DEVELOPMENT

From the concept, 3D modelling to production-ready design, ZENTNER turns your ideas into reality..

CASE STUDY IN OUR DEVELOPMENT

Our production film shows exemplary impressions of the process chain in the field of sheet metal mechanics. Follow an excerpt from the production of a computer housing – starting in the development department, continuing through production in the punching laser center and ending in the edge bending center.

BRIEFING - CONSULTING & CONSIDERATION OF ALL CUSTOMER WISHES

A new idea is born, a new product is waiting to be realized: Together, we will define the objectives as well as necessary and optional requirements for the product and compile these in a specification sheet.

Taking your requirements into account, we analyze the possibilities of implementation, examine them for feasibility and cost-effectiveness and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of alternative solutions with you.

Whether it’s a simple sheet metal part, complex assembly or a complete plant – our team of experts provides comprehensive advice on, among other things, material selection, manufacturing processes, the use of electrical and mechanical components as well as machine design and safety.

PLANNING AND CONCEPTION

On the basis of the requirements specification and in close consultation with our customer, the product concept is created in the design phase.

Our well-founded manufacturing know-how is already incorporated at this stage and guarantees a process-optimized and thus economic implementation.

Professional project planning ensures that your time and budget requirements are met in all process steps of the product development.

CAD - MODERN 3D DESIGN METHODS

Today, professional development and production requires powerful software.

Our CAD systems enable presentations, photo-realistic color prints as well as the visualization and simulation of e.g. assembly and function; even before the first parts are manufactured and the first machine is put into operation.

Variants can be designed and manufactured in the shortest possible time, thanks to a uniform database. Fully parametric bending allowances as well as the consideration of specific machine data when calculating the processing ensure the precise implementation of the 3D model and a consistently high quality across any number of series for sheet metal production.

PROTOTYPING - PRODUCTION OF THE PILOT SERIES

All the steps of the project implementation take place in our company.

We make sure that all interfaces are optimally coordinated with each other, thus ensuring a seamless, closed process chain that guarantees a smooth operation.

In this way, we not only guarantee the highest quality, but also enable a fast, reliable prototype and sample production for you and your customer.

MANUFACTURING - MODERN MACHINERY FOR PRODUCTION

After a prototype release, our highly motivated production team and advanced machinery ensures that your product – from small series to mass production – is produced economically, on time and in the highest quality possible.

READY FOR SERIES PRODUCTION - THE FINISHED SERIES MODEL

The end of a successful development cycle:

A product ready for series production, which is not only adapted exactly to your requirements, but also meets your design demands while ensuring an economical production.
