At SERFRUIT, we have to highly specialised departments that carry out the R&D activity.
- R&D design. A team consisting of industrial engineers, electricians and industrial draughtsmen who are experts in the use of 3D software. They design the machines and evaluate the different prototypes before manufacturing them. They also have a specific simulation programme for checking the suitability of each piece of equipment.
- The programming and computing department is made up of industrial engineers, electricians and computer technicians who simulate the sequences and programme the control system.
