Interview with Diego Barone, R&D Project Leader at Vin Service
Vin Service, founded in 1976, is a world leader in dispenser technology and the first Italian manufacturer of draft-wine dispensers. Its core business is in the dispensing equipment industry and in cooling systems for beverages. Some of its bespoke solutions include plug&play dispensers with disposable PET kegs and innovative Peltier technology for draught beer and soft drink towers. The company also designs customized dispensing solutions for its customers. Consquently it has an expertly staffed and equipped R&D division. In 2011, the company began phasing out the old trial-and-error and design-over approaches to product design in favour of simulation-based design, and selected EnginSoft as a strategic partner. In this interview he discusses how and where the company has begun implementing simulation-based design and the business, manufacturing and production benefits they have realised as a result.
