Lactec researchers answer questions, problems, and challenges of the daily routine of companies to overcome market expectations and make products increasingly competitive and innovative.

This is why part of the R&D projects developed at Lactec generates accessory or equipment prototypes applied to several sectors of the economy.


With an emphasis on mechanics, electrics, electronics, and materials technology, some of the R&D projects developed that have already generated prototypes are:

  • System for locating flaws in insulated cables;
  • On-line insulated cable break location system;
  • Tomography for concrete structure analysis;
  • Protected network accessories;
  • Overheating sensor in electrical connections;
  • Intelligent Polymer Isolator;
  • Low Voltage Phase Regulator;
  • Intelligent sensor for grid fault detection;
  • Robotically controlled tree pruning mechanism.
