A reliable partner for your project

Understanding customer requirements

We go through customer requirements and standards. Safety and comfort are the goals for material choices.

Our operating principle is always to understand the customer need and the customer’s process. The close cooperation between the customer and Teknikum is the basis of successful project – cooperation is made between sales, product development and material development.

The project may be about developing a ready-made product or the customer may have encountered a problem in their own processes that requires an individual solution. Together, we define the purpose of the product, the operating environment and the desired function.

Product development support

Method development creates the conditions for mass production. Once the customer’s need is known, we start the technical design of the product in cooperation with the customer.

The choice of material is influenced by many factors: is there a high or low temperature at the using site, is the product exposed to chemicals or is there wearing or other factors? Often a ready-made rubber mixture can be found from our recipes, but sometimes the solution requires material development.

In our product development department, it is possible to do 3D modeling and evaluate the functionality of the product’s shape using FEM analysis. In addition to the choice of material and shape, also the need for polyurethane-coated metal structures, for example, is mapped.

Mold design

In the development of mold products, we utilize 3D modeling. The model can be used to simulate material alternatives through FEM calculation and provide the customer with the most suitable solution. Our own tool manufacturing enables fast deliveries from the design table to the finished product.

Mold manufacturing takes place on CNC machines in our own mold manufacturing department.

The manufacturing techniques we use include e.g. rubber injection molding and layer compression, plastic injection molding and extrusion, tubing with a mandrel, polyurethane molding, reaction molding (RIM) and liquid silicone injection molding.

 

Testing and production

Once the prototype is tested and approved, production can start.

Mass production is carried out in a scalable manner in either Finland or Hungary according to the customer’s wishes. The assembly may include several steps up to the final packaging.
