Our technical and sales teams take care of the engineering, manufacture, project management and monitoring of your installations. We deliver complete transfer and dosing lines designed in accordance with your needs.
In constant contact with every agri-food sector, the APIA Technologie experts visit your plant in person in order to gain an understanding of your objectives and to work with you to develop the best implementation strategy.
An in-depth understanding of your on-site operations and your objectives is paramount for the optimum end result. We work with you on-site to study the focuses for rationalisation of your powder circuit and to develop the best implementation strategy according to your expectations.
At this stage, samples of the ingredients requiring conveying are analysed in order to best identify behaviour and constraints.
Food products are living products. Their behaviour in an industrial situation may differ from that of a single sample. Every powder requiring transfer or dosing has its own individual characteristics: it may be fragile and poses attrition concerns, it may be sensitive to particle segregation, or to temperature.
Do you want to check that the proposed solution will keep its promises? Or launch a pilot production run? Then our test laboratory is at your disposal. In our laboratory, we create a full-scale reproduction of the anticipated handling cycle under operating conditions that are as close as possible to reality.
These tests thus validate the correct configuration of the flexible mechanical transfer system as well as the desired performances. Do you want to test a solution at your own facilities? Apia Technologie also offers solutions for the provision of equipment.
You will enjoy the services of a dedicated project manager from the APIA Technologie design office. From technical design to the commissioning of the installation, he or she will be your sole contact.
Our technical engineers define the technical specifications and design the bespoke equipment A detailed implementation plan is developed. The functional analysis describes the product flows in precise detail as well as the operation of the automated systems.
The APIA Technologie technical team then supervises the manufacture and acceptance of the equipment. The project manager assembles the installation links and verifies their conformity.
With complete transparency, you will also enjoy the benefit of our network of peripheral equipment manufacturer partners. In its capacity as project manager, APIA guarantees the correct operation and performance of the line in its entirety.
Finally, your dedicated project manager coordinates the delivery and on-site assembly of your turnkey installation, in collaboration with you and your local partners.
He or she visits your factory in person to oversee the commissioning of the equipment, to accept the performance of your new powder transfer installation and to train your operators.
If correctly used and well maintained, the flexible mechanical transfer technology will prove extremely robust, reliable and cost-effective. In addition to monitoring the equipment, we also support the scaling of your production facilities over the long-term.
APIA Technologie installations are guaranteed for 1 year. We also offer bespoke preventive maintenance contracts.
Furthermore, our electronic archives of every project since 1992 constitute a valuable memory of our installations. They allow maintenance and optimisation of existing systems and processes at the lowest possible cost.
