PUSHING THE PERFORMANCE OF HIGH-TECH SYSTEMS TO NEW EXTREMES

Technology is changing the world in many ways. Advanced machines and control systems are needed to enable future technological progress. Precision engineering and mechatronics span the scientific and engineering disciplines to provide machines and instruments of improved performance.

 

We master these disciplines and have a proven track record in the development of high-tech systems. Contact us or check our services and see what we can do for you.

OUR SERVICES

Based on more than 10 years of experience we offer assistance in the development of high-tech mechanic and mechatronic systems where precision is key. We can support you from a feasibility study up to a full functioning system.

1. ANALYSE

You have a problem or a new idea and you need an expert? Based on our expertise we can analyze your problem and perform a feasibility study to predict the performance.

2. CONCEPT & DESIGN

When all specifications are known, we start with a concept design and an initial component selection. After consultation with the customer, we will make a detailed design in CAD.

3. MODELING & ANALYSIS

Predictive numerical and FEM models will be made to calculate or simulate the performance. Calculations are made during the design phase to optimize the design and shorten the engineering process.

4. REALIZATION & VALIDATION

The designed system will be realized. Parts will be made by high-quality suppliers and then assembled and integrated in house. Finally, the system will be validated and tested by our engineers.

OUR COMPETENCIES

We have the fundamental knowledge of physics, mechanics, and mechatronics to meet the new extremes of tomorrow. 

SIMULATION & FEM

We have advanced simulation and calculation software to analyze complex systems in an early design phase.

TEST & VALIDATION

We have the experience and equipment to test and validate the performance of a novel design concept or system.

SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE

We can translate overall system requirements into a high-level system design by a multi-disciplinary knowledge and experience.

PRECISION ENGINEERING

We master the design principles of precision engineering to achieve excellent and predictable behavior and avoid hysteresis, drift and an overdetermined system for extreme accuracies and stabilities. 

MACHINE DESIGN

We design machines, tools and test equipment from a simple sketch on paper until a fully detailed 3D CAD model. Both for atmosphere, vacuum or cleanroom conditions.

MECHATRONICS

We are experts in mechanics, electronics and control engineering to design and automate state-of-the-art mechatronic systems.

PROJECTS

We work for many international customers and respect confidentiality.  Therefore we can only show a limited number of projects and information.
