Develop a new
production process

Bringing a new product to the market

Do you want to develop a new production process?

The development and launch of a new product takes a lot of time and energy. It is important to think about the manufacturability and production method of the product at an early stage during the development process,

During a proof-of-concept project, the product operation, manufacturability or production method can be proven in an effective and simple way. In addition, we can take care of the engineering and realisation of the complete production line.

Our method

Development partner
from A to Z

As product developers, our clients are the absolute experts of the product. As production processprocessts, we can build on this knowledge when we help to bring the product into production. Our engineers are often involved from the ideation and are part of the client’s development team.

Our strength lies in the combination of engineering and machine construction. We have extensive knowledge and experience of the required disciplines: precision mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, software and machining. This allows us to serve you <br>from A to Z.

In 8 clear steps to a solution

Since 1986, we have been specialists in the manufacturing industry. With our roots in the medical device industry, we have extensive experience with critical production processes in a precise and clean environment.

Today, we work for many different industries. What our clients have in common is that precision plays a role to some extent in the production process, there are high quality requirements for the product, and the entire production process consists of various complex steps.

Develop a new production process

Concepting a production method

When you want to bring a new product to the market, it is important to think about the production of the product on a larger scale early on. For example, the production method, manufacturability and the costs involved. This information affects how you want to market the product, the price of the product, and the delivery times you can meet.

You probably have an idea about which production method your product needs. We can think along with you to see if this is the most efficient way. Sometimes a small adjustment to the product or production method can make a large difference in production time and costs. We can validate a production method with a proof-of-concept.

From idea to design

When the production method is clear, the next step is to design and develop the production line. The different production steps are converted into production machines or workstations and the way of transport between the production steps is chosen. As an experienced machine builder, we often do this stage step by step, by first automating one step and then working on the surrounding production steps.

When designing a production line, there are many factors to consider, such as safety, number of operators needed, scalability and the available facilities.

From design to machine

When the design of the production line or production machine has been completed, and the software and operating systems have been developed, the production line can be realised.

Finally, it is important that the line is properly tested and validated to ensure that it works according to the agreed specifications. The production line is delivered with extensive manuals and training for the local technical service or the operators.

In short, developing a new production process is a complex process that requires careful planning and implementation. We are happy to think along with you from ideation to realisation.

We have been doing business with STT to our satisfaction for years, my experience is that STT works very customer-oriented, comes up with innovative ideas on how to solve technical problems and then implements the solutions robustly. Their strenght is the ‘In-house manufacturing of Parts’, which makes them fast and flexible in solving problems. We now have several machines or parts of machines in production that are running to our satisfaction.

The cooperation of STT is very valuable in our innovation projects. In these kinds of projects, collaboration, prototyping, testing, learning and taking the next steps in an open and honest collaboration is of great importance. STT has fulfilled this in a very good way.

At Quooker we have traditionally made our own prototyping tools and production machines. We are now working together with other machine builders. STT is the first party with whom we build machines that we did not dare to think of ourselves. This makes it refreshing to work with STT’s resourceful engineers on our production challenges.

Sustainability plays an important role in every steps of the production chain. You can take this in account in various ways when developing a new production process. We are happy to share our knowledge with you.
