Virtual, guided, interactive
Daikin Applied Europe’s factories can now be visited from remote thanks to the new virtual factory tour service. All manufacturing facilities are available for 360° tours guided by Daikin’s engineers.
Chiller, heat pumps and compressors factory
Cecchina factory was originally founded in 1969. Since then, the whole plant has expanded both in size and in terms of manufacturing facilities. Today Cecchina factory covers more than 20,000 sqm and allows to manufacture over 10,000 chillers and over 5,000 compressors. This factory manufacture both Air-cooled and Water-cooled custom chillers, as well as the recently release series R-32 Small Inverter Chiller, which needed a different manufacturing approach to meet the requirements of the “make-to-stock” production. Cecchina factory also provides facilities complying with the with the Eurovent and AHRI certifications, which allow to do performance tests clients can attend and witness in person or from remote thanks to remote witness test service. The new climatic chamber in particular, is AHRI (Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute) and Eurovent approved, and has been independently verified and accredited to test to EN 14511:2013, ISO 9614:2009 and other major recognised European and American HVACR industry standards.
It is the largest Daikin European AHU factory and is located near Milan, in Settala. It was established in 2009 and manufactures over 2,500 air handling units per year, offering technology ensuring high energy efficiency and high indoor air quality levels, under any operating condition. The factory manufactures both panels, thanks to a dedicated line, and both centalized and de-centralized ventilation solutions.
The Power Electronics Division was opened in 2018. At that time Daikin decided to invest in the acquisition of a team of professionals, fully dedicated to the development of Inverter technology.
The need for greater efficiency of the compressors, and the increased attention on energy savings, has pushed Daikin to consider the in-house development of this technology strategically important for the company to offer a complete package of solutions.
In Vicenza, Daikin Applied Europe design and produce the inverters which are directly integrated in the Daikin in-house developed screw compressors, just like Daikin design and produce electrical panels with inverter for centrifugal compressors.
