Structural engineering

The structure of a system is exposed to enormous forces and consequently has a significant influence on its service life. Our engineers satisfy all your requirements in structural design with lean processes and with the help of state of-the-art software tools.

We are both experienced with using our own in house design principles but also working for large OEM projects using customer specific tools and methods.
