Expertise & Development: we employ digitalization and leverage advanced software and data analytics to enhance efficiency.
Our expertise and a glimpse into the future
Experience high standards and quality
Operating by high standards and quality criteria, we are committed to consistency and delivering top-notch products and services across all areas of our production.
When expertise & development are involved, our dedication to continuous improvement and innovation allows us to stay abreast of technological advancements and adapt to market demands. The heart of our company lies in a team of experts dedicated to the first-rate execution of every project, regardless of its size or complexity.
Expertise & development
We operate based on the 5 pillars of quality.
Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a systematic technique we use to identify and assess potential failure modes or weaknesses in the process, product, or system. It helps us understand the effects of failures and enables us to take preventive measures to reduce risks.
Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) is a structured approach to product development, focusing on ensuring quality throughout the entire product lifecycle. It involves planning, defining requirements, creating design and production documentation, and risk assessment.
Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is a procedure through which we demonstrate our ability to consistently produce parts that meet the required specifications. The process includes submitting samples and accompanying documents to the customer for approval before full-scale production begins.
Control Plan (CP) is a document describing procedures and strategies for monitoring and controlling process parameters to ensure product quality and consistency. It includes details about measurement systems, process control, and plans for addressing deviations.
Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) comprises a set of methods used to assess or ensure the accuracy and stability of measurement systems present in the production process. It helps us determine whether the measurement system is reliable and capable of providing accurate data for decision-making.
We have implemented two industry standards in the production process:
VDA (Verband der Automobilindustrie) is a standard developed by the German automotive industry for the assessment and certification of process (automotive) suppliers. VDA 6.3 is designed as a guideline for evaluating quality and improving processes, ensuring an appropriate level of quality in the automotive supply chain.
This standard focuses on ensuring the quality of products and is intended for assessing key processes related to the design, development, and production of automotive components. The purpose of this standard is to ensure that products meet high requirements for quality, reliability, and compliance.

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PHASES
Product development involves several stages: planning, testing, manufacturing, and optimizing the product for mass production. In each phase of product development, the collaboration of engineers, designers, technologists, experts, and other key stakeholders is crucial to ensuring the success of the final product.
Our close collaboration with orodjarstvo Križaj (toolmaking), where they provide assistance and development from sketch to tool, is essential for ensuring the high quality of the final product.
The first phase of product development involves planning key features, dimensions, and geometry of the product, designing engineering drawings, and planning tools for pressure die casting.
In the second phase, we manufacture the tool or mold, which will later be used for mass production of the product in the foundry. The mold is crucial as it enables precision and consistency with each product.
The third phase involves testing the tool to ensure quality and functionality, followed by any necessary adjustments and improvements to the tool.
In the fourth phase, we conduct a production test, manufacturing the product in limited batches to verify if the production process aligns with expectations. We identify and address any potential issues. Quality and safety tests are conducted to ensure the product meets all required standards.
Based on test results, the fifth phase involves corrections and optimization of the production process. The goal is to achieve a stable and efficient production process that ensures high product quality and minimal waste.
Once the production process is optimized and thoroughly tested, the sixth phase begins with mass production of the product. In our foundry, we start manufacturing products in larger quantities and then deliver them to the customer.
Alongside mass production, the content phase is continuously carried out throughout the product's lifecycle. We conduct quality control to ensure product compliance with all standards and requirements. Simultaneously, we implement continuous improvements to processes and products to enhance efficiency, quality, and responsiveness to market changes or customer demands.
