Electronics development forms the basis of many innovations: the Internet of Things (IoT), devices for the interconnection of sensors and actuators or new solutions for electronic measuring and control systems, such as new evaluation electronics. Often, however, it is also a matter of smoothly adapting existing products to new markets. By applying adaptation developments or comprehensive redesigns, we provide product facelifts and optimised components or adapt user interfaces to the requirements of different markets.
Example: automated production in the paper industry
We have developed a sensor system for paper production in order to completely cover all physical manufacturing parameters. All key production data are recorded, pre-processed and stored. This enables us to apply all production-relevant parameters to optimise the production process or to improve quality. The information can be integrated into higher-level control systems and into the ERP system via implemented interfaces.
Service for obsolescence management
One of our many services in the engineering sector is obsolescence management. Product cycles are becoming shorter and shorter, market variants are becoming more diverse, and it is often not possible – particularly for products with a long lifetime – to ensure component variability until the end of the product life. In the redesign process, we ensure that circuit boards, firmware or functional software are adapted accordingly.
In cooperation with an established partner for electronics manufacturing (EMS), we create the possibility to produce the first functional prototypes even during the development phase. In doing so, we pay particular attention to component availability and component costs. Furthermore, we can provide further support for the product during series production, delivery, after sales and services, right through to the end of production and end of life. The product owners always remain the actual customers.
