Fondalpress provides a technical service capable of finding the most suitable solutions. It develops the design idea according to the highest optimization levels, both in term of product and process.
Fondalpress uses computer systems to simulate die filling and to analyse the metal flow in the die-casting dies, suggesting improvements to the product. To reduce time and costs in the development phase, Fondalpress supplies rapid prototyping pieces (SLA,SLS), prototypes and small lots made with gypsum casting and sand casting, processing and producing ‘soft-tooling’ dies that allow for realistic advance checks before moving on to series tooling.
To support the products development and to be sure to satisfy the customers’ expectation, Fondalpress applies the APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) system.

As a guarantee, the quality department constantly monitors both, the processes and the products, to meet customer’s requests.
For this purpose it uses analysis made both by certification bodies, and inside the company through a variety of instruments like:

COMPUTERIZED QUANTOMETER:for chemical analysis of 12 elements (quantity and quality)

MICROSCOPE

DUROMETER

INJECT CONTROL for random inspection of pressure die-casting parameters

RADIOSCOPY:with luminance intensifier to check the compactness of the castings and photo filing

CMM: tridimensional high precision tracers for dimensional checks of the castings

Zeiss/DEA (Hexagon Metrology) for thr dimensional controls of the castings

Manual gauges, MARPOSS and checking jigs

The company was certified for the first time in compliance with the norm UNI ISO 9001 in 1999 and ISO/TS 16949:2002 in 2004, then it updated its own certifications arriving to the current UNI ES ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949:2016, which certificates are available in this web-site under MEDIA ROOM – DOWNLOAD.
