The TIP (Product & Process Innovation Team) research group is part of the Department of Industrial Engineering of Florence (DIEF).

The group is coordinated by Prof. Monica Carfagni, who harmonizes the
work of 15+ people. The team is composed by researchers with different educations profiles and a background in various technical areas, resulting in a group that can count on the integration of multiple skills and competences from many technical fields. The main areas covered by the group’s expertise are mechanical engineering, computer science and biomedical engineering. Mechanical design, additive
manufacturing, reverse engineering, geometric modelling, computer graphics, virtual & physical prototyping, process simulations, and acoustics are the principal competences of the group.
TIP’s mission is the study and development of design methods and tools, tailored to solve
advanced design problems from different technical areas.
This research interest has emerged, over 20+ years, in different ways, producing significant and innovative results in numerous application fields. Notable examples, described in the following pages, can be found in the following sectors: biomedical, cultural heritage, industrial, fashion & textile, environment, food &
agriculture. Some examples of the innovations achieved by TIP are the mechanical design of advanced systems, development of custom CAD software tools, study of optical scanning systems, improvement of medical procedures, development of prototypal products.
