Alchemist components are representative of the maximum technical expression applied to a product. Innovation and quality are due to the careful process of high-tech craftsmanship in which the direct involvement of the technical staff is crucial.
The alchemist encapsulates science, experience, sensitivity and philosophy within himself. His capabilities are founded on continuous research which are materialised in design and engineering; they are refined during the prototype phase and during testing, to then express themselves at their best in the product’s production phase and finish. The aim of the alchemist is to cut the finish line, his motivation, which is also his strength, is passion.
The alchemist only uses the finest materials for his production. Selection begins with individualising the type of carbon and the most suitable fibre weave to be used in relation to the stress each specific product will have to face at the time of use.
In addition to this, the alchemist only uses pre-impregnated carbon fibre as it is characterised by a uniform distribution and precise quantity of resin in every point, allowing weight and mechanical characteristics to be kept under control. From this it obtains values of resistance to breakage whilst the coefficient to lengthen is precise to the centimetre, as is its control over the entire surface. Coupling layers is studied to: take greater advantage of the material’s tenacity, reducing the intrinsic vulnerability of carbon-resin coupling such as delamination and chipping to a minimum; optimise the quantity of material used and therefore reduce weight as much as possible. Alchemist’s manufacturing process is distinguished by the fact of it introducing a “stabilisation” phase or rather a series of treatments and solutions which bring the material to its maximum mechanical expression. At this point the carbon fibre piece is ready for drilling, cutting to size, di-burring, cleaning, varnishing and any coupling with other materials.
All this is only possible thanks to the expert hands from whose essence “made in Italy” craftsmanship which today has become hi-tech can come from. Product testing is carried out on site by professional cyclists equipped with a developed sensitivity in judging critical areas, expressing their needs and requirements with particular care. The alchemist is aware that evolution is continuous as it is a process, a fibre, a polymer or a mechanical system which can always be improved. For the alchemist winning every challenge means reaching perfection to then set another point of departure, the space for another innovation.
