Product Development Service
With high-volume production continuously moving to low-cost geographies, more and more product developers are losing the know-how, experience and feel for production, so crucial to designs that can be efficiently produced.
Carmo continues to be amongst the few Danish companies with a fully functional production setup and the competencies, know-how and experience from daily production and hands-on problem solving.
We have it … and we are eager to share that with our development partners.
We leverage our geographical and cultural proximity, to ensure development projects with short turn-around times, high degree of innovation and minimal hassle.
Carmo offers services and support in all phases of product development:
- Product design and mechanical construction / manufacturing engineering
- Process maturing, test, run-in and pilot production
- Ramp-up and volume production
We take pride in finding the setup and approach that suits your project and your specific challenges.
- Our pro-activity and responsibility to deliver viable solutions on time and cost
- Our ability to ensure specific functionality in harsh environments (e.g. after sterilization and in maritime application)
- Our use of robotics and automation to ensure low startup costs and high and sustained quality levels
- Our focus on reducing complexity costs
- Our ability to bridge the designer, the toolmaker and production to make the impossible possible
Take responsibility and work pro-actively to deliver solutions
We take pride in solving complex problems and leverage our full experience within materials, injection molding , automation and robotics.
We mix that with flexibility, an open mindset, an experimental approach and a single-minded determination to solve the problem and meet deadlines.
Our organization is flat and our approach straightforward and task oriented. We will work together with you to find the best solutions and in the process we will probably challenge each other. Only through an honest direct, timely and constructive feedback can we excel.
Ensure specific functionality in harsh environments and after sterilization
We know by experience that plastic processing can be challenging: That the process and material will never perform exactly the same way as last time and that materials behave differently during and after the injection moulding process.
Components will change properties depending on storage conditions, time, assembly processes and sterilisation. And change properties over time in harsh environment, e.g. marine and arctic usage scenarios.
We know how to fine-tune the material recipe and compensate for these changes already in the design and geometry setting stages, ensuring end products with the functionality, surfaces and quality desired.
Reducing complexity costs: Developing for integration and post-processing
One thing is to find a technical solution. Another is to find a commercially feasible solution and yet another is to find solutions that will integrate smoothly and ensure that the processing down the line will run effectively.
We use all of our know-how and experience to ensure that components can be readily integrated into the production processes e.g. assembly, printing, packaging and sterilisation.
In many cases we have even been able to leverage our abilities in robotics and 2K moulding to totally eliminate difficult or expensive post processing and assembly tasks.
Leverage automation and robotics to ensure low startup costs, high flexibility and sustained high quality
Our competencies in high-tech multi-component injection-molding, robotics and automation will ensure you innovative solutions and projects that are delivered on time and cost – with the desired functional features in unsurpassed quality at competitive prices.
Our modular mold system and generic robotics can supply even advanced setups in short time-frames and at minimal costs.
Bridging the magic triangle and leverage our network and make the impossible possible
Computers and simulations can bring you a long way, but never all the way: The last bit will be based on experience, experimentation and innovative thinking.
Successful injection molding development projects are a constant compromise and interaction between Industrial and mechanical designers, toolmakers and production. Only by effectively bridging the world of sketches and 3D modeling – where almost everything is possible, and the world of the toolmaker where nothing is possible can you realize innovative AND cost effective solutions
Through the years we have established a network of Industrial and mechanical designers and toolmakers that we have a successful track record with, however we are always open to cooperate with new partners
