5 points where industries will evolve in the future!

Smart Industries at F.Fonseca Day second edition   Helder Lemos from F.Fonseca and Jaume Catalan, SICK Industry Manager were responsible for the second panel of the day. Knowing a little more about what smart industries are and where they are going was the goal of these interventions. These were born to meet consumer needs, people need goods to improve their quality of life.   The idea of ​​investment so far has changed with the emergence of smart industries, and now these investments must go through technologies such as robotics, cloud and IoT. These investments mean that, by spending money on them, industries can produce more and grow. Helder Lemos highlighted 5 points where industries will evolve in the future: flexibility, especially with regard to personalization, one-on-one mass production; reaction time; efficiency; and cost optimization. Thus, it aims to increase productivity and quality of the final product, create new services, deliver added value, among other added value.   What prevents companies from betting on digitization? This was the question posed by Jaume Catalan to all present.   After discussion and presentation of the results, some reasons for this reality emerged on the table. According to one study, 65% of European companies consider digitization to be very relevant for their long-term survival. According to him, the digitization process of a company / industry must be done step by step, going through different steps until reaching a digitization degree that allows all processes to be self-optimized.

A new reality in maintenance!

Maintenance 4.0 in the F.Fonseca Day second edition   Helder Silva and Rui Vasconcelos from Renault Cacia were the next speakers and talked about the evolution of the industry and the new maintenance paradigm. “Industry 4.0 is based on the cloud, IoT, augmented reality, big data, and communication of all systems simultaneously, from the end customer to the production lines,” explained Hélder Silva, adding that reaching this stage requires bet on intelligent, autonomous and data-driven systems that can make decisions without human intervention. And what can you get with this? More efficient, increasingly intelligent factories that produce less waste.   “These days there is a waste of resources that means that regardless of whether the equipment needs maintenance or not, an operator will perform its maintenance on a regular basis. What can be gained from implementing Maintenance 4.0 in this reality? The machines will be so sensitized that they themselves tell the maintenance operator when they need intervention”, explained Rui Vasconcelos, making it clear that at Renault Cacia they are working to optimize the entire maintenance process.

The aim was to show to those still in their academic period that tomorrow they will have to live with these solutions and that “they are here, they are real. Here is the state of the art of industrial automation in the world” said Helder Lemos.   The period of F.Fonseca Day would tend to be triennial, although this edition has been extended to take place in the year that F.Fonseca celebrates its 40th anniversary, thus joining the wide range of activities carried out by the company in 2019.   Earlier this year F.Fonseca convened an internal working group that discussed what might be interesting to show and discuss with Portuguese clients. The themes emerged from a consensus that allowed on the one hand to show technological issues outside the industrial world, and other more industrial themes, more linked to robotics, maintenance, safety, vision, among others. "We see ourselves as the entity that moves technology from the world to Portugal, and we think this is essential for industries to modernize, providing them with easy and simple solutions that we propose," said Helder Lemos, adding that the whole organization of this The event was for the same purpose, to move technology.   “We had a clear goal of overcoming the tremendous success we had in 2015 and we achieved not only the number of customers and partners present, the number of companies that are our suppliers, and our showroom that we planned to be larger than in the previous edition.”   The morning seminars were followed by the driving lunch, providing guests with the historical and scenic surroundings that this Montebelo hotel group offers in Ílhavo. Direct contact with the latest technological developments was the subsequent highlight in the showroom, with the support of much of F.Fonseca's technical and commercial staff, which allowed the demonstration of the operation and performance of the various equipment exhibited on site, wants the clarification of any questions posed.   The evaluation by the guests was acknowledged, totaling the feedback obtained between the very and fully satisfactory of 94% in speakers’ performance/ seminars and applicability / interest of the themes, 96% in the showroom and 99% in the event organization!   In the face of all these results, F.Fonseca's overall sentiment was of mission accomplished, confirming another great success, the 3rd future edition!

A F.Fonseca celebrou o seu aniversário no Palácio da Borralha.

