Mission

Here at ProM Facility we help enterprises to reach their objectives, realizing the prototypes they require promptly and with the outmost precision.

Our machinery, necessary for applied research activities, is available to research institutes from all over the world.

ProM Facility is a project realized within the Operative Programme FESR 2014 - 2020 of the Autonomous Province of Trento, thanks to the financial support of the European Union - European Fund for Regional Development - of the Italian State and the Autonomous Province of Trento.



How to access the ProM Facility services


Access to the ProM Facility services follows the logic already adopted by Trentino Sviluppo and hinges on a series of priorities, among which

  • Consistency with the strategic lines of ProM Facility, in particular with the mechatronic address that characterizes the laboratory activity
  • Ability to cope with projects in terms of human resources and technical skills
  • Positive repercussions on the territorial system and on the attraction of investments in Trentino

A New Deal

In spite of being a newborn project, ProM Facilty has already supported more than 25 different enterprises realizing they prototypes. Moreover, we activated several research projects with many enterprises, transferring them the competences necessary for operating with professionalism in fields of advanced knowledge.

Our activities entail four different but intertwined lines:

Prototyping

Mechanics (metal & poly), Electronics, Software

Testing

Mechanical testing benches and engines, climatic chamber, EM test, electronic test, equipped optical bench, cooperative robotic arm pair

Metrology

Tomography X, CMM, large volume scanners, color scanners, 3-D surface profiles for surfaces (confocal / Interferometric)

ICT

Artificial Intelligence, HPC for computing and simulation, support and cyber security consulting
