EFW® TECHNOLOGY

The Effective Filament Winding® Technology is more than just a better way to design a complete GRP manufacturing Plant. It is the first 100 % analytical approach in the filament winding composite market. But it is not only about the pure technology. The most important part is actually the mental process, it is more like a method.  

The objective of this method is to learn how to be effective because only then you can be efficient.

It helps you perform the next steps:

  • Implement the measurement of the correct data within your industrial process;
  • Clearly define the results you need to achieve;
  • Perform reverse engineering;
  • Correct the activities that do not allow you to achieve the goal;
  • Re-start the process optimization loop again.

 

BENEFITS

The implementation of the EFW® technology in your GRP manufacturing plant allows you to have a perfect understanding of the project requirements, to fine-tune your design and perform the right actions in the correct sequence.

Moreover, implementing the EFW® technology will also help you achieve other benefits, such as: 

  • Implement the missing information for a correct GRP industry feasibility study, helping the investor with analyses of the critical elements and to define the most reasonable technology and production range for the production plant.
  • Identify the success of the company as the value of the product and the ability of execution as defined by the market demand, this leading to more satisfied customers.
  • Optimize each design and production phase, reducing operational costs and maximizing profits.
  • Shorten cycle to the analytical approach applied to production and logistics.
  • Focus on the optimization loops for continuous improvement. 
  • Increase cash on hand.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONVENTIONAL AND TOPFIBRA EFW® TECHNOLOGY

In the comparison below you can see the difference between the conventional and the TOPFIBRA EFW® technology.

CONVENTIONAL

– Rely on locked pipe recipes;

– Absence of process parameters controls;

– Lack of optimization;

– Stagnant approaches;

– Unpredictable costs;

– Financial losses.

TOPFIBRA

– Reduce costs and waste;

– Dynamic sensors;

– Smart feedback algorithms integrated into EFW® Lines;

– Data driven EFW® Methodology;

– Accurately track, anticipate and control all risk factors;

– Avoid time and money loss (investors);

– Improve and increase production flow and final technical specifications.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The EFW® technology involves the creation of a flow diagram (a map), describing each and every step in order to avoid any disruption in the complete process.

There are three phases of the EFW® TECHNOLOGY

PHASE 1 - APPLY THE EFW® TECHNOLOGY

APPLY THE EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING ® TECHNOLOGY FROM THE FIRST DAY ONWARDS FOR YOUR CFW MANUFACTURING PLANT.

The EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING ® TECHNOLOGY allows you to simulate and choose the production strategy that is going to be the most profitable one for you in the medium and long-term.

PHASE 2 - IMPROVE THE WORKING PHASES

IMPROVE THE WORKING PHASES THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS CRITICAL FOR THE PROFIT OPTIMIZATION.

Applying our EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING® TECHNOLOGY, you will be able to detect and prevent these losses more rapidly, thanks to the EFW Key Performance Indicators and EFW Overall Effectiveness Indicators.

PHASE 3 - BOOST YOUR PROFITS

FINE TUNE YOUR INDUSTRIAL PROCESS TO INCREASE YOUR PROFIT EVEN MORE.

To immediately optimize your profit in the Filament Winding Industry, you need to have the perfect control of your industrial process, altering it when needed, and recording all the adjustments.
