Research and Passion since 1982

Tekfer is a young, agile and dynamic company continuously evolving and expanding. Founded in 1982 thanks to the Italian and international twenty-years experience of its founder, it rapidly adapted to desi in safety techniques and quality management requirements required by the railway signaling market.

The Tekfer core is the Research and Development group which includes many electronic, computer and mechanical engineers in addition to other graduates in various scientific fields. Their activities are very important for all the other business sectors, in particular for the development of products and innovative systems.

The design activity, based on intrinsic safety products for Automatic Block Signalling, is accomplished and integrated with the development of redundant hardware platforms which are able to implement software and protocols in compliance with the SIL4 requirements given by the CENELEC standard rules.

The Research and Development phase is completed thanks to the internal “Verification and validation” group of projects, until reaching the Authorization for commissioning by the National Safety Authority for railways and by the customer homologation.

The products and systems are built with Construction Technical Specifications dictated by many years of experience, by the requirements imposed by the CENELEC sector standard rules and by the regulations issued by the multiple quality certifications achieved.

Inspections, supervisions, ICT and functional test phases, in addition to thermal and vibration tests performed in the internal metrological chamber, are of great importance. The goal is to guarantee the possibility to reproduce the process and assure the final high-level quality and reliability of the product.

The complexity of the provided systems required the training of a team which includes designers, installers and interlocking technicians enrolled in the specific sector’s registers, capable of modifying the customer signaling systems and of taking part in the Test & Commissioning group supporting the customer during the switch-off of the old system and activation of the new one.

Eventually, the presence of specialized maintenance technicians group guarantees a qualified technical assistance service: calling the tool-free number a ready response on national territory is provided.
