Development and prototype production
From the concept through to series release – we help when fast and reliable solutions are required
We offer our customers cooperation on an individual parts development and component optimization including prototype production in the field of technical springs, stampings and stamped parts as well as gas springs. In this regard, we also provide the know-how to ensure the manufacturability of the product. This ensues in close collaboration with our partners.
In their approach to the development service and prototype production, our companies are geared to the customer-specific requirements as well as the non-binding standards recommended by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) – (project management, product and process development planning, product and process development realisation as well as supplier management).
Our methods and systems for calculating and dimensioning your requirements
- Spring calculations with highly specialised programs for all standard wire springs and band springs
- Finite element structure analyses for stamped and stamped bent parts
- Computer simulations for components and assemblies
- 3D CAD systems for parts and tool construction
- Systems to develop packaging solutions (bulk material or individual packaging in trays)
- Systems for drafting and project documentation
- Endurance and relaxation tests
Prototype and pilot series production
- Representative samples by means of 3D prototype production
- Manufacture of prototypes and pilot series requirements in our own tooling locations and testing departments
