Usually we are involved in the early stage of the development, even when the specifications are not fully defined. Often a customer comes with an idea of a new machine, typically with the factor 2 question: Can our machine run twice as fast, twice as accurate or can be half the costs? In some cases this can be answered directly based on our expertise. In other cases, especially when not all requirements are clear, a feasibility study is offered. In this study the case is explored a bit deeper. Typically the customer brings in his application knowledge and MI-Partners brings in the mechatronic expertise, based on our mechanical, dynamics & control and thermal competences. At the end of the feasibility study a conclusion is drawn whether a solution can be realized within the specifications and business case. This is well-funded based on hand, numerical or FEM calculations to predict the performance, first sketches of one or more solutions and if required dedicated tests to prove feasibility.
