Paper processing facilities entail unique challenges and harsh environments. Nutec has been involved with more than three dozen studies and design projects for a global manufacturer of specialty paper projects, covering all aspects of their operation including cranes, beams, tanks, agitators, digesters, platforms, hoists, and more. We also designed a new process for wood knots.
For almost two decades Nutec has been providing “on call” type design and construction services to a major automotive manufacturer. More than 1,000 task orders have been completed, entailing such work as utility upgrades and replacements, Arc Flash consulting, industrial wastewater piping and pumping, assembly line rebalancing, Lock Out/Tag Out implementation, project management, plant engineering, CADD facility services, and much more.
Often the most challenging projects are those that entailed small but complicated facility/process upgrade projects. The simple approach would be to begin with a clean slate, but that’s not an option. This automotive supplier commissioned Nutec to visualize the most effective approach to create a new mezzanine, clean rooms, and powder coat booths within existing production space, while also modernizing the monorail and carriers.
This New Jersey-based client retained Nutec to design and install a new bulk conveying system on an accelerated timeframe. The result is a facility that can transport 125,000 pounds of product per day, transferring liquid product.
Although manufacturing represents a significant portion of the American economy, there are countless older facilities with inefficient processes and poorly designed production lines. For this Fortune 500 firm, Nutec was asked to provide assembly line layout and workstation design, while also designing custom carts and tools to aid in assembly of the products.
Sometimes the most critical projects for a manufacturing client entail facility upgrades to accommodate new production. In this case, our client wanted to add a new process line in a space not designed for manufacturing. We first had to “virtually construct” the new line to verify proof of concept and provide a detailed visual that allowed us, in collaboration with our client, to optimize the layout of the new line.
When this European firm decided to create a new consolidated manufacturing and administration facility in New England, they commissioned Nutec to create a high-profile North American headquarters by renovating an existing, vacant building. In addition to Class A office space, the project entailed new manufacturing and assembly areas for the production of high-quality firearms.
