The Latest Project
In BEUMER Group, it was decided that power supplies with higher operating voltage should be used. Develco got the task to make the necessary upgrade of an existing Brushless DC (BLDC) motor control platform while ensuring that the platform is backward compatible. In the specific project, there was a need for changes to both software and hardware. To ensure product lifetime as much as possible, a life cycle analysis has been conducted so that components that were close to end-of-life (EOL) were identified and replaced. The developed solution is mechanically compatible with the previous printed circuit board (PCB) and can be used for all types of sorters supplied by BEUMER Group. Develco’s longstanding collaboration with BEUMER Group and knowledge of their products made it possible to complete the task despite a very tight schedule.
Based on the close co-operative relationship with BEUMER Group, CEO Jakob Bjerre explains: “We have been involved in development tasks for BEUMER Group and the former Crisplant for more than 25 years and are now also responsible for production of their electronic components. This background, of course, provides a good ballast as to competency, and this was also needed because of system and time constraints. It is generally the philosophy of Develco that we must solve the customer’s problem and avoid creating new ones. In other words, we must provide solutions that ensure continuity and durability in relation to the customer’s existing general system. This is completely in harmony with BEUMER Group’s wishes for the greatest possible compatibility, and we are proud that we could complete the task within the very narrow timeframe.”
