Isolgomma is at the forefront in Italy for the study and production of vibration damping systems applied to the rail transport sector.
Through its R&D facility, Isolgomma develops products through constant monitoring of its production processes, by rigorously and effectively complying with ISO 9000 procedures. Thanks to this crucial ‘product study’ facility, Isolgomma is able to develop new products and technologies is an extremely short time.
The collaboration between Isolgomma’s R&D centre, located in Pozzuoli, and the University of Naples has enabled the company to attain and guarantee over time the highest quality standards for its products, in addition to the relevant certifications and technical documentation pertaining to surface, tunnel and underground railway applications.
The laboratory’s main activity lies in conducting tests for mechanical, performance, stress and forced ageing characterisation of anti-vibration mats.
The facility is equipped with a ‘Resilient Pat and Mat Testing Machine’ (RPMTM) for conducting static and dynamic tests of up to 100 Hz on mats and plates. Furthermore, a railway testing field is located outside the facility. It contains two full-size prototypes of railway and tramway/underground superstructures, for conducting static and dynamic tests through the use of hydraulic pistons and vibrodines.
