LOTO-eng Company has a long experience in the field of innovative opto- mechanical and electronic technologies. The Company has played a significant role in the design and manufacturing of new instruments in different areas of scientific research, co-operating with many Italian and European scientific institutions and universities, and developing both standard and custom solutions. Thanks to a skilled staff of experts, we have the knowledge, the commitment and the resources to understand your requirements and provide appropriate solutions. The main products developed until 20 years ago was Diamond Anvil Cells (DACs) and the instrumentation related. They are designed to fulfil the requirements of the most demanding applications in the field of High Pressure research. The cells can be operated at low temperature or be equipped with a miniature resistive heating element to reach high temperatures.
Coming up with ideas to improve engineering procedures, designs, and services. Developing devices with a group of skill engineers. Being involved in projects from the initial concept and design right through to production, testing and handover. Scheduling material and equipment purchases. Researching suitable engineering solutions. Formulating long term plans for an engineering projects cost control. I am well trained in recognizing the potentially dangerous issues associated with developing new devices and resolving them in their embryonic stage.Managing a projects schedule, potential problems, compliance and budget. Operating at a senior level, working with all parties to find solutions to complex procurement issues. Drafting high quality, articulate proposals, reports and presentations. Monitoring all supplier contracts. Processing payments and invoices. Negotiating contracts with third parties and suppliers. Developing relationships with suppliers. Reviewing proposals for competitive pricing, lead time and quality. Monitoring the cost and performance of major suppliers.
