HORIZON 2020: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

PRO.F.I.T.: FAST PRODUCTION OF TITANIUM SCREWS

PRO.F.I.T., acronym for Production for Fasteners in Titanium is an innovative technology for printing series of custom titanium screws.

With the PRO.F.I.T. project and its revolutionary production process for titanium screws, POGGIPOLINI is changing from a semi-manual production to a mass production process.

This will allow Poggipolini to become a new player in the titanium fasteners market for the aerospace industry and will offer the ability to use custom titanium fasteners in other mature markets such as the automotive sector.

REVOLUTIONARY INNOVATION; key points in the production process:

HIGH SPEED
The whole process is completely personalised

LINEAR & MODULAR
Machine downtime reduced to a minimum.
The process is designed to manage multi references.

TITANIUM
The process is designed for high strength materials such as titanium.

Because of this constant research and development, our work has been recognised by the European Community.

In fact, Poggipolini is one of the few Italian companies that has received the Horizon 2020 funding; European funding programme for research and innovation, for its project called PRO.F.I.T..

Thanks to this result, Poggipolini is now also classified as a company in the SME European Champions league.

POGGIPOLINI'S KNOW-HOW IN FORMING TITANIUM

The project has gone through 2 steps, and involved 3 structural parts:

the upper part of the rear window (Fig. 1), the motor cover (Fig. 2), the central part of the bumper immediately under the engine exhaust (Fig. 3).

Step 1) re-engineering of the structural parts with a new material, titanium sheet, to replace carbon fibre which tended to turn yellow after continuous exposure to heat.

Step 2) producing and forging the titanium sheet, keeping the drawing, the thicknesses and the original curves of the first carbon fibre production.

WEIGHT REDUCTION: lower weight by 10-15% compared with the carbon fibre version.

TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES: lighter solution on high temperature areas such as the engine area.

STYLE: high-tech and exclusive style, very interesting product, new solutions from the style point of view.

APPLICATIONS: the perfect solution for covers, exterior and interior panels, car bodies and air grilles.

OPPORTUNITIES: a new product solution and competitive costs compared with carbon fibre.

POGGIPOLINI PRODUCTION OF TITANIUM WHEEL BOLTS

Titanium wheel bolts produced by Poggipolini are made from full titanium bars - Ti-6Al-4V (also known as Gr. 5; material used routinely in the aerospace industry) - and help reduce the weight of of each wheel by 1 kg, increasing by 50% the clamping force between wheel and hub.

The advantage obtained on rotating masses allows a significant reduction in inertia, with immediate and perceptible benefits in the responsiveness of the driving performance of the car.

The bolts are provided with captive washers, which, together with surface treatment called DLC (Diamond Like Carbon), completely changes the physical interaction at the interface between the various components involved, allowing you to double the screw torque in order to further increase your driving enjoyment.

Furthermore, titanium is a material that does not corrode, is more durable and flexible than standard steel and is renown as a valuable material.

APPLICATIONS:
The product is ideal for limited editions of cars and/or for customisations (optional).

TITANIUM ROLL BAR
AND WHEEL BOLTS FOR THE NEW
695 BIPOSTO

POGGIPOLINI IS A STRATEGIC PARTNER FOR THE NEW ABARTH 695 BIPOSTO EXHIBITED FOR THE FIRST TIME ON 4 MARCH AT THE 84TH GENEVA INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW.

Poggipolini developed and produced the titanium roll-bar and wheel bolts.

The roll-bar is made entirely of titanium and weighs 50% less than the first version made of steel.

Each piece is fully welded by hand, in special high-vacuum chambers which increase the physical-mechanical characteristics. It is a structural process that uses the same technologies in the manufacturing process as those used by F1.

Each roll-bar is numbered and subjected to an electronic quality control of the latest generation, with tolerances of tenths of a micron per cm2.

The visible welds and sandblasted finish of the titanium give a sporty, hi-tech appeal to the roll bar increasing its added value.

The wheel studs, made from full titanium bars, reduce the weight of each wheel by 1 Kg, increasing by 50% the clamping force between the wheel and the hub, making driving even more exciting.

The bolts are all customised by laser with the Abarth logo.
