Product development

Are you looking for new ways to differentiate yourself from your competitors? Do you want to translate your brand potential into meaningful, desired products and services?

Our dedicated team consists of designers, engineers and builders who love solving complex puzzles. We think in terms of scenarios, opportunities and risks, experiment to find the solution and can guide you through the entire product development process. A team of designers and engineers develops concept solutions for your new product. Using visualisation and prototyping techniques, we test, refine and present new concepts.

Product development

From the start of a product development project, designers and engineers work closely together in well-balanced teams to find the best solution for your new product. By exchanging knowledge and making use of each other’s experience, solutions are optimally aligned.

Our engineers work out technical concepts into a prototype or mass-produced product so that the handover to production partners runs seamlessly. We coordinate CAD systems and exchangeable files from the client, supplier and npk design for an efficient transfer.

Throughout the entire product development process, prototyping is employed in various ways. We therefore have a very well-equipped model workshop, where we make functional models to test working principles. We also create visual models and prototypes that are indistinguishable from the final product in terms of appearance. Naturally, we also have a number of 3D printers at our disposal for rapidly printing parts to validate solutions.

Product development

The time-to-market for new products and services is crucial. This requires good alignment of the product development process with the realisation process. We support our clients in outsourcing the production of tools, parts, sub-assemblies or entire products.

Our approach results in successful products and services which are often awarded international design prizes. Many clients work with us on a long-term basis – not only because of the impressive results, but also due to the open and pleasant collaboration.
For us, that is the ultimate sign of appreciation.
