Design and development
The aim of the internal design and development department is to offer the customer innovative solutions for the required application, using the latest technology. This is done through customer-specifications or with our own innovations.
It goes without saying that, in addition to new developments, existing products are also constantly being adapted to the growing requirements.
In order to be able to fulfil these goals, partnerships with customers, suppliers and cooperation companies are sought and maintained.
To ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget, they are processed according to fixed schedules and divided into milestones.
In order to be able to guarantee a complete project processing and documentation according to IATF 16949, the following tools, among others, are used daily:
- 3D CAD systems PTC Creo and Dassault CATIA V5 for the creation of models, assemblies and drawings as required
- FMEA software IQ-FMEA for the analysis of product design and manufacturing process
- MDesign calculation program for pre-dimensioning, design and documentation of structural elements
- FEM and CFD analysis with PTC Creo
For functionally relevant preliminary tests and mostly customer-specific validation tasks, the test department, which is integrated in the development department, has the following equipment at its disposal:
- Salt spray fog chamber
- Climate cabinets
- Flow bench
- Endurance test devices
- and much more.
