WAC Solo, here’s how the future borns

550 380 Pariani Srl

Automatic processing, hand finishing, strong tests and exclusive materials: let’s see how the most innovative and ever desired integrated control bridge borns.

System design

The process begins in our engineering department where the system engineer defines with the shipyard the list of equipment to be managed by the new bridge.

For each of these systems is defined the command tree that will be implemented and/or the related options.

Design language

The next step is the definition of the design language and the materials.

Our designers work closely with the customer to select the right combination according to their tastes.

Each yacht is an unique piece and so must be your console. Every detail can be customized according to your needs.

Mechanical and electrical design

The work of engineers begins only after this phase, they industrialize every form and design the electronics that will give form and function to the new console.

Our design phase covers all aspects of the product development process, such as design, verification, sustainable design, communication and data management, through an integrated and continuous workflow.

Production

CNC Machining

To achieve the best possible precision, the parts are built with automatic processes, such as CNC machining for mechanical parts and pick & place assembly for electronic parts.

The mechanical department can count on 3-4 and 5-axis CNC machining centers, even on large dimensions, in order to work any piece and any material that has been defined.

PCB Assembly

Our electronic boards are assembled on very precise pick & place machines able to mount micro-components with minimum dimensions up to 0.250×0.125mm.

After the assembly, the boards undergo a vapor phase welding process which allows a superior, fault-free and completely uniform welding quality with a 0% risk of overheating.

Glass Milling

With advanced CNC-machines, we can mill all kinds of shapes and notches in a glass bedding which machines edges to a very high quality polished finish

Craftman work

But you know, art is not a process of the machines and so all the aesthetic finishes are carried out in a traditional way by expert personnel.

Surface treatments, painting, seawing, everything must be in the name of the single piece, not made in series but not imperfect and therefore, this phase takes 2 months. Everything must be perfect, without compromise.

Stress screening and Test

Every mechanical part is dimensional checked with a very strict dimensional control.

The electronic boards are 100% tested and subjected to an operating environmental stress screening (ESS) that subjects them to 72 hours of thermal cycles cooling them down to -20 ° C and then heating them up to 60 ° C many and many times.

In this way, any functional imperfections in the assembly processes are amplified and intercepted.

Cards that do not pass this very severe tests are rejected and dismissed.

Final Assembly

Moving to the Assembly Area, the final assembly team of mechanics and electricians alternate their effort for about two weeks.

The parts are assembled according to standardized procedures at the end of which tests are provided to guarantee precision and repeatability at the highest levels.

An artisan product that is assembled with aeronautical methodology acquires a high value, destined to last over time.

End Line

Once assembly is complete, an endurance test is performed at the end-line.

The console is powered and stimulated with automatic tests for at least 7 days.

In this phase, every parameter such as board temperature, bus data errors, component status and many others are monitored by the “built-in-test” process.

Each anomaly is recorded and managed according to strict internal rules.

FAT

When this pure technology artwork is ready, a complete FAT is performed in the presence of the shipyard and of the naval register which, after having analyzed all the project and system documentation, certifies its suitability for naval use, the famous “Type Approved”.

Delivery

The console is now ready to be shipped to the shipyard.

It is now dismantled into sub-assemblies and packaged in a suitable container to ensure its transport, protected from impacts and adverse atmospheric agents.

WAC Solo, here’s how the future is born (1/2)

1024 384 Pariani Srl

In the designer’s job there are some basic rules that define the product you want to realize and, if there are no constrains, we design with these rules in mind, sometimes even overcoming them. Designing a new console is a team effort that involves not only our designers but also the shipyard and the design center that takes care of the Yacht design.

Sometimes it happens that the shipyard, the customer’s designer or the production itself (rarely) define constraints and that our design center must take steps backwards, limiting what could be the result in terms of innovation, strength and balance.

Fortunately, these are exceptional events.

It was not so for our concept “WAC Solo” that innovates in terms of ergonomics, design and technology and prefigures the solutions of the integrated control bridges that will be adopted in future productions.

It tooks eight months to give life to our “WAC Solo” which was shown for the first time at MYS 2017.

This concept is a refined product of design and engineering that, for its design, involved interior and exterior designers whose pencils were inspired by the automotive world.

At the beginning it bounced like ping-pong balls between a design that privileged the ostentation of technology and a minimalist one, then we found the convergence between these two philosophies and, without any technical constraints, we designed the lines of the most attractive integrated console ever, the WAC Solo.

