A fundamental pilar
One of our priorities are research and development. Since 2013, ITS has participated in two European projects within Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
This program satisfies all EU initiatives involving research, which allow us to reach growth, competitive and employment objectives.
The main purpose of this project is to improve railway safety, enhancing non-destructive testing effectivity on wheels, in order to identify cracks in the shortest possible time.
Cupid’s aim is to detect corrosion under paint (CUP) through three new non-destructive testing techniques, entirely developed and complementary with each other.
