L & F srl is a Milan based company, founded in 2010. The two managers are Federico Canetta and Lorenzo Dellacorna, both graduated in Physics. Main references are in the field of power and communication control: after initial experiences in the automation field, with an important partnership with SNAM, the Italian gas transport and distribution company. The cooperation’s purpose was to supply all kind of systems for cathodic protection of high pressure gas pipelines (power monitoring and data transmission), followed by integration of power control and communication into Xray equipment (diffractometer) and X-Y-Z axis control on X-ray Spectrometers, for an international company based in Geneva.
The company launched into the market a new generation of CCR (Constant Current Regulators), providing a higher efficiency and performance control, an unprecedented reliability and safety, to supply the airfield lighting systems. The market developed consistently, therefore the company opened a dedicated production facility to supply fully certified equipment. The most important success was the complete set-up of Madrid Baracas airport CCR’s network, with over 500 units, for a total of 7.5 MW of installed power.
Other important airport installations are: Amsterdam Schiphol, Johannesburg OR Tambo, London Heathrow, Malaga, Milano Malpensa, and others with a total of more than 30MW. Recently the company has developed a new technology approach to the power generation, aiming at higher efficiency and reliability, developing a series of patent applications. While the airfield applications are now exclusively dedicate.
