The Institute manages basic and applied research in different technologies used in Earth Moving Machinery (MMT). The research ranges are: the analysis of power transmission by fluid, unstructured robotics and embedded electronics, numerical and experimental structural analysis of machines and components, vibration and noise as physical agents, characterization of the active control of noise and vibration, studies in soil mechanics and, last but not least, prenormative and normative studies on safety of machinery.
With the application of safety standards and regulations (e.g. ISO 3471,ISO 3449, ISO 12117-1 and -2) we perform the most important tests for conformity assessment of protective structures in the field of construction equipment. The experience gathered and the test facility available (among the largest in the world) allow the extension of the activity to other machines such as for example Snow Grooming Equipment, according to EN 15059 standard.
Under Italian regulations we can provide testing for:
Under Italian safety regulations on construction equipment to structural tests of the cabins (ROPS and FOPS) we provide compliance testing for safety belts and their anchorages (ISO 6683) and tests on the roofs of protection driver for large industrial trucks with lift height board operator (ISO 6055).
We are available to perform other tests that require application of loads under deformation control conditions.
IMAMOTER can also provide other research services, consultancy and assistance on request.
