THE TECHNOLOGICAL  Institute of the Philippines has completed its review of the electrical system of Metals Engineering Resources Corporation with which it entered into a partnership agreement.

“As an engineering school, TIP is in a prime position to assist in the growth of Philippine companies such as METERCOR. These mutually beneficial partnerships allow our partners to focus as much as possible on what they are already good at running their business while we work to give them the answers they need and more,” TIP Senior Vice President Angelo Lahoz said.

“At the same time, involved TIP researchers, faculty members, and even students are able to further expand their expertise and skills. It’s a win-win partnership for everyone involved,” he added.

The researchers, through the TIP TechnoCoRe, designed the electrical system and evaluated the need for additional power loads in the future.

“The power study is a vital part of gauging the electrical efficiency of METERCOR’s manufacturing plant with its currently used equipment, and the feasibility of any plans for expansion,” the researchers said.

“The power load demand and power sufficiency in any manufacturing plant is critical because insufficiency of power load can negatively affect production outputs, while excess of power load may unnecessarily increase operational costs,” they added.

Founded in 1948, METERCOR manufactures automotive castings, compressor housing parts, pumps, and foundry and machining works. It features diversified product lines for some of the country’s leading companies in various fields, including in the automotive and air conditioning industries.
