The product development team designs components and modules by performing the following tasks:
- 3D design using CAD tools
- FMEA: failure mode and effects analysis
- Support for the search for new materials and optimal selection of materials (evaluation of replacement of metal parts with plastic parts)
- Quality assurance
- Design in compliance with environmental considerations- Ecodesign
- Benchmarking studies
- Reverse engineering
- Design validation: calculation tools, rapid prototyping and testing (please check the corresponding areas)
Equipment design: moulds, tools and manufacturing fixtures
- Manufacturing, control and testing equipment design.
- Injection mould design assistance.
- Injection and stamping process simulation with the possibility to analyze and advise during the product design and the mould design.
- Injection testing and mould fine-tuning. CTAG is equipped with an Engel plastic injection machine with 350 t clamping force.
