We are an engineering company providing several services in product development.
We are mainly specialized in CAD (Computer Aided Design).
Our team consists of high qualified and motivated engineers to guarantee an extensive know-how, sustainable project solutions and a high level of customer orientation.
Mechanical and Plant Engineering
We are providing development services for the automotive and aerospace industry... as well as for the mechanical & plant engineering and the energy industry.
From the development of a simple component, up to a complex assembly,
We are the specialist and competent partner in product developpement and CAD design.
From the idea as a sketch up to the production matured design,
we offer the complete service chain to our customers.
CAD design (2D and 3D)
Our core competence is the CAD design with Catia V5.
We also provide our design services in a range of other known CAD tools:
FEA (FEM simulation)
FEA tools (Finite-Elemente-Analyse) using the FEM (Finite-Elemente-Methode) allow us to build virtual prototypes and simulate different functional and load cases. It is the best method to optimize and validate the design before building the parts in hardware.
With our experts we simulate your product (function, missuse, etc..) in order to save time and costs in the development and production phases.
Project management & assistance
We provide our customers different services of assistance in the different project phases.
We can even manage the whole project to achieve all the project goals within the given constraints.
From the development of simple components up to complex assemblies, from the idea in a sketch up to the production matured design, we are able to offer the complete service chain of the product development to our customers:
Design of equipment, jigs and cubing:
Design of cubing parts:
Design and building of interior parts in suitable manufacturing processes
Parts design and drawing derivation:
Development of the tonneau cover mechanics from the concept phase to the series production:
With a locking block mechanism developed by us, all three movement sequences of the mechanism (unlocking-driving-locking) could be realized by a single hydraulic cylinder
Design in lightweight construction (sandwich design) with the innovative use of paper honeycomb as a carrier part and PU-GF as an outer composite layer.
Development of roof mechanics from the concept phase up to the series production:
Thanks to a special 13 joints- mechanism, a very harmonious and a low movement curve could be realized. For package reasons, the B-pillar was coupled by a spherical gearbox (3d mechanism) in order to realize an inward movement.
A second movable flap was developed after the SOP. The drive concept developed by Smart Design was implemented using the existing electric motor on the main flap. The staggered and time shifted kinematics was simply realized using a spring and a rope rolls.
The two mechanics were coupled by a cable pull solution and a mechanical spring and thus driven with one hydraulic cylinder on each side.
A very long K-folding roof system with tough requirements such the E-line and the maximum roof height during opening.
With a gear mechanics it was possible for the first time world wide to drive such a big convertible roof fully with a electric instead of a hydraulic power.
Development of one of the first home charger for electrical cars for IN- and OUT- door use.
(Parameterization of boiler systems)
Our engineering team in Tunisia consists of very motivated and talented designers, who are all technical and mechanical graduates with a high know-how and a strong team spirit.
We provide different customer- oriented constellation concepts:
