Innovation, design, and engineering

Saval's focus on I+d+E and continuous improvement makes us face new
 challenges in the development of our product range. Our extensive experience in the
 sector has allowed us to introduce new products and improvements to the market, maintaining the
 highest quality standards and the most demanding certifications

Innovation 4.0

We are aware that we live in a changing market, where being at the forefront
 of the latest processes or technologies in the market is the basis to remain a leader in the global
 marine sector.
With this vision and the commitment of our technical office to continue improving the performance 
overall quality of our products, Saval is embarking on innovation projects 
related to the concept of "Industry 4.0", to take the manufacture and supply of
 valves to the next technological level.

Additive manufacturing

The development of new technologies that amplify the added value of the SAVAL product has
 led the company to look at new market trends in order to expand the 
capabilities of the SAVAL product.

One of these is Additive Manufacturing (AM); a production technique 
whereby material is deposited layer by layer in a controlled manner where it is
 needed. Thanks to this technique it is possible to reproduce components according to the needs that arise
 where a 3D printer is available.

Through this type of manufacturing, the costs of the various manufacturing processes are 
reduced to a minimum, delivery times are greatly improved and
 no waste of any kind is generated, thus improving the sustainability of the entire process.

Digital Twin

With a view to future vessels 4.0, the “Digital Twin” concept is becoming extremely important 
in the development of SAVAL valves.

The digital twin allows us to have a virtual replica of the product, in this way
 we can obtain information on design, performance, test potential changes or detect
 errors, so we can understand and predict the performance characteristics of its 
physical equivalent.

This virtual duplicate is used in controlled virtual systems to simulate, predict and 
optimize the product for future development or improvement.
