In the third stage of the product advance development process, our team of engineers, electronics specialists and test mechanics with its many years of experience in the construction of prototypes from mechanical, pneumatic, electrical and electronic components creates a functional prototype. Following a rigorous testing and optimization process, the prototype largely complies with the final product result in terms of its function and design – made possible through the use of state-of-the-art production technologies such as rapid prototyping for the manufacture of individual components in accordance with 3D CAD models and drawings.
The process of constructing the functional prototype frequently reveals that theory does not necessarily equate with practice. This gives rise to a repetitive process of optimization loops through which the product progresses until it matches the requirements set out in the product brief.
Qualification of a new development as the basis for the functional reliability of the final series-manufactured product is achieved by rigorous test runs in combination with prescribed measurements in our own in-house test lab, acoustic chamber and endurance testing facilities.
