Visit us in Düsseldorf at the trade fair Aluminium 2018 (09 – 11 October 2018).

An achievement made of solidarity

2017 marks an important technological turning point for GAP Engineering. We have fully migrated our GAPCast to a Siemens TIA-Portal solution. With its significant benefits, we are now ready to tackle the challenges of modernization in the futur.

The new EMC casting machine from our customer AMAG Austria Metall AG is the first to benefit from this progress. Similar to the previous installation, we took the opportunity to enhance our skills in terms of robustness and mechanical safety .

Our entire team laid their hands to work during the development and the different phases of commissioning.

We offer a new variant of the GLS U40

The GAP Level Sensor U40 is available with an extended range of 40 mm.

Specialization in energy monitoring

CH

With the help of the powerful Siemens software “Powermanager”, the energy consumption of a building can be visualized and optimized. Customers can evaluate energy measures and localize faults quickly. The software can be adapted to the customer’s needs and can be expanded with new devices at any time. Our reference projects were made at Nestlé, UBS, CHUV and others.

A little step on Rockwell, a great step for GAP

In 2016 Constellium Valais SA commissioned us to renovate an obsolete casting machine, which gave us the opportunity to migrate and enhance our standard, which is initially based on Siemens S7 combined with the Siemens WinCC supervisory system. This new machine runs with Allen Bradley controllers and drives from Rockwell Automation.

GSH – GAP Spout Heating

20160921_133302

 

 

In casting machines, the spout through which the liquid metal arrives must first reach a certain temperature before production starts.

In collaboration with one of our suppliers, we have developed a complete automated system that evenly distributes heat to each spout.

 

 

 

 

Evolution of our Test Bench

We have revitalized our product allowing a user to verify the functionalities of our GLS devices by adding the possibility to validate the movements conformity of our GLA devices.

We have integrated a more efficient HMI for a better comfort for the user. The liquid aluminum simulation compartment has also been replaced with a linear motor of a greater accuracy.
