Advanced technology, production capacity and energy savings: the cornerstones of DPS Solving’s production

DPS Solving is tenacious in always looking towards the future, ever focusing its vision on the satisfaction of its customers and respect for the environment.

In this spirit and in line with the 2020 Investment Plan, a series of machinery and equipment were installed and tested this February in the Matelica production division. Able to increase production strength by 30%, they further safeguard both individual safety and the environment. This investment of more than 300,000 euro involves the entire DPS Solving production chain.

The new TOYO 450T entirely-electric press, the fifth production line to come along, reconfirms the leaning towards “Made in Japan” that has long been synonymous with a guarantee of quality for the electrical components. This mechanical prodigy combined with electronics accelerates production, rendering it even more flexible and timely, in the face of the ever-increasing demand for supports, without renouncing energy savings and the safety of the workstations aboard the press.

The press could not forsake automation, hence the arrival of the latest-generation Cartesian manipulator, the Compact 3 that flanks the Compact 1 mounted on the NB 250T hybrid press in 2018. This concentrate of technology boasts a robotic device equipped with high-precision mechanical arms, which unwaveringly collect printed items from inside the press to place on the conveyor belt passing by at operator height, preventing the need for human presence near the machines in operation.

Thus production automation is complete, resulting in much faster assembly and packaging and extremely safe processing.

This first round of investments is completed by the centralised suction/transport system to automatically distribute polypropylene to the various presses, protecting the order and cleanliness of the entire production division, as well as operator safety. Hence, through the suction unit connected to the range of pipes that comprise the unit, the polypropylene reaches the presses by availing of a single storage point, eliminating manual handling and the need for bags of raw materials being deposited near each press.
