Innovation for the large-scale retailers

How to innovate in a well estabilished field with a high level of automation.

In the large-scale retail field there are a lot of different solutions for pallettizer and depallettizer systems and the technology is well known.

The question here is then: how can we innovate in such a well estabilished field, with a high level of automation?

The answers can span in a vaste number of aspects related to the technologies used in this field, like new grippers, collaborative robots, smart solenoids, … but why not taking into consideration also a review of the way in which the automated system, and their PLCs, are programmed?

I-Therm project

I-Therm project

Waste heat recovery systems can offer significant energy savings and substantial greenhouse gas emission reductions, with a market projected to exceed €45,0 billion by 2018.

The overall aim of the I-Therm EU project, started in 2015 and reaching its conclusion on december 2020, was to develop and demonstrate technologies and processes for efficient and cost effective heat recovery from industrial facilities in the temperature range 70°C to 1000°C and the optimum integration of these technologies with existing energy systems or electricity generated from recovering exceeding heat. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 680599.

Synesis participates to the project with the role of system integrator, focusing on aspects related to control and monitoring of the developed systems. In particular, we are involved in the development of the pilot installations of the Trilateral Flash System (TFC) for low (70°C to 200°C) temperature waste heat sources at the TATA STEEL UK industrial site and the Supercritical Carbon Dioxide System (sCO2) for temperatures above 200°C at the Brunel University London.
