North American manufacturer of decanter centrifuges and advanced biosolids treatment technologies Centrisys/CNP has opened its new engineering innovation lab designed to enhance collaboration, streamline problem-solving, and foster innovation across all engineering departments.
The engineering innovation lab was conceived as a hub for its engineers to come together from project inception to completion, ensuring swift response times and unified goals. The lab serves as a space for knowledge transfer and as a training ground for the next generation of engineers.
Equipped with technology such as advanced computer systems and SolidWorks software, the lab is about uniting mechanical, electrical, process, and application engineering departments. The lab features collaborative spaces such as drop-down areas, a conference room, and a kitchen island designed to foster interaction. From the upstairs lab space dedicated to mechanical, electrical, applications, and process engineering to the first floor’s projects team, the layout will help ensure integration and access between teams, optimising the execution of projects.
The lab is set to be operational in January 2024 and will support all Centrisys/CNP customers, enhancing response times, continuity, and innovation. The lab will cater to all engineering service needs, including product development, service, repair, and reverse engineering, facilitated through a collaborative approach.
Josh Gable, director of sales, Centrisys/CNP said, “The lab stands out as an investment in Centrisys/CNP’s sustainable growth. The lab aligns with the company’s organic growth, utilising our existing pool of talented engineers with space to add more into the future.”
