Selection of the optimal manufacturing process


Although components can be produced using different processes, each process has specific capabilities, strengths and weaknesses. Both the initial determination of the optimum process for new developments and the testing of technological alternatives for existing components are carried out by our manufacturing experts.


A) Definition of the target

  • Reduction of procurement costs
  • Realization of special quality features
  • Implementation of key functional features

B) Analysis of specific characteristics

  • Quantities
  • Material
  • Geometry (shape, dimensions, wall thickness etc.)
  • Quality (surface quality, dimensional, form and positional tolerances etc.)
  • availability of technology, suppliers & contract manufacturers
  • and so on

C) Documentation of the results

D) Recommendation for an optimal manufacturing process
