologies that employ ultrasound in the railway field.
In the picture we see some of the moments of the visit in the company, where Matteo Rosafio, Tiziano Buzzella and Mauro Del Giorgio show our systems for ultrasonic controls in the railway sector
It was an important opportunity for sharing and deepening for all of us and our guests, a beautiful day for which we thank all the participants.
