Landi Renzo is using modeFRONTIER® to calibrate numerical models and to get an optimal and robust EPR

“The first project with modeFRONTIER®, a

It proved to be a very efficient approach, based on the stateof-the-art Design Of Experiment available in modeFRONTIER.” “Computer-Aided Engineering has always been a key success factor for our growth - says Viliam Alberini, Leader of the Components Division and EnginSoft, partner in distribution of ESTECO srl, has been supporting our demands well for years. Adding modeFRONTIER® to our software chain in 2008 has been a winning move for more than one reason: with modeFRONTIER® our approach to product concept has become more systematic and now allows us to evaluate more alternatives and take into account the effects of more design variables. This translates into value to our customers: critical factors are understood and handled much earlier in the process and the design results more robust in a shorter time. modeFRONTIER® has also improved the predictive power of our numerical models by feeding them with lab testing results. This philosophy has reduced development times and costs, and our team can cater to customer demands and discuss specifications with them more efficiently”.


Based in Cavriago (Reggio Emilia - Italy), with more than 50 years experience in the sector, Landi Renzo is distinguished by a sustained revenue growth, a listing in the STAR segment of the Italian stock exchange, and the extent of its international operations, with a presence in over 50 countries. The Landi Renzo Company was established in 1954 when Renzo Landi and his wife Giovannina Domenichini founded Officine Meccaniche Renzo Landi, at the time the only manufacturer of mixers specifically designed for all kinds of vehicles. Landi Renzo S.p.A. is now a global leader in the sector of components and LPG and CNG fuel systems for motor vehicles, serving more than 30% of the market of alternative automotive fuel systems and components. It is a preferred supplier by a growing number of worldwide brands like Daimler Chrysler, Fiat, Opel, PSA, Renault, Volkswagen, and more recently Toyota. Landi Renzo S.p.A. Research and Development Centre is currently the only one in its field to use advanced technologies that allow creating and developing modern systems to convert vehicle fuel systems to LPG and CNG.
