We recommend our automated industrial furnaces because with the control and combustion technology we supply:
So Maxterm combustion and control technology increases profits and reduces costs.
In terms of regenerative combustion systems with low NOx emissions, Maxterm ranks highly among Hungarian design and construction companies. We have installed a number of these systems for metallurgical applications. The advantage of regenerative combustion systems with low NOx emissions is that:
Of course, a smaller environmental footprint also has a significant impact on costs, since it can reduce environmental charges and can also help to mobilise all the resources available for the implementation of the investments to protect the environment. Our low NOx regenerative combustion systems are recommended for all metallurgical companies where technology operating costs and environmental protection are important.
Most furnace construction companies rebuild the old, technically obsolete furnace with a complete reconstruction. In contrast, Maxterm offers its customers:
Why does Maxterm do this, while for others it is not worth it?
For industrial equipment that has been produced with virtually no automation, there is often a need for retrofitting with automation. Maxterm is of course a partner in this. We have equipped many industrial furnaces and other industrial equipment with the most advanced control technology available today, which in the past were not fully automated. The results of such retrofit automation:
Maxterm engineers can design any control system in a short time. As the members of our engineering team are highly skilled and experienced engineers from different disciplines, we have no problem in producing designs that require a combination of expertise in several disciplines. In addition, software engineers have experience with most known control systems, so they can efficiently configure and program various PLCs, DCSs, advanced control equipment, data acquisition systems, Scada systems. The construction and maintenance of industrial IT systems is not a problem either, as we have trained experts for this.
Our construction team is made up of highly experienced technicians and skilled craftsmen, specially trained in the construction of industrial control and combustion installations. Our construction team has the right tools and equipment for the job. The tools used meet the quality standards that are common in the EU. The work is carried out in accordance with the quality management principles set out in Maxterm's quality policy statement. We pay special attention to safety during the work, so we prepare a safety plan before any construction work.
One of Maxterm's main strengths is that it not only works on projects, but also undertakes aftercare for the equipment once it has been built. (Of course, we undertake maintenance not only for the equipment we have built.) The maintenance of combustion plants and other related technological equipment is the main line of maintenance. Why maintenance by Maxterm is beneficial?
Maxterm has specialists who can put all kinds of industrial furnaces into operation and train the operating personnel to operate them efficiently. Commissioning is usually a stand-alone service when the client has the equipment built by a contractor (possibly his own team) who requires external assistance for commissioning. It is also common for a client to buy an old equipment from another company and want to have it installed by someone else. Maxterm is the best choice in this case. Our commissioning specialist goes to the site and starts up the equipment in cooperation with the contractor or the client. If something is broken or not working, he will fix it. If there is something our specialist can' t do on his own, he can of course rely on the other Maxterm experts. At the end of commissioning, the commissioner will of course also provide the necessary training for operators.
This service means that the client notifies us of the malfunction and Maxterm sends the right specialist to fix the problem. The specialist will study the problem, seek other help if necessary, using the resources of a secure background, and then solve the problem, restoring normal operations. Troubleshooting can be carried out within the framework of a maintenance contract and also on individual request. If there is a malfunction troubleshooting within the framework of a maintenance contract, then of course the availability period is also specified and mentioned in the contract. Malfunction troubleshooting by Maxterm therefore means solving problems quickly for the client, who can save lost production time.
Maxterm's production tracking systems ensure the client that:
Maxterm's software engineers are supported by technology-savvy engineers throughout the design and implementation of production tracking systems. The result will be a system that is positioned between company management systems and close-to-process (Scada, simple data collection systems) display systems. Maxterm's production tracking systems can also be connected to big-scale company management systems, enabling full integration in corporate IT.
Maxterm software engineers are familiar with most programmable control systems. The company is equipped with the necessary tools and software to program and configure these control systems. Configurations can be tested on our pilot or demonstration devices. We have purpose-built tools for simulating industrial systems. We offer this service not only to end-users, but also to contractor companies who do not have the necessary specialists but are faced with this type of task in the course of their work.
Since Maxterm has the financial and human resources to finance a project, we are happy to take on project management and general contracting. Maxterm naturally takes responsibility for the success of the project. This means that the client only needs to be in contact with Maxterm and Maxterm is responsible for the success of the project. For the client, this is advantageous because:
Maxterm's well-trained team of professionals is happy to help its clients implement various technological developments. Mutual cooperation speeds up development and reduces costs. Maxterm naturally undertakes to maintain the confidentiality of all such developments and confirms this by signing a confidentiality agreement. Co-development for Maxterm means building a mutually beneficial relationship with the Client. Maxterm aims to introduce state-of-the-art control technology through joint technological development and to integrate it as perfectly as possible into the client's system during development. Why is it worthwhile for the client to use Maxterm as a partner for technology development?
Maxterm undertakes the complete automation of all kinds of old or new glass raw material preparation, measuring and mixing systems. The advantage of automation is that operating equipment reduces the need for human resources and makes the technology more accurate. The desired parameters are kept automatically. If there is a problem, the system notifies the operator immediately. With a control system designed by Maxterm for this purpose, equipment that is spread over a large area, far apart but connected together, can operate as an integrated system. The operator has everything in the control room at his fingertips. At the heart of the control system is a technological knowledge-based control system, which also allows unattended operation. The operator is only needed in the event of a malfunction. Maxterm's control system for glass raw material preparation, measuring and mixing systems provides the client with:
Maxterm's maintenance team and engineers are well prepared to provide remote monitoring of industrial systems. Remote monitoring takes advantage of the possibilities of modern control and computing technology, so that the colleague on duty monitors the technology remotely and intervenes remotely if necessary. If remote intervention is not possible, he or she will notify the local operators or go to the site to fix the problem. This service is especially recommended for the tempering, upheating of furnaces and for the start-up of new technologies. For the client, this has several advantages:
