Manufacturing a machine is done in several steps. Our colleagues explain how your machine takes shape: from concept study to commissinoing.
Step 1: Concept study
Having a custom-made machine built starts with a question that has never been asked before, a first chat, an empty sheet and… a scribble. This concept study is the foundation of everything that follows.
Step 2: Mechanical development
We draw the mechanical set-up. In this step, our mechanical engineers convert the ideas from the concept study into a design.
Step 3: Electrical development
The link between the 3D and 2D CAD design from the previous step and the electrical control system. Our hardware engineers bridge the gap between the mechanical and control engineering aspects.
Step 4: Project management
We now have a perfect view of what we are going to make. Time to roll out the further plan of action. You can count on our project managers.
Step 5: Manufacturing of parts
Some parts we buy, others are custom made by our CNC workstations here in our workshop.
Step 6: Mechanical assembly
The actual construction of the machine. Part by part, our mechanical engineers assemble your machine
Step 7: Electrical assembly
Panel builing, machine cabling and wiring. Our electricians provide the power to make everything move.
Step 8: Software development
Our software engineers write the code that tells each machine part what its role is in the whole. After programming the PLCs, a second translation follows: from machine language to information that is understandable for the operator.
Step 9: Machine delivery
Does everything work as it should? Then we disassemble the machine here, rebuild it on site. Our automation engineers continue until the installation meets the requirements of our customer.
