Module-based Production – from CHEManager 11/2020

Module Type Package (MTP) approach for efficiency improvement in modular process equipment

Ever shorter product life cycles in the process industry necessitate innovations in the engineering and operation of equipment. The design of modular process engineering equipment has already been tested by industry. Yet integrated modular engineering has failed because controllers from different manufacturers couldn’t be used together within one production line. Semodia closes this gap via its Module Type Package (MTP) approach. This start-up was founded in 2019 by four research associates from TU Dresden and Helmut Schmidt University, Hamburg.
