Geico is a world leader in the design and construction of turnkey automated auto body paintshops.
The Pardis Project
With the Pardis Project, launched in 2005, Geico Taikisha was the world’s first company to offer a zero environmental impact paintshop, reducing consumption by 70%. The target date set for Energy Independence Day (June 16, 2020), was achieved 3 years ahead of schedule, in 2017.
the series of innovative tools and procedures that allow the delivery time for a paintshop to be drastically reduced, while maintaining high-quality standards.
thanks to its IOT technology system, the plant can analyze data, communicate with the operator, and learn to become increasingly efficient.
the plant is capable of adapting to continuously changing production needs, meeting the needs of individual customers using a logic of mass customization.
Smart Plant Management
the collaboration between human beings and machines is maximized to constantly monitor the plant’s performance and to identify any anomalies.
Smart Energy Management System
4.0 technologies allow the plant to monitor energy consumption and adapt it to the production capacity.
this is the centralized digital platform (Digital Twin) that allows every process and processing phase to be monitored. It simplifies quality control, predictive maintenance, and the management of the paintshop as a whole, thereby progressively improving its performance and efficiency.
Geico Taikisha’s Pardis Innovation Centre is the auto body painting industry’s most important worldwide research and development center. It spearheads all the Group’s efforts, and has received numerous domestic and international awards.
3,600 m2 of area, with over 40 working prototypes that make use of renewable energy technologies.
