ABOUT FACET ENGINEERING – LEADERS IN PROCESS, CONVEYOR, AND MATERIALS HANDLING SYSTEMS

ESTABLISHED IN 1989

Facet Engineering began as an engineering and design office. Our primary field began as design and project management services. Facet provided these to the conveying and agri food processing industries. Thus, our current specialisation in conveyor system and process engineering projects is clear.

INDEPENDENT SOUTH AFRICAN MANUFACTURERS

Shortly after our founding, we set up our own manufacturing facilities. This allowed us to independently manufacture process engineering and materials handling equipment. Our 2000m2 workshop is also well equipped. It includes CNC plasma cutting equipment and a state-of-the-art machine shop.

LATEST SOFTWARE AND TECHNOLOGY

Facet utilises the latest computer-aided drafting systems and software. This allows us to perfect our process and conveyor system designs. We can create plant and machinery to extreme detail and to exact specifications. What’s more, we can also provide manufacturing drawings in 2D and 3D. Then, we are able to simulate them to prove their functionality to our clients.

PLANT AND MACHINERY MADE TO THE HIGHEST INDUSTRY STANDARDS

Our design office passes on details to the workshop. Thereafter, manufacturing follows strict quality control procedures. This applies to the production of agri food processing and conveyor machinery. In doing so, all our process and conveyor systems meet the highest industry standards.

CONVEYOR AND AGRI FOOD PROCESSING EXPERTISE

We are multi-faceted South African manufacturers with two areas of expertise. One area is the design, manufacture, and supply of process engineering systems. The second is a materials handling and conveyor system specialisation. Our range of conveyors is one of the largest available in the country. Thus, it caters to almost all industries and sectors of the market.
Our process engineering systems, though, are more specialised. They cater mainly for the Agri-food industry. This is born from a passion for the industry. Additionally, we recognise the increasing need of the food chain in a modern world.

PROCESS AND CONVEYOR SYSTEM SYNERGY

There is synergy between our two areas of expertise in plant and machinery. Agri food processing and conveyor systems are often complementary. As a result, our clients gain many benefits from our products and services. Almost every processing plant will have conveying and material handling requirements.
Our exposure to these challenges has made us leading South African manufacturers. Our extensive expertise is thanks to a culmination of over 30 years in the industry. This, of course, is then passed onto our customers. We understand the importance of supplying productive and workable solutions for our clients.
Thus, we offer a wide range of process engineering and materials handling equipment. Custom-made individual machines and complete turnkey projects are our forte. We constantly strive to innovate, improve, and develop new products in our range. This ensures that we meet our customers’ exact requirements.

GLOBAL EXPERIENCE

Facet Engineering has completed many projects worldwide. Our process and conveyor system products have seen multi-continental usage. Our food processing and conveyor systems exist throughout South Africa. Yet, our work has also extended across Africa, the Indian Ocean Islands, and Australia.
Our plant and machinery all originates from a single workshop. We provide our products from our Johannesburg-based head office and production facility. and we also have offices in Cape Town. You can rest assured that our knowledge and expertise is at your disposal worldwide.

INTERNATIONAL PARTNER

Our abilities are also further enhanced by being the official agent for the internationally-acclaimed company Zaccaria. Zaccaria is a leader in the field of cereal processing plants, machinery and systems, and we are proud to be associated with them.

Services We Offer

SITE SURVEY

We conduct inspections of the food processing or conveyor systems and equipment. During this, our project engineers determine the requirements of the client. We then gather vital information needed to compile a cost estimate for the project.

CONCEPTUALIZATION

This is the process of developing a solution for a client’s problem. We draft the scope of the project, and determine the vital features and requirements. As South African manufacturers, we need thorough examination and analysis.

ENGINEERING DESIGN

We move to this phase after conducting necessary research and determining design requirements. This involves draughting preliminary high-level design drawings of the proposed solution. This applies for both conveyor and process engineering. We pride ourselves in having one of the best engineering design teams in the country.

CLIENT PRESENTATION

This is essentially a feedback session. Here, we present the solutions and drawings of the process or conveyor system to the client. Everything presented has the backing of extensive research, analysis, and design.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Once a client has approved a proposed solution and cost estimate, we move to the next phase. This involves managing all (or some) aspects of a plant and machinery project. We do this from start to finish, depending on the clients requirements.

DRAFTING

After compiling more detailed designs of a project, the drafting process follows. These are manufacturing drawings that include dimensions, schematics, and layouts. We make use of the latest design software available. This ensures the highest quality food processing and conveyor systems drawings for clients.

MANUFACTURING

After approval of design drawings, we move on to the production planning phase. This includes procuring raw materials, coordinating resources and commencing production of the project. As South African manufacturers, our production facilities are well equipped. Strict quality controls are standard practice.

DELIVERY

We also offer delivery of our products directly to the client. We can deliver throughout Southern Africa, Africa and the across the globe.

INSTALLATION

The correct installation of a machine or plant is vital to ensure its proper functioning. This needs the precise set up of the machine or plant to ensure the equipment is working correctly. Electrical set up also forms part of this process.

COMMISSIONING

After successful installation is the commissioning of machinery. This involves testing and calibrating the set-up and operating parameters. This ensures that the desired production capacities are being achieved. Additionally, the machine must not be running under strain. Optimising the plant requires that conditions are suitable with necessary adjustments.
