INDUSTRIAL SYSTEMS DESIGN &
serie of articles program
consists of modern industrial systems automated
or semi-automated development
and adapted to the quick change of products
inside the same production line, including FMS– Flexible
Manufacturing Systems, or industrial cell
systems and Rapid Products Development, rapid prototyping
Inside these concepts new several raw materials, processes,
design and technologies are proposed in our international
partnerships with researchers, Institutions and
development centers, engineering and industrial design
companies , industrial systems
design and raw materials manufacturers.
A great range of products
is accessible in partnerships and available for immediate
production, may possibly
include molds tools and complete systems
Information links are provided
about all proposed themes.
INDUSTRY MAIN TRENDS
main parameters for the current
industrial development, it can
be defined two main
axes as trends from the last
¤ FMS – Flexbile
¤ Industrial Systems without own industrial facilities
can be mentioned, but that are composed mainly
inside trends of ramifications as Petroleum,
Chemistry, Mechanics of Precision.
¤ Projeto Agro-Industrial Bambu______________________ - Commodities
Labgraph Technologies's team developed complete Agri-industrial project for the Bamboo, from the agricultural development, types, areas, economical-financial plan, pay back and analysis of risks to the principal industrial system of Bamboo for wood, complete employment of residues and sub-products, to the markets study and joined values.
With a detailed industrial project and very well documented plan of products, process and market, an efficient Business-Plan the Bamboo is surely the best maintainable commoditie of this section and with the recognition of better carbon absorption of the vegetable kingdom.
All the argument of the project, based in wide international and national sources, proves the adoption of options and strategies, recommends the investment, pay-back and high joined value, ally to the high safety of the enterprise. Brazil is seen in the world literature as the best area for Bamboo development, same if the origin is China.

FMS - FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS
a FMS is defined as an integrated and automated production
process equipment, normally automated machines with numeric
control and equipped with
quick tool change ability, (b)
material handling equipment including transfer
lines or conveyor belts, forklifts, elevators,
automated guided vehicles (AGVS) as well as
automated storage and inventory handling systems
such as automated storage and retrieval
(c) sophisticated computerized communication and control systems integrating
process and material handling equipment, and
(d) a modern maintenance support structure that can bring the system
quickly back to normal after equipment failure.
FMS is designed mainly for the existence
of multiple production lines inside the same facility,
or even for the fast change of production lines. FMS for
its properties adapts mainly for the industrial suppliers
working for third-parties, and they are especially
endowed with versatile systems capable to comprehend
an extensive production range inside a domain, as assembling,
plastics production, chemical, agro-industry, machining
and mechanical assembling, involving even finishing

a project funded by International Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA) and IPEN Nuclear Energy Research Institute.

automated conversion of ingredients addition.
Fig. 2 (center) represents the FMS plant including a
system where packaging recipients inside the mold cavities
(interchangeable magazine) serves as mold shape for Hydrogel.
The packaging systems is integrated to the process.

The decision-making is more reliable, but it holds
more centralized consequences and responsibilities.
STAFF & SKILLS
The nature and character of the

Starting from the establishment of a reliable Intranet/Internet
portal, the actions of the team lead using this tool
to interact among information agencies/institutions (marketing,
consultants, analysts), services (Design, engineering,
prototyping, molds and tools), producers (industrial
suppliers) and distribution.
Effectively the development
stage doesn't settle down on a sequential way, but intercalated,
compelling to multiple
tasks during the development period.
The model establishes above all horizontal structures
than vertical, or meaning all the team members shall
interact in the decisive process; in reality the model
demonstrates in the outline, it even imposes the interaction
among the several suppliers (services, goods and consultants).
The principal net benefits of this structure it is the
elimination of the periodic flotation (seasonality),
maintaining an increasing evolution of the profitability,
and suspending acquisitions when the market is reduced
without implicating in maintaining a structure of workforce,
facilities, machines and equipments. Other benefits may
be Improved use of existing resources, return on investment,
and research capability.
