The R&D team contributes to the enhancement of all production stages, assuring productivity, design and development of products, procedure implementation and operational efficiency.
Given our position as “Green Leaders”, our R&D department investigates new ideas for the development for our products. Our product development process follows a cyclical, multi-step process. Starting from conceptualization to the product deployment, the main goal of the process is to develop products according to customer requirements by covering current design and development issues. Such considerations include the identification of customer needs, design for manufacturing, prototyping and industrial design.
The viability of new services or products is validated partly through close cooperation with potential customers. Inputs regarding market trends and needs are provided to the R&D team from the company’s marketing department. These include consumer demands, purchasing methods, product sales and the existence and development of technology across relevant markets.
Our project management system is made up of several frameworks and methods for organizing and monitoring a project’s different stages. Our project management approach includes leading and collaborating with the team to complete the project on time and within budget. Usually, early in the development phase, the project documentation will include a description of this information. The three basic restrictions are budget, time, and scope.
Upon coming up with unique idea, we consult specialist attorneys to determine if there are conflicts with existing IP. Assuming there are no conflicts, all necessary steps are taken with the support of legal specialists in order to filing for a patent with the relevant intellectual property offices.
Thorough feasibility studies provide detailed evaluations, which take into account all critical factors of our projects, forecasting their chances of being successful.
Idea generation often involves a collaborative effort after gathering all relevant information, such as user, marketing, and competition research. The methods for generating ideas appear. Such a process is brainstorming, a group problem-solving technique that encourages the unplanned development of original ideas and solutions.
Concept evaluation is a crucial phase in the R&D process, during which the customers’ perceptions of a potential new product are analysed.
Concept development and testing are both important phases, particularly for new items. It occurs at the very beginning of our projects to aid in the identification of problems and the development of our concepts by taking into consideration the important perceptions, user demands, and needs related to the product.
Following the Proof of Concept (PoC) methodology validates the viability and potential of innovative ideas to support the case for further development, with the end-goal of reaching full-scale production. Our robust PoC process enables us to identify potential technical and logistical issues which may hinder success.
Creating functional prototypes of new components and testing processes with conventional machining and additive manufacturing methods to ensure that functional requirements and technical standards are satisfied.
3D scanners, reverse engineering and smart measuring devices are used for the detailed measurement and analysis of our existing products and tooling, whether this involves the complete virtual 3D model reproduction of physical objects or simple measurements. This enables us to carry out corrective and improvement modifications to our existing products with a high degree of precision and accuracy, or design new products which are better than their predecessors.
Upon materialising a new product, initial samples are verified and validated in close coordination with our QC department, in order to approve its production. During the production, checks by the QC team ensure products are produced to a high standard and superior quality.
