We develop industrial products, instruments and professional tools that are used in paper-factories, chemical plants, shopping malls, building sites, airports, etc.
The M-lance is an automated system for discharging reactors. The system reduces the down-time of the reactor by approximately half. Thanks to the M-lance, work in the reactor is much safer and only one quarter of the people are needed compared to manual discharging.
The device uses ultrasonic sound pulses to create an insight view of welds, thus making it possible to assess the quality of welds in a non-destructive manner. The measuring data is send by means of a pre-amp to an industrial laptop for analyses.
In cooperation with Volvo Construction Equipment we designed the L350I Hybrid, a concept study for a future successor of the L350F. The Volvo L350I Hybrid is a 52-tons wheel loader, designed to withstand the toughest operating conditions. The machine is equipped with an efficient Volvo diesel engine in combination with plug-in hybrid technology, offering at least 15% – 25% lower fuel consumption than its competitors.
The hybrid system includes powerful electric linear actuators, to replace hydraulic cylinders and the hydraulic pump. While lowering the load, electric energy can be regenerated by the same linear actuators. Braking will also result in energy regeneration, while accelerating is assisted by the electro motors. Short tasks can be done completely electrically, after which the batteries can be recharged with a fast charger.
When it comes to the interior, we have listened to the machine operators very well. During test-drives that we performed on several machines, we interviewed and observed drivers in their daily work.
Everything in the interior redesign has been focused on creating a peaceful, quite and comfortable space for the driver, with intuitive ergonomics and high quality materials, that help focus on driving responsibly fast, safely and sustainable.
Focus and concentration for the operator are translated in a high quality chair with most controls for driving and operating the machine integrated in the arm-rests.
The M-Ty is a handheld device attached to the M-Lance. While the M-Lance is carrying out a run, the operator performs a cross-check of the previous batch of pipes with the M-Ty. This way of working eliminates the tedious and time-consuming manual check that used to be necessary after unloading the reactor. This saves valuable turnaround time and removes potential faults.
The M-Ty measures with a constant airflow whether the tubes are completely emptied. If this is the case, a green marker appears and the operator closes the tube with a green cap. If the tube is not completely emptied, a red marker appears and the operator shields the tube with a red cap.
When finishing unloading, the top tube sheet is covered with green and some red caps. The red spots needs to be reworked, until all of the top sheet is green. This way the M-ty contributes to an efficient and secure unloading process.
This EAS system provides theft protection and at the same time monitors and analyses the flow of customers and customer behaviour in stores. It combines both real-time people counting, real-time inventory tracking and theft protection in a single ceiling mounted system.
The handling of paper machine fabrics and felts during a machine stop can be a hard job. The Capto helps make the installation of a new felt or fabric a safer job. Forming fabrics are expensive and delicate; press felts, dryer or canvas fabrics can be cumbersome, stiff or heavy. As such each media can be difficult to grab and pull into the machine.
Time pressure and high temperatures mean that the working conditions are not always ideal. The Capto clamp eases the process by making it a less straining activity.
By means of relatively simple design solutions concrete drillers would gain on average about 2 hours per week, which makes tens of thousands of euro’s savings per year for an average company with 4 drilling-employees. The product has been successfully patented.
