Product Development

Our team has years of experience with development of new products in the automotive industry and understanding the demands of OEMs and TIER1s.

Our primary focus is the development of mechanical parts and assemblies made from different materials (aluminum, steel, aluminum and steel sheets, plastics…) We offer: communication with the OEM customer, product definition, 3D modeling, validation by computer simulation of a product and production process, D-FMEA, etc. In cooperation with our partners we can provide manufacturing and testing of prototypes.

We do product and tool development for other industries as well.

Value engineering

In the process of value engineering we review the new or existing product and find a way to reduce cost and improve functionality to increase the product value. When we achieve the most cost-effective way of production without taking away any of the products’ functionalities and/or improve it, our objective is met. Cost reduction must never affect the quality of the product.

We have developed or re-engineered many parts, from a simple bracket to a complex electric motor assembly. Often just a minor modification of the product definition can have a great effect on the value increase. Sometimes, a total redesign and change of production technology is required to achieve the best functionality-to-cost ratio – best value.

Lightweight design

Product weight reduction is the key goal of product development. We have many years of experience with creation of products whose shapes are influenced by different technologies. We also work with modern tools such as topological optimization and parametric optimization.

For advanced optimizations supported with computer simulations, we use in-house developed programs, as well as commercial programs where necessary.

Optimiztion of manufacturing processes

With advanced computer simulations we optimize a wide range of manufacturing processes (sheet metal forming, massive forming, plastic injection molding and sintering). Optimization is most often performed in cases with production problems such as cracks, inadequate dimensions, high percentage of scrap or in cases where the production process appears to not be feasible. The optimization of the production process is done in the following steps:

  • analysis of problems and causes;
  • computer simulation of the production process and identification of key problem areas;
  • improvement proposals and computer simulation of improved status;
  • test in practice.
