Some interesting examples of our approach

How we solved some very pressing questions

Operational issues:
Large industrial plants that pose difficult access and maintenance issues
The TÈAS Solution:
Reduce clutter and size of the assembly line
Improve access
Streamline maintenance
Simplify installation in terms of time and costs
Project Description:
The main operational problem before TÈAS intervened was the unwieldy size of the rotary table supporting the folding machine for condenser coil assembly lines.

At the specific request of a customer particularly sensitive to this issue, and working with the TÈAS Soft Clusters® methodology, we designed and produced an innovative and highly ergonomic solution (discover our HEAD® approach).

By taking a totally innovative approach to the existing design parameters, TÈAS was able to overcome the historical biases of the design.

We eliminated the folding machine’s complex and cumbersome rotary table, replacing it with a more agile and lightweight rotating trolley.

By reducing the overall dimensions and simplifying the machinery, we made it completely accessible from all sides providing the customer with a more reliable and more efficient, lightweight, easy-to-maintain solution.

The characteristics of this new system also allowed us to immediately lower secondary costs. In fact, the reduced overall size of the system offers significant savings in areas such as transportation, installation and maintenance, as well as providing the company with extra space.

Describing this experience at an industry workshop, TÈAS generated new business solutions by specifically addressing the best methods for improving operating production plants where similar issues of maintenance and access had become critical weaknesses.

Operational issues:
High operating costs of conventional punch and die or milling systems given today’s continuous demand for flexibility and differentiation in numerous production models.
The TÈAS Solution:
Integrated laser cutting systems radically increasing flexibility while lowering management costs and eliminating modifications on the production line.
Project Description:
Since the year 2000, design trends and corresponding business strategies in the refrigeration industry, especially in the consumer sector, have massively expanded the production of plastic refrigerator-freezer cells in any multitude of forms and colors.

This trend requires project and production phases to anticipate and furnish thermoformed cells with more efficient perforations in a variety of geometric configurations.

These perforations are used structurally, both to mount additional components and also to distribute the thermal content with the efficiency required to achieve high energy-saving classifications.

Modern marketing continuously creates and brings to market a wide range of new products and models, exponentially increasing the number of possible variations expected from a contemporary production facility.

In recent years, traditional cutting systems have been overwhelmed by these demands and find themselves unable to meet these new, expected production results.

The characteristics of mechanical cutting systems, especially punch matrix systems, dedicated to single models are extremely inflexible and, due to the consumption of tools and the continual adjustments they require, they generate higher operating costs.

Moreover, the traditional systems require dedicated cutting machines for the multitude of patterns to be processed and consequently they require additional operating space.
Combining TÈAS White, our specific experience in the field of refrigeration, and the in-depth knowledge behind our TÈAS Laser cutting technology, we have developed an integrated laser cut system capable of incorporating and satisfying clients’ last-minute designs into the production process at no additional cost.

This revolutionary system created by TÈAS uses an articulated arm to guide radius from a CO2 laser source to the cutting head controlled by an anthropomorphic robot. The complete product includes a protective enclosure with a dedicated aspiration and waste removal system.

With this system, our customers are free to produce any new cell model simply by intervening in the software defining the machine’s production process.

All perforation parameter values (shape and position) are stored in a database and are instantly accessible at any point in any specific work cycle.

In short, a single flexible, integrated and programmable batch production system for the entire range of models required.

These advantages optimize the customer’s initial investment by affording substantial benefits in terms of:
– Design and production flexibility;
– Eliminating management costs for consumption of punches, cutting cutters and other consumables;
– Reducing costs involved in the continuous changes and adjustments required in traditional cutting systems.
