SINT Technology decided to enrich its online comunication creating a website completely dedicated to experimental modal analysis.
Modal Analysis is a core service that SINT Technology can provide its customers (company, industries) for describing, understanding and modelling the dynamic behaviour of a structure.
Main fileds of application which can benefit of experimental modal analysis service are:

  1. Aerospace
  2. Automotive
  3. Heavy machinery
  4. Rotating machinery
  5. Oil & Gas
  6. Power generation
  7. Wind energy
  8. Building engineering


SINT Technology article “SINT Technology Field-testing Compressor Performance” written by Andrea Nicoletti has been published inside Compressor Tech2, publication dediclated to Gas Compression products & Application.

Here the complete article:

SINT Technology will be present at Powergen Europe, that will be held from the 9th to the 11th of June 2015 in Amsterdam, Netherland.

POWER-GEN is the largest annual conference that is going to be held in Europe on 2015.  It will take place in Amsterdam, 9-11 June and it will involve more than 11,000 power industry professionals, 435 exhibitors and more than a 1,000 conference delegates, from more than 100 countries.

This year the conference will be in conjunction with Renewable Energy World Europe covering  all aspects of the power generation sector, combining strategic and technical presentations and connecting all power industry professionals.

SINT technology location inside the fair is 5C10 (see event map)

Thursday, February 26th, 2015 at SINT Technology headquarter, in Calenzano, will be held the seminar in Acoustic tests, in collaboration with SIEMENS (LMS).

This seminar is therefore dedicated to those who want to learn to deal with noise problems. Application examples will help clarify the basic concepts to those who approach the world of noise engineering, specifically in the automotive, aviation, aerospace and industrial mechanics. During the seminar the various tools of SIEMENS Test and Simulation will be used together and interactively. You will have the opportunity to personally experience the different measurement systems dedicated to acoustic characterizations and perform experimental measurements.

SINT Technology will participate in the next ECRS, European Conference on Residual Stresses, as an established company in the field of Residual Stress measurement.

The 9th edition of ECRS will be held in Troyes, France, July 7-10, 2014: it is a cycle of conferences about Residual Stresses which follows the 8 previous editions held in Karlsruhe (1983), Darmstadt (1990), Frankfurt/Main (1992), Cluny (1996), Delft (1999), Coimbra (2002), Berlin (2006) and Riva del Garda (2010).

It is a convivial gathering of scientists, students and engineers interested by Residual Stresses which is a multi-scale phenomenon that influences most of the physical properties of materials and surfaces.

SINT Technology Laboratory obtained the extension of ACCREDIA accreditation last 8th May 2014 with Certificate No. 0910.

The list of tests for which the laboratory is accredited can be found on the official accreditation ( The tests cover measurement of residual stresses area, vibration, modal analysis, acoustics and thermodynamic measurements areas.

ACCREDIA Accreditation:

– Demonstrates the technical competence of the staff, the use of adequate instrumentation,
the impartiality of the personnel performing the tests and judgments
Technical issued by the laboratory;

– Attests to the organization’s compliance and management
Technical UNI CEI EN ISO / IEC 17025.

Accreditation is a voluntary choice of testing laboratories, centers
calibration and certification bodies wishing to give evidence,
internationally, to operate with competence and professionalism
according to criteria of procedural rigor, independence, impartiality and integrity.

A Laboratory accredited to UNI CEI EN ISO / IEC 17025 (SINAL) is is evaluated according to its Quality System, both for their own technical expertise relating to specific evidence. a certified ISO 9001 is evaluated only on the basis of its Quality System.

Gli esami di estensimetria, successivi ai corsi, permettono di ottenere la certificazione del personale addetto alle prove non distruttive, metodo ST, in conformità alla norma ISO 9712:2005.

Gli esami comprendono parti teoriche e pratiche: l’esame di primo livello si svolge in un giorno e quello di secondo livello dura invece 2 giorni. La certificazione è particolarmente importante perché

  1. Dimostra e certifica la Vostra competenza nel settore estensimetrico.
  2. Il risultato di una prova dipende fortemente dalla capacità e dalla competenza del personale che si occupa della misura.

Per maggiori informazioni su quote di partecipazione e domanda di iscrizione agli esami consultate la sezione “formazione” del sito.

Thursday, October 10th, 2013 at SINT Technology headquarter, in Calenzano, will be held the seminar in Experimental Modal Analysis and Correlation FEM, in collaboration with LMS.

During the seminar, after a general presentation of LMS, you could attend the entire process that goes from the acquisition of the experimental data, modal analysis of the structure, passing through the correlation  phase, to the updating of the FEM model.

To ensure realistic simulations with a high degree of reliability, it is essential that the FEM models are validated with experimental data.

The various LMS tools for experimentation and simulation will be used together in an interactive way.

The seminar will close with real examples of operational modal analysis and time for questions and insights.

Participation in the seminar is free of charge.

Location: SINT Technology, via delle Calandre, 63 – 50041 Calenzano – FI

SINT Technology will participate in the next Chinese National Conference and International Symposium on Residual Stress, to be held from the 28th to the 31st of October in Shanghai, China.
This is the most important event in the Residual Stress field in the Chinese industry, and SINT Technology will attend the Conference with a presentation and with an exhibition of the instrument Restan-MTS3000 with the partner EPCO Test Tech.
For more information on the Conference and SINT Technology’s partner:

SINT Technology will participate in the next Residual Stress Summit, to be held on Monday-Thursday October 7-10, 2013 at the Hilton Garden Inn Idaho Falls, in Idaho Falls, USA.
The aim is to provide participants with the highest technical value among professional meetings at a moderate cost.
The central objective of the Residual Stress Summit series is to bring together residual stress users, (who have “problems” and are in search of “solutions”) and developers (who have “solutions” and are in search of “problems”).
