Development and Design

We develop and design customized solutions for your tasks. Throughout all project phases, your contact person is consistently responsible for you:

      • Concept and proposal preparation
      • Project planning and development
      • Design
      • Assembly
      • Commissioning and testing
      • Service and customer support

Development and design are carried out by our designers in individual and team responsibility. The design drafts are created according to specifications/brief or proposal. After confirmation of the detailed design documents by the customer, the completion of the design follows. After internal design release, the designers place orders with our Mechanical Production. About 98% of the manufacturing parts are processed in-house. Selection and external procurement of purchased parts are carried out by the project-responsible designers. Customer preferences regarding preferred suppliers are considered. The purchasing of parts is done centrally. Assembly, commissioning, sampling, and customer pre-acceptance take place at our company. After customer approval with acceptance or test protocol (e.g., according to VDA), the delivery takes place. Service and maintenance are undertaken by the project-leading department. The assembly rooms are located directly next to the design department. The assembly management is handled by the project-responsible designer.
