PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT

The STE Tecpharm assembly team has great experience in the assembly of process equipment: they work in conjunction with the engineering department, with the electrical automation team and the software department in the processes of purchasing and quality control.

 Solid processing equipment requires extensive knowledge, not only in the design of the equipment, but also in installation and positioning, so that the result meets optimum expectations. Our technical team has experience in the assembly of production equipment for large batches and laboratory scale equipment.

QUALITY AND DOCUMENTATION DEPARTMENT DQ, IQ, OQ y PQ

The quality department of STE Tecpharm attends each delivery of machines. We considered that the FAT is one of the most important step in the process.

STE – Customer: Quality Deppartment approves the compliance of the equipment and that it matches the requirements specified by the customer (URS).

Documentation: is delivered in digital format in a tablet in different languages, Spanish, English, German, Russian and French.

FAT | FACTORY ACCEPTANCE TEST

Before sending any equipment, FAT tests (First Acceptance Tests) are carried out together with our engineering company: STE Engipharm. Our central facilities have all the instruments and accesses (such as water vapour, treated water, compressed air, etc.) to simulate the operating conditions of equipment before proceeding with its installation in the customer’s plant.

SRS | STE REMOTE SERVICE

Technical Assistance – Remote Service

STE has developed an application to be connected remotely to the PC of the machine and visualize in real time through the SRS system.

SRS helps to improve complex process of technical requirements, maintenance and process operations. It will help you to decrease time and as a consequence, to save money.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Engineers can remotely assist field service operators and offer just-in-time performance support.

Operators can have both hands free to fix a machine and are able to perform their job freely

TURNKEY PROJECTS

STE TECPHARM offers “turnkey” facilities. We have significant experience in the integration of processes alongside our engineering company. We provide real “turnkey” solutions at the customer’s premises.

The installation of process machinery can be difficult, due to the specific requirements of each installation, the location of the AHUs and other peripherals in the technical area. A customised solution is always required so that the equipment adapts to the customer’s facilities, thus ensuring the perfect functioning of the implemented solution.
