Projects and common concerns

In the last period Rulmenti SA Barlad has developed collaborations with national and international academic environment. The close collaboration with research centers from the technical universities becomes one of the strategies of the management team. In this context the company continues and maintains these collaborations within the scope to develop some common researches in the field of design and manufacturing of different products and also on other common concerns regarding the new research approaches, technical conferences and seminars.
Universities from Galati and Iasi which have defined and approved domains of study compatible with Rulmenti SA Barlad activities, design and mechanical manufacturing of bearings and different types of tools, checkers, devices and spare parts become confident collaborators and partners for the projects “URB private scholarships for master students”.
