IFI R&D Dept.

Profile

The R&D Department is the company’s control room from which, as a result of continuous research into new technologies, all new IFI products emerge: a team of men and women who interpret and standardise their own designs or those of industrial designers. Structural, thermodynamic, electrical and mechanical design, preparation of drawings and documentation, quantifying the industrial cost, generation of codes and bills of materials, standardisation of designs: a group of 30 qualified professionals including engineers, specialist technicians, researchers and designers which has no equivalents in other companies in the sector, was bolstered in 2000 to breathe life into innovations that are still unique in the world like Tonda and Bellevue, as well as to produce a range of display cases for artisan gelato-makers which is today considered one of the most comprehensive and effective. IFI’s R&D Department works with all the designers and is the creator of many products currently in our catalogue.
