It may start with something like “our vision/goal is to …” Or some comments similar to these seem floating around: “It might work this way or let’s try that…” Ideas have many driving forces. And they can take on many forms: manual sketchs, just visions in your mind, or whatever.
What counts, is that our project managers are specialists in grasping ideas, understanding concepts and sharpening them. Share your product idea with us. It may well be the beginning of a successful mutual endeavour.
How is a good idea transformed into a viable product design?
By utilizing our expertise. For a starter, our technicians generate an initial CAD representation of the basics. The objective is to highlight the technical issues involved and to provide the crucial inputs for costing. The idea now starts evolving into a product.
The next step is vital: you provide us with performance targets and goals, in other words, what your product “must do”. Together we then define how to meet these objectives re. the product itself and the manufacturing process involved. Questions to be answered are typically: How can a desired function be realized technically in the most cost-efficient manner? Which material is suitable? Which forces and/or environmental stress is the product subjected to – and which surfaces can deal with these?
Our expertise and indepth know-how will provide you with doable suggestions for the most economical way of manufacturing Class A products – yours.
A well designed tool is the prerequisite for any successful large scale manufacturing activity. With the help of high-performance 3D CAD and CAM tools, we can design and make tools in-house, that enables you to make products which are unique and competitive. That is what we call “perfect design”.
Before a series goes into production at Fuchs Metalltechnik, everything is set up precisely. This guarantees high product quality and a reliable production process. This goes for small and large series.
Over and above: We control our production tailored to your demands i.e. we deliver your products In the right quantities exactly when you need them.
We were certified according to ISO 9001:2008 as one of the first companies in the region. Ever since, we have been continuously honing our system in quality management – and already strive to meet the requirements of ISO/TS 16949 for highest system and process quality.
However, “Quality“ comprises more than QM at Fuchs Metalltechnik. All our manufacturing processes, which have an impact on the environment, are managed according to the guidelines of ISO 14001 in order to meet our ecological targets.
Reasonable costs for small quantities, low storage costs, and reliable shipping are a must for our customers. But we even guarantee pre-scheduled delivery times – because we take warehousing and logistics seriously.
That means thinking through the mechanics in this realm. Result: our system of “Rhythmic Work Scheduling” We divide production orders into sensible lot sizes, the crucial factor being “sensible”. Without dwelling into our secrets, you profit from high punctuality and low costs.
When we at Fuchs Metalltechnik deliver a finished product to our customer we really mean finished: ready for installation or for use, no matter if it is a terrace fastener or a machine part.
Exact work in the development phase, highest accuracy in production and carefully tailored deliveries form the guarantee for this.
Reaching the finish line means staying on course, even if hurdles appear. At Fuchs, designated specialists of metal technology prevent you from tripping over hurdles, the whole way through. Always available with valuable advice, they share your first ideas, support and enhance your design process, optimize work scheduling, fine-tune PPS and tweak the costing.
But the finished product is not the end, by no means …
ONLY A “FORWARD”.
Customers and their special demands are the key to successful products . We know this very well. This is why we consistently focus our attention on our customers.
Attention and partnership – now and for as long as you need us…
At Fuchs Metalltechnik, experienced engineers, committed office staff and dedicated project managers are at your disposal.
Together with you, they use every chance to make your product even more competitive than it already is. Even if your production run is already over, their willingness to advise is not.
