Product Development System

  • Design conceptGood design means good product. Product design that takes safety, comfort and operability into consideration is the basis of product development.
  • 3D Modeling3D product design with Catia ensures accurate data.
  • Structural analysisWe analyze the stress, strain and dynamic characteristics of the mechanical structure and apply the result to the design structure to verify safety at the design stage.
  • Design verification(DV/PV)We check the reliability of the product by testing the developed product using the professional test equipment and concentrate on the development of the customer satisfaction product.
