Bonfiglioli Research & Development

Research & Development

Convinced that innovation is an essential investment in the future and the basis for a consolidated market presence, the Bonfiglioli Group attaches great importance to the education, training and specialisation of its team of professionals, and has forged valuable partnerships with prestigious academic and training institutions.

The Bonfiglioli Group has grown by understanding and interpreting the times in which it operates: this close attention led, for example, to our strategic decision to move into the renewable energy market.

Today the industrial and manufacturing world is being forced to find new forms of electromobility and to develop solutions that combine the concepts of efficiency and energy recovery. The latest integrated solutions must be able to offer effective answers to increasingly specific and complex problems.
It is precisely to meet these requirements that we at Bonfiglioli invest constantly in innovation.
Technological excellence is pursued and achieved by our research and development departments, who develop innovative solutions in all the areas in which our Group operates: mechatronic, mechanical, electrotechnical and electronic.

This commitment to innovation has led to the creation of a research centre in Rovereto, BMR (Bonfiglioli Mechatronics Research), dedicated to the development of integrated mechatronic solutions for industry.

Bonfiglioli Vectron is our Group's specialist centre for power and control electronics and the development of high efficiency products for energy conversion in the industrial sector.
Located in Krefeld, Germany, and with over 25 years of experience, Bonfiglioli Vectron employs a team of over 50 specialist technicians and engineers to develop highly reliable and efficient solutions for frequency converters systems.

On top of all of this, of course, our experience and know-how in mechanical design has allowed Bonfiglioli to dominate the power transmission market for over 50 years.
Our two centres of excellence, in Bologna and Forlì, have different but complementary technical and design skills, and allow our Group to offer innovative, high-tech solutions that integrate fully with Bonfiglioli's product offering.

This range of competence, integrated into a common approach and strategy, is one of our key strengths in the development of effective and innovative solutions for our customers.
