Product development

1 Concept

Market requirement evaluation and product specs definition by product management. The project team analyzes the technical feasibility and sets a general timeline.

2 Prototyping

After a structural mechanics simulation analysis, the R&D team prepares a CAD model which is used with a 3 axis printing-moulding machine to manufacture the first prototypal batches.

3 Electronics integration

Electronic components are developed and manufactured in-house by Pneumax to be integrated in any system or as interface to any protocol.


The first close-to-series samples are machined, using the latest generation machinery. The first FMEA is prepared.

5 Evaluation and Inspection

Life test and approval. The products are subjected to functional, performance, temperature tests for millions of cycles.

6 Engineering

The engineering department evaluates and adopts the most suitable manufacturing technology and assembly procedure to implement, using 3D simulation programs.

7 Product industrialization

The industrialization team together with the technical department develop any specific equipment and tool required. Suppliers’ evaluation is accomplished.

8 Pilot series release and product audit

Verification and validation that the product meets the requirements.
