Excellence in Propellers and Shaft Lines since 1919
A Family Legacy Driving Innovation
Cutting-Edge Foundry and Design
Eliche Radice’s foundry, with an annual capacity of 600 tonnes, is the result of continuous technological evolution, combining decades of experience with ongoing research. Throughout its 100+ year history, Eliche Radice has tackled and resolved numerous propulsion challenges to the satisfaction of its diverse clientele across various naval sectors.
Each propeller project is the culmination of extensive direct experimentation, conducted in collaboration with leading research institutes and naval tanks worldwide. This vast data archive serves as the foundation for the calculation programs used to determine the parameters of each project and the production drawing.
Eliche Radice’s planning department develops these calculation programs, enabling them to offer the most efficient solutions in terms of blade count, area disk (DAR), and pitch/diameter (P/D) ratios while considering factors such as efficiency, noise, vibrations, and cavitation.
