In the technical sector in particular, developments are occurring at a rapid pace. So it is all the more important that ARCO stays up to speed with the latest innovations. Our Research & Development team focuses in particular on:
- Process optimization;
- Software development;
- Artificial intelligence developments.
Why is research important at ARCO?
Before the specialists at the Research & Development department can actually start developing, they first have to do some research. During this phase, not only do they focus their attention on materials and design, but they also investigate the technical specifications and, where necessary, any ergonomic factors. They also take into account the high standards that a product or service must meet in terms of safety and quality. Each and every one of these aspects need to be thoroughly researched to make sure that ARCO develops products that meet the specified needs or requirements.
Development at ARCO
Once the specialists at the Research & Development department have analysed the information in the research phase, they move on to the next phase: development. At ARCO, the transition from the research phase to the development phase primarily involves the production of various prototypes. These are the first test samples of a new product or service. If the prototypes meet all the set standards and requirements, and once they have been extensively tested in our simulation room, they can be put into production.
We want to share and provide access to as much of our knowledge as possible, including that generated by our Research & Development team. We do not want to help companies by making them dependent on ARCO, but by giving them the tools to move forward and keep improving their production processes. Besides investing money in devising and developing innovations, we also invest in sharing our ideas and knowledge.
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.’
