Constantly looking for new challenges, it is our pleasure to provide you with the most competitive and tailored answer to your needs.
Design and simulation tools.
The skills of our team also rely on the latest I.T. tools.
3D design and calculation programs allow us to imagine the most complicated parts in as much technical detail as possible. Once finalised, the models are then subject to:
- assembly analysis,
- "stress tests" or otherwise known as "resistance tests",
- crash simulations.
The objective? To simulate and predict the real behaviour of products before putting them into service to ensure the best possible quality and reliability.