40 anos de sucesso e aprendizagem, que venham os próximos 40! A F.Fonseca fez 40 anos de existência, a 27 de dezembro de 2018. Embora essa data tenha sido comemorada de forma intensa, no próprio dia de aniversário, nas instalações da empresa, a celebração junto de colaboradores, clientes, fornecedores, parceiros e amigos aconteceu no passado dia 27 de maio, no Palácio da Borralha, em Águeda. A festa contou com mais de 250 convidados que desfrutaram de uma noite muito especial, repleta de glamour, surpresas e emoções fortes!   A gala foi apresentada pela dupla de modelos, Pedro e Ricardo Guedes, que contaminaram todos os presentes com o seu humor e boa disposição.   O discurso do Presidente do Conselho de Administração, Carlos Gonçalves, marcou a abertura do jantar de gala onde foram referidos diferentes marcos e histórias destes já 40 anos de existência. Carlos Gonçalves, em forma de resumo, deixou a seguinte ideia chave “desde a nossa fundação tivemos a habilidade de transformar as adversidades em oportunidades. Foi assim que nascemos e foi assim que crescemos. A perseverança é um traço vincado na nossa identidade que, sem dúvida alguma, contribuiu de forma determinante para o sucesso do nosso percurso. Sempre tivemos a vontade de adquirir as competências necessárias e de estar perto de quem precisa de nós. Diz-se que ao marinheiro sem rumo qualquer vento é favorável. Nós sempre nos preocupámos em definir o nosso caminho.” Sendo a última ideia, que fez questão de destacar, a da importância das pessoas certas e o agradecimento a todos os players envolvidos!   Logo de seguida foi convidada a subir ao palco a Presidente da Junta de Freguesia de Esgueira, Dr.ª Angela Almeida, que felicitou a F.Fonseca pelo seu percurso e por ser um exemplo a seguir das empresas sediadas na freguesia sob a sua gestão. Terminou destacando o espírito que se vive na F.Fonseca e desejando que este sucesso se prolongue, pelo menos, por mais 40 anos.   Após as intervenções iniciais deu-se lugar ao jantar e música ao vivo prosseguido pela continuação das apresentações e muitas surpresas. A primeira das quais foi para o próprio Carlos Gonçalves que recebeu, em nome de todos os colaboradores, uma pintura a óleo com o seu retrato, autoria da colaboradora, e também filha, Paula Gonçalves. Entre a emoção do momento e um tom de brincadeira disse que, desta forma, o estariam a convence-lo a ficar ainda mais uns anos na empresa, nem que fosse “omnipresente”. Peça de arte Ainda no ramo das artes plásticas, seguiu-se uma surpresa para todas as entidades convidadas. A artista plástica Rute Rosas criou uma peça exclusiva, numerada e assinada, para homenagear o 40º aniversário da F. Fonseca. Inspirada na cidade de Aveiro e nas relações interpessoais desenvolveu uma escultura estilizada de um moliceiro envolvido por um corpo de água, intitulada “Da lembrança… uma trajetória”. Durante a sua apresentação mostrou, através de um vídeo, toda a minucia e singularidade da peça, e do processo criativo, que impressionou todos os presentes.   O segundo momento da gala foi marcado pela homenagem às marcas, clientes e colaboradores que estiveram com a F.Fonseca desde sempre.   Marcas mais antigas Na primeira categoria, a das marcas mais antigas, foram distinguidas as primeiras marcas da F.Fonseca presentes nesta cerimónia e reconhecidas entre as principais líderes mundiais, nas suas áreas de negócio. Para receber o prémio da marca mais antiga foi chamado ao palco o Diretor Geral da Steinel, Martin Frechen, que recebeu a devida homenagem, fruto de uma parceria iniciada há 39 anos, em 1980. A segunda marca mais antiga chamada ao palco, reconhecida pela qualidade inquestionável dos seus equipamentos, foi a Sick com 31 anos de parceria iniciados em 1988. Para receber esta distinção subiu ao palco o Diretor Geral da Sick Espanha, Lluis Martinez. Last but not least… para receber o galardão da 3ª marca mais antiga foi chamado ao palco o Division