Design and Innovation:
The Pyrena has been developed with sophisticated methods of three-dimensional design. Inramik says, “The simulations made by the R&D department entailed extraordinary results since the first prototype. That methodology not only minimises the developing associated costs but also guarantees a product previously tested and incorporates the accessories required to process the most diverse designs.
Inramik offers specific assistance services focused on three main interesting areas:
• Technical assistance and spare parts.
• Periodic maintenance.
• Training and recycling.
It guarantees through its distribution network the worldwide expedition of spare parts. Its customer service department will send quotation of accessories and spare parts in less than 24 hours. The maintenance includes revision and setting up of the machine and gives to the customer a special discount on all the spare parts and accessories bought from Inramik.
Training and recycling courses are based on lessons carried on by Inramik's operators on customers’ machines. In those trainings different processes are reviewed depending on customers’ needs.
The main purpose of this service is to go deeper with the analysis that allows the folding and gluing optimisation.
