Mechanical Design & Industrialisation

  • Product Design and Development: Mechanical design (including 3D models and 2D drawings) for manufacturing (constructive project development) and monitoring of workshop tasks.
  • Manufacturing Processes Assessment: Machining, stamping, moulding, plastic injection, etc.
  • Product Industrialisation: Complete manufacturing plant development/ scale-up from prototype to industrial level, layout definition, machinery/equipment selection and/or design.
  • Rapid Prototyping: FDM 3D printer available for design validation (adapting designs for printing and printing with different materials), State-of-the-Art 3D printer assessment technologies and silicone mould that can be used for detailed, small-series production and development.
  • Commissioning & Test Support: Highly qualified team with proven experience in commissioning and testing of industrial installations.

Industrial Automation

  • Chemical, Industrial & Biological Processes Design and/or Optimization: Characterisation and selection of instrumentation (sensors, analysers, valves, flowmeters, etc..) and sizing/selection of side equipment (pumps, blowers, compressors, vessels, etc..), design/review of Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID).
  • Process Requirements Definition: Operational conditions, system specifications, and control rules for optimal conditions and safe operation.
  • Full Industrial Automation: Process specification (electronic input-outputs requirements), module selection (control modules, HMI, I/O modules, power supply modules, etc.), PLC software programming based on predefined process requirements, SCADA design and programming for Graphic User Interface (GUI), electrical design and full development of control cabinets.
  • Commissioning & Test Support: Highly qualified team with proven experience in commissioning and testing of industrial installations.

Finite Element Analysis and Simulation

  • Evaluation and Analysis of potential products to be developed by means of simulated expected behaviour with real multiphysics models:

 · Heat Transfer:

  Convection/conduction/radiation/ phase change. Other heat sources (ex: ultrasonic energy)

  Joule Heating (Electrical Modules)

 · Fluidics:

  Microfluidics/ Porous media/ Turbulence/Pipe flow

 · Acoustics:

  Ultrasounds, pressure acoustic fields

 ·  Chemical:

· Batteries and fuel cells/ Corrosion/ Electrochemistry

· Stress and mechanical design

· Static/ Fatigue

  Magnetic and Electric Fields:

· Simulating electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields in static and low-frequency applications.

  • Assessment for product development after evaluating outputs from the models.

Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)

  • Environmental impacts assessment associated with all the stages of a product, process, or service lifecycle (from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, and disposal or recycling).

          LCA includes:

  • Compiling an inventory of relevant energy and material inputs and environmental releases.
  • Evaluating the potential environmental impact associated with identified inputs and releases.
  • Interpreting the results to help you make a more informed decision.
