Custom product development

Solutions for the automotive industry

Hardly any market goes through a similar amount of major technical advances and innovations as the automotive sector. As an automaker or supplier you are committed to accommodating growing customer needs as flexibly and quickly as possible.

That’s where our work begins. We offer custom tailored development solutions for vehicle specific accessories and components. It takes us only a few months to complete such projects. After all, we are keenly aware of how important it is to be able to respond to market developments in the shortest time possible.

Our perfectly aligned team of engineers and product designers continuously develops and realizes new, innovative technical solutions. We place immense importance on comprehensive and growing expertise and of course deploy state-of-the-art machinery.

Some of the products for which we have developed solutions are:

  • Inductive charging solutions

  • Facia Plates

  • Antennas

  • Operating elements for cars

  • Cable sets

  • And other (vehicle specific) solutions

Our product development cycle

From idea to series solution in just a few month

As a system supplier, we take care of all required steps. The process begins with project planning, 3D scanning, design, prototype construction and continues with the verification and validation based on OEM criteria and ends with series production. All quality determining project steps are completed in Germany – engineered in Germany.

Regardless of whether you already have a very concrete concept or just a vague idea – project planning with us begins with a detailed pre-project meeting.

Our 3D laser scanners enable us to compile detailed scans of components, cockpits and free form surfaces in any contour and size for reverse engineering purposes, which results in the delivery of a precise basis for CAD design work.

Our product development department deploys CAD to implement the component designs or component groups based on scan data or original vehicle data.

We handle the construction of prototypes in-house. For this purpose, we manufacture functional prototypes by deploying, for instance, the Fused Deposition Molding Method. Our customers as well as our own staff also like to use prototypes to write installation manuals. Ultra-modern machines are used to make prototypes, e.g. our new object printer. We are continuously updating our machine fleet and add state-of-the-art equipment that use the latest production techniques.

We perform verification tests in accordance with the specifications booklet as well as installation tests with the manufactured prototypes to optimize the concise fit of our solutions. If necessary, we have the capability to make adaptations later. We are in a position to promptly respond to change requests.

Of course we will be pleased to handle the qualification and validation or homologation in compliance with OEM standards.

At our Erkelenz plant in Germany, we manufacture small series to large series of premium supplies. Our modern, comprehensive fleet of machines enables us to process a variety of materials.

These are some of the machines we use in our manufacturing processes:

  • CNC milling machines
  • Jet machining center
  • Surface finishing machines
  • Folding machines
  • Fully automatic Komax systems
  • Object printers / various 3D printers
