PRODUTECH S.r.l. is an Italian company specialized in metal sheet working machines, which counts on more than 20 years' experience in innovative machines production. With continuous innovation efforts, PRODUTECH is a notable actor on the global market with 166 customers in Europe and 22 customers outside the EU (India, North America and Far East), thanks to a worldwide distribution network. EffiCOIL represents a key business opportunity following the successful Phase 1 execution of the SME Instrument.Industrial activities are responsible for more than one fourth of the total energy consumption in Europe. In particular, the metallurgical industry is responsible for about 20% of such energy expenditure, summing up to about 51Mtoe per year. In this context, metal forming machines are used in a wide range of discrete production areas, including white goods, steel furniture, lighting and electrical equipment, automotive, etc. However, at moment, no solutions are available in the market offering a complete integration of the metal forming process, including electric punching, fibre laser cutting and direct coil feeding. With EffiCOIL project, PRODUTECH will get ready for the market launch of a new machine for metal coil working, combining the flexibility of coil metal punching – process already patented by PRODUTECH - with the precision and speed of the coil fibre laser cutting - first brought to market by PRODUTECH. The integrated technology will result in a 52% reduction in energy consumption for metal sheet production, as well as 20-30% reduction in wasted metal sheet, with a decrease in Capex and Opex versus standard metal processing machinery. The expected profitability will be high (TIR~23%). For PRODUTECH, EffiCOIL market launch will allow an optimization of the business structure, increase market area and volume, as well as the brand consolidation.
