Beyond Engineering

Smart Specialisation Strategy
Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies

Innovative startup consisting of engineers and specialist technicians who design, develop and market innovative devices.

The various passions of the founders are reflected in the sectors in which Beyond Engineering operate:

  • drones
  • food transportation
  • industrial automation

Our mission is always to look beyond, and thanks to engineering and careful collaboration, to bring more and more advanced products to the market.


From 2014 we have been collaborating with DTU Space (Technical University of Denmark). This experience has led to the development of constantly updated algorithms and methods which allow for fast aerodynamic design of drone aircraft. We are currently developing a MAV (mini aerial vehicle) for professional use that is amongst the lightest in the world, with a take-off weight of less than 300 grams. Solving the particular aerodynamic issues that arise when working with these dimensions and speeds has led to use more and more advanced materials.

This device is of particular interest as it has created a special category within civil aviation regulations, wherein users are not legally required to possess a certificate.

Among the uses of this drone are:

  • civil protection and territorial inspection and control
  • roof thermography for monitoring heat dispersion
  • surveillance in the private sphere


The take-away food market is booming, especially if you consider the new aggregated restaurant platforms, such as JustEat, Deliveroo, MyMenu and so on. To modernise the transportation of hot foods, we have created a device called Hotbox, which is currently in the design phase.

Our Hotbox keeps food at a controlled temperature during transit whilst simultaneously lowering moisture inside the transport chamber.


Our added value in the field of industrial automation is to directly and uniquely address both customer requirements and plant assembly. At Beyond Engineering we believe strongly in collaboration. It is a core business value and evident in the ten-year experience of one of our partners, which has brought forth a wide network of excellent collaborators in the Emilia-Romagna territory.

We offer:

  • analysis and feasibility studies of potential solutions
  • highly customisable ad hoc design based on customer requirements
  • information concerning financing possibilities, tax credit, super- and hyper-amortisation, possible public tenders
  • plant assembly, installation and testing
  • operational training for staff

The strength of Beyond Engineering is the fluid handling of the product. By experimenting with all kinds of new technologies, we can create industrial solutions suitable for all component and plant applications within the manufacturing and processing industries.

We can also offer industrial plans for machine tools feeding, mechanical assembly, packaging, labelling, storage, batching, palletising, etc.

Speed ​​and efficiency on any type of operation are integrated through the use of anthropomorphic arms in robotic islands, created and studied according to your basic industrial needs.

Beyond Engineering was funded by Qonsult S.p.A. and is part of the network of companies that collaborate with the Gtechnology Scientific Research Foundation.
