Next Generation Pump


A leading industrial equipment manufacturer asked Innovia to review state-of-the-art pump technologies and identify those that could contribute to a breakthrough next generation design.


Innovia conducted a systematic literature review, drawing on academic papers, the archives of engineering institutions and a patent search using our proprietary methodology. We evaluated our results using a combination of rigorous analysis and engineering intuition. Illustrating the technology landscape graphically enabled our client to converge quickly on promising directions.


Despite the maturity of the industry, and the deep expertise of our client, Innovia identified many new designs. Our client has started various projects to develop our suggestions; they believe our results saved them several years of work.
