Previous projects - examples


Development of a moulding process for environmentally friendly plasticized products, 2015
Process development and engineering were performed for a Scandinavian company in order to establish a production process for products made from environmentally friendly plasticized PVC.

Process development in plastics flooring, 2015
Pilot test runs were carried out in the Leadco test center in Kungälv for a European manufacturing company. The purpose was to generate the necessary knowledge to support a choice of production technology.

Formulation and process development in WPC (Wood Plastic Composite), 2014
Pilot test runs were carried out in the Leadco test center in Kungälv for a European manufacturing company. The purpose was to develop a new product and to propose a suitable production technology. 

Pre-study regarding alternative production technologies, 2014
A comparison between (1) changing to a new technology, and (2) upgrading the existing technology was performed for a Scandinavian producer of high performance plastic parts. 

Upgrading of existing production equipment, 2013
Supplementary equipment units were engineered and manufactured for a sheet material producer in Scandinavia. The equipment was implemented to reduce changeover times, increased yield, and facilitate easier handling of semi-fabricates in the production process.
 
Formulation and process development in plastics flooring, 2013
Laboratory work and pilot test runs in the Leadco test center in Kungälv were performed for a European manufacturing company. The project also included test runs by well-known machine suppliers and a pre-study to identify the best production process for a completely new flooring product.

New production equipment, 2013
New equipment units, inluding process control were engineered and manufactured for a Swedish producer of specialized profiles. The equipment was implemented to increase automation and give better possibilities for producing customised products.

Study regarding potential raw material savings, 2012
A study evaluating different alternatives to reach a more efficient production process was carried out for a manufacturing company in Sweden. A large potential to save raw materials in a critical section of the production process was identified (and has now been implemented).

Pre-study regarding a manufacturing process, 2011 
The study included test runs in lab-/pilot scale, designing of process layouts, investment calculations, and operational cost calculations for the production of a bio-based sheet material.

New warehouse for flooring rolls, 2010

Engineering, manufacturing, installation and start-up, including control functions, were performed to establish a new warehousefor 6000 standing rolls of plastic flooring material was made for a manufacturing company in Sweden.

New flooring collection and extension of production line, 2008
A new unique flooring product with a great number of colours and possibilities for customized appearance was developed for a manufacturing company in Sweden. The project also included engineering of new equipment units, modifying the existing production line, and start-up of the complete production process.
