Conventional Technologies

We provide prototype development services, technical and technological support, in addition to producing small series of cast parts, moulds and models, as well as testing new materials or trials.

Laboratory Area

Material quality control: mechanical tests, classical chemical analysis, atomic absorption spectrometry or automatic emission spectrometry, metallographic tests, hygiene and industrial safety conditions, acoustics and characterisation of gaseous emissions.

New Technologies

Integrated computer-assisted design and manufacturing, namely in the area of Research and Development, taking part in numerous projects in collaboration with companies, as well as national and international R&D institutions. We should highlight that the CINFU was a pioneer in the area of CAD/CAM training in Portugal.

CINFU has the following labs:

  • Sand Property Tests
  • Chemical Analysis
  • Safety and Health
  • Mechanical Tests
  • Metallographic Analysis
  • Non-destructive Tests
