Research-development and design
Research-Development and Design is a very important department in our company. Through the research and development process, our specialists within the Technical Department develop new technologies in the production of machine tools. Technical Department is able to solve technical problems locally and remotely, offering technical assistance to our customers. The design and production of machine tools is a key point on which AMCO relies.
The design and development of the most complex mechanical, hydraulic and electrical projects is offered by our specialists, who are fully dedicated, collaborating with the client to obtain a complex project.

FEA - Finite Elements Analysis
FEA is the de-facto technology for detailed stress analysis and deformation prediction across almost every engineering field. For industrial equipment, finite element analysis is widely used. In the processing industry, for example, pressure and heat loads are applied to predict stress levels in piping, pressure vessels, tanks, and similar equipment. Another possible use for the industry is the simulation of forging processes for mills, benders, and stampers, to measure stress levels and spring-back magnitude of forged parts. In the automotive industry, FEA simulations are performed to assess the structural safety of designed components, such as chassis, anchors, suspension, bodyworks, etc.
It is also important to note that, even stress and deformation being the main goal calculation with FEA, they are not the only important prediction that can be made with it. Other very useful information for a given structural system that can be obtained with FEA include:
- Natural vibration frequencies and modes
- Forced vibration (harmonic) response
- Buckling limits and modes for thin structures
- Fracture propagation modes and fatigue life