The result of this work is a walk around console for single operator, with minimalistic crystal dashboard and a futuristic cockpit that with its essential lines delimits the shape of our glass band, an infinite display that visualizes the navigation parameters.

The other characteristic elements are the navigation controls (rudder and throttle levers) and the stands of the monitors that extrude from the structure and invisibly support the high definition screens.

The lightness shape and the materials are combined with a system of ambient lights that is harmonized with the integrated console and the glass band.

In this way, the WAC Solo, is placed at the center of the wheel house as an important visual presence but, at the same time, able to blend with the surrounding environment.

The beauty of a concept is that the ideas from which it originates are often developed without any technical constraints, the beauty of WAC Solo is that its realization has not taken any step behind what was imagined by its designers.

T28 Cockpit Refit

960 640 Pariani Srl

Pariani is an industrial reality that acts as centre of gravity for many flight enthusiasts, including former workers in the aviation industry, pilots, mechanics and designers.

With these people, who share the same passion with us, it often happens that a business relationship also becomes friendship.

This happened with the commander Oliver Linde who we met over 20 years ago and that we still meet often to have fun with him to transform in reality ideas that many would consider crazy.

In this story, we want to talk about how we collaborated on his last adventure to transform his little dream (not so small) into reality.

When Oliver bought his last jewel, a post-war T28 and took it to the Locarno airport we, but I also think many other friends, took him for crazy!

He wants to refurbish a 70-year-old plane! And not only that, he had in mind to update the avionics adding a new generation of instruments on a cockpit that was already full of hands and switches! This time it seems he was really dreaming

… then … one day … he comes to us with a millimeter sheet on which he had redesigned the cockpit. He moved some gauges to make space for others and, without neglecting ergonomics, he added everything he wanted.

At least the cockpit could be done! Oliver started immediatly disassembling the cockpit, but when he began to remove the first instruments, the harnesses aged by time showed their fragility and precariousness! Anyone would be discouraged, instead Oliver has found new charge and decided to redo the entire electrical system.

Meanwhile, in Pariani we did a reverse engineering of the original cockpit and made some wooden mock-ups to verify the design and the ergonomics of the new layout.

It took a bit ‘of time to organize all the cockpit at best maintaining the right strength but after few weeks we built the final structural parts for the cockpit NG (New Generation) that in the meantime had evolved further to accommodate some other instrument … in case the ones already included in the first idea were not enough.

The second step was to create new transilluminated panels, in particular the breaker panels that had to be updated to manage the new electronic systems. The entire backlighting of the cockpit has been made using LEDs (Type VII)  according to the latest aeronautical standards, for example the SAE AS-7788F.

The third step, no less important and challenging, was to restore the functionality and aesthetics of the most worn original HMIs. The result was beyond expectations, tools from the middle of the last century seemed to have just come out of the factory and did not disfigure at all by the newest MFDs.

Meanwhile, the electrical design team worked on the connections of new electronic instruments such as MFD, GPS, IMU …. To animate the dashboard and make a jump ahead in time of almost a century.

The cockpit could never been so cool!

Now, the Captain Oliver Linde is ready to fly.

Have fun, dear friend!

The 5 golden rules for Pariani’s customers satisfaction

640 640 Pariani Srl

1. EXCELLENCE AND QUALITY

The achievement of these targets represents a precise hi-level corporate choice on a basic aspect of customer satisfaction that Pariani intends to manage for a long-lasting business relationship.
It’s a choice that covers all the possible declinations of the product and the project, from those of an ethical-relational nature, to those related to the organizational, technical and economic aspects. Basically, all that concerns the offer of quality in services and products, from the phase of customer’s request for quotation to post-sales support, passing from design, qualification and production. An approach that is not only measured in quantitative terms, but above all qualitative, because certain excellence lies in “what” but we believe that it is also in “how” a product or service is proposed and that it is the sum of technical values, ethical and empathetic that Pariani puts at the head of its corporate philosophy.

2. CARE AND ATTENTION

These are keys aspects that are monitored and fulfilled starting from the moment the customer comes into contact with our reality.
Their fulfilment follows the codified rules of our procedures and a profitable business relationship that is hard to codify but which is breathed during all stages of development and production.

