Methods and Tools


Engineering and Innovation

All the services offered include, as a first phase of work, the knowledge of customer needs, acquisition brief, so as to provide the best solutions for the required requirements.
Subsequently, the project is carried out or the test plan is drawn up, if it is a test request, in full compliance with current legislation.

The phases for the performance of each Service are indicated below.

  • Analysis of the production process
  • Definition of objectives
  • Mechanical Design
  • Elaboration of construction drawings
  • Installation and testing assistance
  • Personal training
  • Analysis of the state of the art
  • Analysis of the production process
  • Simulation of flows
  • Identification of critical issues
  • Floor plans design
  • Systems design for logistics
  • Definition of project specifications
  • Economic analysis
  • Engineering
  • Simulations / Numerical Modeling
  • Development of an innovative solution
  • Installation and testing assistance
  • Design Management
  • Concept Design
  • Production of study models
  • Graphic processing
  • Definition of materials and technologies
  • Prototype realization
  • Functional test
  • Test Plan Definition

Each project requires the development of two-dimensional models. To this end Carbon Mind has equipped itself with solid modeling tools, with surfaces and able to elaborate executive drawings and structural calculations (simulations).

  • Siemens Simcenter 3D
  • PTC Creo Parametric
  • PTC Creo Elements/Direct Modeling

For two-dimensional models, in particular for drawing up department and / or factory floor plans, the company also makes use of DraftSight.
