Research and development

Product management

Our product managers advise and support our customers as equal partners. The focus is on the technical problems and needs of our customers, with the aim of achieving the best result. Creating added value for our customers in terms of quality, cost-effectiveness and product innovation is our top priority. This proactive and constructive cooperation makes us a recognised and reliable development partner for our customers.

Product development

Due to our Rapid-Prototyping-Equipment and know-how we are able to provide a fast and cost-efficient production of plastic models in the early concept phase. Potential change in design can early be identified at an early stage to avoid high costs and unnecessary time in the posterior product development process. During a Rapid-Prototyping-Procedure on the basis of CAD-data prototypes are produced by a 3D-printer.

In our in-house tool shop we have the possibility to build near-series prototype tools quick and flexible. These tools could be used to produce components confirming to drawings on series production lines and handle over to our customer e.g. for initial test series.

Tool Design

The development team at E. WINKEMANN consists of qualified engineers and technicians. Close cooperation with the development departments of our customers is appreciated by both sides. The technical exchange in the early development phase of a product leads to successful results.

The development work is supported by other specialist departments of our company, such as our own toolmaking, production and quality assurance. Together, we work on the best technical, economical and timely solution for our customers.

Our development tools are compatible with all common CAD systems from the automotive industry.
