From challenge to innovative solution

Do you have a mechanical challenge? And is there no clear solution yet?

We work through a number of steps to find the best solution together. We work out different concepts and compare them on the most crucial elements. This results in a concept design for the most suitable solution for the problem.

What does a pre-engineeringproject look like?
First, we get to know each other and your production process. Second, we take a look at the current production process and discuss where improved is possible. Then, we map out the wishes and requirements for the solution. We also look at critical factors that can influence the process in order to respond to this in a timely manner.

Our engineers get to work putting ideas on paper. We work out different concepts and compare them on the most crucial elements to select the best solution. Our customers are often pleasantly surprised with the solutions we provide.

Sometimes we build a prototype to prove (part of) the solution. We also call this phase the proof-of-concept.


For over 35 years

Our expertise in concepting

We have developed in specific areas of expertise:

  • Precision positioning
  • Micro assembly
  • Product handling
  • High-end machine control
  • Medical and high-tech production technologies

Our strength lies in complex automation issues where creativity and innovation are a must. Our clients are often positively surprised by the solutions we offer them.


Do you want to get started on finding the best solution for your challenge? In our knowledge base article about pre-engineering you can read more about conducting preliminary research using a morphological overview and a Pugh matrix.

Our method

The concept is in place,
now what?

When everyone agrees on the right solution, we can look at the next step. At STT Products, we have all the required knowledge and experience to realise the proposed solution if desired. When we want to move ahead, we enter the engineering phase.
