Assembly and test systems
Meeting today’s needs while anticipating tomorrow’s requirements
We manufacture assembly and test systems to improve production processes.
Our starting point is our customers’ needs. Our aim is to meet them with assembly and test systems promoting the improvement of production processes. To achieve this, we adopt a holistic vision and organise the workflow preserving those activities that generate value while reducing any waste of resources, in line with lean manufacturing principles.
Systems are tailored according to the real present needs and reconfigurable over time.
We combine sophisticated technologies with that typical Italian tailoring spirit to create bespoke high-performance systems.
For us every customer is unique: product and production characteristics, investment plans, and priorities are specific to each of them. We start by listening to our customer and appointing a multidisciplinary team that supports them from the initial study to the installation of the machine to after-sales assistance.
On request, we can assist our customer even in earlier stages till the co-design of the end product and the production process. In this case, we adopt an integrated perspective to analyse from the beginning the industrialisation cycle and to optimise product and systems in terms of quality, time and production costs.
Needs can change as well as markets, trends, technologies and regulations. Therefore, thanks to highly modular hardware and software design, our systems are not only high-performance but also easily adaptable to changing needs. They consist of a series of interconnected standard functional units that can be freely combined and reconfigured for different purposes. Our customers are thus able to manage resources dynamically to achieve sustainable growth over time.
Our systems can be easily reconfigured to process not just a single product but entire families of products.
Our systems can be adapted, even automatically, to different production conditions, changing their performance according to the desired investment and the expected targets.
Thanks to their flexible design, our lines can be reconfigured over time to adapt to different production needs.
We work adhering to a sustainable 4.0 model, focusing on aspects and technologies offering the most practical and useful application results for our customers.
Modularity, reconfigurability, interoperability, high information availability: we already started exploring these fields many years ago, thanks to some regional (Mesatron) and European (EUPASS, IDEAS, OpenMOS) projects.
This is why we feel perfectly at ease with the fourth industrial revolution, equipped with an expertise mix enabling us to influence this change.
We manufacture systems that are already amongst the functional goods for transforming businesses in line with Industry 4.0, according to the criteria of hyper amortisation set out by the 2018 Italian Budget Law.
At the same time, we are developing new features, driven by the idea that technology can help humanity continuously improve processes and productivity.
Flexibility has always been the hallmark of our systems. We are currently strengthening it by adopting a modular approach: we design and manufacture each machine using standard functional units that can be selected, configured and interconnected according to customer’s requirements.
This makes the machine highly adaptable: it can be swiftly and easily reconfigured when production types and volumes change with no resource waste.
But it does not end here. The modular structure enables the acquisition of detailed data about the system: performance (KPI), anomalies and errors are detected for each unit. This means more accurate and efficient maintenance and diagnostics.
Predictive maintenance is a pillar of Industry 4.0: by monitoring and analysing a machine’s state of health, it is possible to schedule its maintenance accurately before the onset of any fault that could cause serious productivity decrease.
Our “Impose” (Intelligent Masmec PrOgnostic SystEm) diagnostic system aims exactly at diagnosing well in advance the onset of faults and malfunctions, recommending the replacement or maintenance of components at risk, thus minimising a machine’s downtime. It is a physical plugin that can be easily installed even in pre-existing systems and its strength is its modular structure enabling the implementation of several diagnostic algorithms.
High accessibility and manageability of process information is crucial for systems efficiency; it enables operators to control functionality and make more timely and accurate decisions, as is the case with predictive maintenance.
We have developed a web-based interface enabling each device connected to the web and equipped with a browser to connect with the system and show in real time production data, wear and tear and technical documentation.
To make data even more usable, we are developing a specific mobile device equipped with an advanced vision system capable of automatically recognising components, single stations and parts of the system and acquiring all available data in real time.
The device is a modular physical plugin, thus it can be adapted and scaled according to needs.
