ServicesPre-Series Center

Nowadays, development activities are supported by verification and validation methods based on virtual simulations with a high level of accuracy.

During the development phases, checks on physical objects like master models, mule cars and prototypes are nevertheless important for all the major manufacturers.

The Italdesign Pre-Series Center makes master models with ultra-high levels of precision for the validation of all design and engineering parameters.

Our Pre-Series Center is also able to set up running mule cars and prototypes complete in every detail. The testing activities performed on these objects enable us to validate the engineering calculations and optimize the engineering data before the final release of the production tools.

The Pre-Series Center Department uses the best available technologies:

  • 11 numerically-controlled milling machines
  • 8 presses, 3 laser cutting stations and 5 robots for the production of body parts and subassemblies
  • 15 measuring and scanning systems for quality control
  • 36 welding stations with 72 guns and 15 CO2 MIG/MAG welding stations for the production of 20 Bodies in White per week

Special equipment for final assembly can guarantee the production of more than 15 running prototype cars per week.

Dies and parts

We develop prototype and close-to-series dies, as well as tools to realize handmade body parts. We can supply any size of automobiles and commercial vehicles body parts in steel or aluminum.

Our press-shop and laser department production capacity covers prototypes, pre-series and/or small production volumes.

In the “try out” area we perform the die’s tests for processes validation as well.

Through our measuring centers we guarantee a consistent high quality of the product.
