Successful innovation, guaranteed
We believe it is important to check whether the offered solution actually meets the set requirements. As such, our innovation centre has a complete test facility, which tests every practical situation and thus ensures that the realized solution also delivers the desired quality, capacity, and data in your own production environment.
The benefits of having our own innovation centre:
- New possibilities and technologies developed on the basis of customer requirements;
- Tests for increasing capacity, individual parts, and entire machines;
- Quality tests;
- Software development;
- Product demonstrations for customers;
- Simulation room;
- 3D printers;
- Internal training programmes and courses.
Driven by a desire to innovate
Rather than seeing innovation as just a part of our organization, we see it as one of our driving forces. That’s why the innovation centre is not a stand-alone department; it’s interwoven throughout the entire organization. Our innovation team ensures that all ARCO employees are always up to speed with new methods and developments.
They organize training sessions and courses to keep employees’ knowledge up to date. That way, they can advise and help our customers as best as possible and with the latest methods.
Investing in innovation
Innovation is embedded in the DNA of our organization, so we believe it is only natural to invest in it. Every year, we invest 4% of our budget in new innovations and methods. We test all new innovations down to the very last detail, even though that sometimes takes a lot of time and energy. Continuing the process and pushing boundaries is how you make progress.
Innovation is the future
ARCO has grown over the years by continuing to develop, by not standing still. By daring to dream, but at the same time by keeping both feet firmly on the ground. Our innovation centre is an indispensable part of the ARCO organization; it keeps us ahead of the game. Not only by developing new machines, but also with our existing lines. After delivery, we are committed to keeping your solutions up to date by providing excellent service and maintenance support – always with innovation in mind.
What our customers have to say
‘When you both believe in solutions, great results come naturally.’
‘ARCO has simplified our production process. Thanks to the comprehensive package of services and the customized solutions, ARCO is the ideal supplier for us.’
‘Looking back on this project, we have to say that the cooperation with ARCO was very smooth. We joined forces and implemented the best solution for our production line. Where we previously used many manual and labour-intensive processes, we now have a fully automated system that enables us to work very efficiently.’
‘Thanks to ARCO’s installation, we can do the same work with fewer operators. The system ensures a faster throughput of products and the best possible conditions for our operators. ’
‘Because we worked hand in hand with ARCO, everything was developed in consultation and the mega silo bunker perfectly suits our needs. It was an enjoyable collaboration that produced good results.’
‘We greatly appreciated ARCO’s ability to respond quickly. But not only that, they demonstrated exceptional creativity when devising the solution and the various test set-ups that they developed to test the design. The close cooperation between ARCO and ourselves facilitated the successful implementation of this particular packaging line.’
‘We know ARCO as a no-nonsense company that believes in workable and affordable solutions. This is what sets ARCO apart from other companies. They also have all the necessary knowledge in-house to create a strong and efficient line. We don’t know what the future holds, but we will certainly be happy to work together again.’
‘ARCO’s weighing line has had a major impact on our production. Our new system cuts product losses by up to 6%. It was a successful project and a rewarding collaboration.’
‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