Manager da Mitsubishi Electric Europe, Alex Agelet, que se juntou à F.Fonseca em 1992, traduzindo-se em 27 anos de parceria. Prémio clientes mais antigos Os negócios não se fazem sem clientes e a F.Fonseca orgulha-se dos seus. Grande parte deles acompanha a empresa há largos anos e nunca é demais agradecer a sua fidelidade. Estes clientes sabem que é para eles que a F.Fonseca trabalha, inova e procura incansavelmente fazer mais e melhor. Estando presentes alguns destes clientes, que acompanham a F.Fonseca quase desde o início, foi dado o mote à categoria de clientes mais antigos. Para proceder à entrega foi chamado ao palco o colaborador responsável pela área comercial da F.Fonseca, o Gestor de Negócios Helder Lemos, que homenageou os representantes dos três clientes mais antigos, das 3 áreas comerciais da F.Fonseca. Na área de negócio de automação industrial a distinção foi para a The Navigator Company, em processo instrumentação e ambiente a distinção foi para a Diferencial e, por fim, na área de negócio de tecnologia de edifícios foi premiado o Grupo Rolear que também celebra, este ano, o seu 40º aniversário!   Colaborador mais antigo  “É a excelência das pessoas que trabalham connosco que garante o sucesso da nossa empresa”. Palavras de Carlos Gonçalves, Presidente do Conselho de Administração. A F.Fonseca tem como missão trabalhar cada vez mais e melhor, não apenas para clientes e fornecedores mas também para os seus colaboradores, onde tudo começa. Eles dão a cara pela empresa todos os dias e espelham o que é a F.Fonseca. Os colaboradores mais antigos da F.Fonseca são os irmãos Carlos e Óscar Gonçalves, mas esta empresa tem um historial riquíssimo de antiguidade, o que significa que as pessoas são verdadeiramente felizes. Chegado ao momento da última distinção da noite, a categoria de colaborador mais antigo, foi convidado a subir ao palco outro membro da administração, Sr. Óscar Gonçalves, que entregou o prémio ao colaborador Hernâni Rodrigues, que entrou para a F.Fonseca no dia 12 de janeiro de 1987, há 32 anos. Parabenizou-o por todos estes anos de dedicação e reconheceu-o como uma pessoa detentora de um conhecimento notável, que cresceu e fez crescer a F.Fonseca.   Corte do bolo Vividas emoções e recordações, próprias destes momentos, seguiu-se o momento mais simbólico e aguardado de qualquer aniversário, o corte do bolo! Mas este momento não veio só! Irromperam pelo salão de jantar as bailarinas ledwings que incentivaram os os convidados a segui-las para um espetáculo no exterior do palácio. A este espetáculo de bailado seguiu-se um outro cheio de luz e cor com a apresentação da empresa passada, através de videomapping, no bolo de aniversário! Uma surpresa para todos os presentes finalizada com um brinde e fogo de artificio.   A tenda iluminada sobre o lago foi o cenário perfeito para a festa que decorria no seu interior. Entre dj, músicos, fotografias instantâneas e muita animação, os convidados mais resistentes alongaram-se pela noite dentro neste convívio proporcionando um ótimo ambiente e refletindo o verdadeiro espírito de alegria que se vive na F.Fonseca.   Parafraseando novamente as palavras do Presidente do conselho de administração da F.Fonseca “à excelência da nossa equipa gostaria de destacar a excelência e importância dos nossos Parceiros, Clientes, Fornecedores e demais parceiros da sociedade civil que são absolutamente cruciais para a existência e crescimento da nossa organização. A todos quero agradecer sincera e vivamente por toda a confiança, exigência e profissionalismo que nos tornam mais fortes, bastante mais notáveis e reconhecidos.   Obrigado, a todos, por fazerem parte na nossa História!” Nos dias seguintes muitas foram as mensagens de agradecimento que chegaram à F.Fonseca, a estas, de forma sentida, a resposta continuou a ser a mesma: Um agradecimento genuíno e a promessa de fazer cada vez mais e melhor sempre em prol do crescimento de todos os envolvidos.