3. FLEXIBILITY

In Pariani there are not only standard solutions, everything can be customized to better meet the customer requirements.
In a reality as particular as the aerospace world, the open-mindedness in relations with the customer becomes extremely important.

Flexibility means for Pariani the skill to exploit its know-how gained in over 40 years of activity in the aerospace market to identify the best solution that meets the customer’s requirement, in the customers interests.

4. INNOVATION AND FORESIGHT

Knowing how to always look ahead, the ability to find new solutions and apply advanced technologies to offer customers the opportunity to have the best technology or technical solution becomes fundamental for a modern company that aims to improve customer loyalty.

5. PROFESSIONALISM AND TOP BEHAVIOR

A good customer retention strategy based on collaboration and willingness to engage in  dialogue consolidates relationship with a growing number of loyal customers and leads to new ones.
According to a quality expert such as A. Parasuraman of the University of Miami: “The only criteria that counts in the evaluation of the quality of the service are those defined by the customers, all the other judgments are substantially irrelevant. particular, depend on the more or less high level of the supplier’s performance in relation to customer expectations”.

Pariani logo evolution story

640 640 Pariani Srl

Since the beginning of our business story, many things changed but not our desire to renew, the research for continuous improvement and the passion for technology.
During these 40 years, our logo has been updated few times.

The last step of this evolution has been made few years ago, in the 2015, but the same meanings are behind this logo.

The original logo was designed in the 1974, many nights after long working days.

There where the drafting table, the ruler, a pencil, the transferable letters and lines and young creative guys. The target was to design a simple but very clear logo which could identify the main business on avionic market:  that night we reached it.

The result was very easy to design and to replicate using manual engraving machines and even if the main business was in the helicopters market , the fixed wing was easier to sketch and was used to represent the avionic market.

The first evolution comes twenty years later: we added the Italian flag to highlight that our products are made in Italy, and a fast remind to one of the main business of the company: Opto-electronic equipment.

The drafting tools changed from drafting table to Autocad, ruler to mouse and pencil to keyboard but the old logo was still actual and was reused as it is.

Unfortunately a lot of new potential customers misunderstood the name of the company and called us optronic equipment but the Italian flag was so fascinating that the new design has been used for fifteen years.

In the 2013 we decided to restyle the logo launching a web contest. Many designers participated at this contest and we worked hard to select the best proposal.

The new logo slept for two years and, like a good wine, gets better with age refining colours and geometries.

The result is the actual logo that features a simple and straightforward design with two components: the logotype and the symbol.

For the logotype, we are using a modern blue lowercase font , for the symbol, that is very important in a world of digital motion, we want to illustrate the emblem of our core business.

You will notice the distinctive signs of all the previous ones:

– The “A” of Adriano, our founder

– The ellipse that represents our planet

– The plane, emblem of our core business

– Our name, “Pariani”, to which we wanted to give greater prominence

– ITALY, because we are proud of our country and to be part of that excellence that wants to keep the “MADE in ITALY”

Looking carefully, you will notice other recalls:

– Sailing, because even boating is an important sector of our business

– The “S”, the initial of the owners.

The color scheme represents purity and optimism (blue) and harmony, creativity and trust in ourselves and in others (orange).

When we come to our logo, we see simplicity as being key of the message we want to pass to our customers.

At Pariani we always consider with care the processes involved in the manufacture of our products, because a good product is one that not only meets the customer’s expectations but also ensures the right profit margin.

We call it “integrated design” because we make sure there are no barriers between design and production and also because know-how is put to use in both departments and is seen as one of the company’s assets.

The designers can learn from the new solutions perfected by the production department, and apply them to create and design even better parts and assemblies.

In the meantime, the production department faces the new challenges raised by the engineering to to move the limit further and further, because at Pariani we take care over the design and manufacture of our products, rather than simply make them.

The key problem every time we install a new production facility is to make the engineers fully understand their potential and opportunities, all this while designing and manufacturing continue without interruption.

The result is greater efficiency of the processes and planning with an eye for better managing bottlenecks.

We have revolutionised many manufacturing processes over the past five years.

For example, we installed new 5-axis milling centres with large work areas and high-productivity multitasking centres in the CNC department, so that we reduced the outsourcing of machining to zero, improved process control and created new workplaces.

This new organisation of the mechanical department has allowed us to optimise workflows and ensure faster delivery.
