Imagine a completely new model that changes the way you think about how your suppliers bring value to your industrial processes.
Intelligence. Innovation. Integrity.
Legacy designs incorporating yesterday’s technology cost a fortune in maintenance time, delivers inefficient performance, and is causing energy costs to soar. Where most manufacturers leave the solution to the end user, distributor or system designer, Millibar emerges with a bold new approach. Millibar goes a step further in the design process, staying with you every step of the way.
Millibar brings a wealth of experience to solving vacuum problems old and new, and sets the bar high for its own product quality as well as the integrated vacuum components brought into any vacuum solution. Beyond our 30 years of vacuum expertise, through relationships with selected business partners, we are able to add a level of value that combines the engineering talent of the best manufacturers and distributors in the industry.
Millibar Design Process
When a custom solution is required we will triage the request to determine the amount of engineering time and prototyping expense, and provide you with a quote before proceeding to production. Having developed thousands of custom solutions, this process is very quick. Designs are often completed in a week or less, and prototype creation and testing are usually within 3 weeks, depending upon complexity.
We design from the ground up. We will ask a lot of questions to ensure that we understand the entire scope of the customer’s need. We are always focused on design to minimize components, save assembly labor (both internally and within the overall system), and most importantly, a robust design. With no moving parts, our designs provide trouble-free operation. However, as a vacuum source, our products are always ingesting dirt and debris. If for some reason, a large piece of debris enters the pump, we will design the system to be easy to clean out—often without the need for tools. A good example is a lightbulb factory where the vacuum pump is designed to remove air from the bulb during a quality check station. On occasion, the bulb breaks and large bits of glass make their way to the pump. Knowing that this is likely to happen, we designed a system that was easy for the operator to clean so that the machine did not require a maintenance person to be called.
