- Profile projectors
- 3D (CMM) inspection (7 centres)
- Automatic air gages
- NDT (penetrant testing, X-ray, fibroscopy, endoscopy)
- Metallographic inspection (grain, corrosion, fracture, surface, structures, cleanliness, porosity, contents, Al- pha-Case and contaminated layers, flow lines...)
Paolo Palazzago's validation approach is based on a strong standard watch in order to fit to best-in-class requirements (ISO and ASTM).
