PROCESS ENGINEERING

MATWORKS is a dynamic and innovative firm, the mechanical industrial designing and building has been our field of expertise for years.

  • Thanks to our highly qualified staff and to an EXTREMELY FLEXIBLE STRUCTURE, we are able to support the Client throughout all the phases of a project, from the feasibility study to the final testing.
  • Our internal organization can offer a COMPLETE SUPPORT TO THE CLIENT in the managing process, if needed, and we can also provide support in dealing with third parties and in coordinating departments involved in a project. This can prove particularly convenient for a Client’s resources management.
  • The flexibility and the EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE acquired in a variety of industrial sectors allow us to deal open-mindedly with possible issues along the processes. We use our skills to strengthen the MOST INCLUSIVE COLLABORATION with all technical departments involved, promoting and developing the Client’s know-how.
  • GREAT RESULTS helped our Clients to solve process issues and to create the conditions for inhouse innovation.
  • Our designing process COMPLY WITH ALL EXISTING REGULATIONS and we can provide full support for writing handbooks and technical papers.

PRODUCTION LINES AND SINGLE MACHINES INTERVENTION

PRODUCTIon LINES AND SINGLE MACHINES FEASIBILITY STUDIES:

In this phase, we support the Client in ANALYZING ISSUES concerning the production process. Together with the Client, we verify the possibilities of solving the issues with the support of the already AVAILABLE MACHINES or with NEWLY DESIGNED MACHINES.

NEW PRODUCTion LINES AND MACHINES DESIGNING:

After carrying out the analysis of the plant or single machine FEASIBILITY, we proceed to the designing phase where the Client will be able to choose between CO-DESIGNING or AUTONOMOUS operative process.
The AUTONOMOUS PROCESS allows the Client to free inhouse resources and leave to our expertise the choice of components, materials, solutions and everything needed for the designing of the machine. The designing process is optimized based on the technical specifics defined through the feasibility study, always keeping an eye on COSTS, EASY MAINTENACE AND INTERVENTION, OPERATIONAL SIMPLICITY.
Throughout this phase we look for the most functional solutions, that, combined with our experience, allow us to get to the final result: a production line or machine project that can fully satisfy the Client’s expectations.
The designing is normally carried out using CAD systems shared with the Client.
In order to address particularly urgent projects, we can organize the designing platforms in a CO-DESIGN MODE. This way we can make the designing process more efficient either supporting the Client until the final output or finalizing it through an autonomous process phase.

SPECIAL MACHINE DESIGNING:

Under particular conditions, a Client might want to switch FROM MANUAL TO AUTOMATIC MODE, with relation to a production process phase, but the existent machines are not able to fulfil this need. In this particular situation we can design, after a thorough analysis of the process, a SPECIAL MACHINE.

EXISTING Production LINE and MACHINE ENGINEERING:

REDUCING PRODUCTION COSTS of a line or machine is widely required in the last years. After a thorough and accurate analysis, we break down the costs in order to offer solutions to REDUCE COSTS and IMPROVE PERFORMANCES AND RELIABILITY.
For a variety of reasons (initial project date, older technologies and so forth), the machines might use parts or systems that can be simplified and produced at a reduced cost. Those out-of-date components might even be substituted by some new standard ones available on the market. The same rationale can be applied to a production line, thanks to logistical, ergonomic and robotic intervention.

STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS:

In the early stages of designing it is fundamental to understand the performances of specific structures and mechanical parts under working conditions. In these cases, the Finite Element Method (FEM) supports us, through the designing process, in monitoring mechanical part deformation and the mechanical stress resistance. It also helps, in some situations, understand performances and breakdowns on existing machines and leading to a solution to the detected issues.
