From the freehand sketch to the finished product
The PAYER development team places high demands on itself and is always trying to be one step ahead of the customer's expectations. This can be achieved by an international R&D team in Austria and China of about 30 highly qualified employees in addition to a high level of experience. The competences range from the development of individual plastic parts up to the complete electrical appliances with electronic, punching and bending components. We are primarily involved in the personal care, medical and automotive sector.
Entering the process at every stage is possible
Customer orientation comes first at PAYER. Therefore, the entry in the engineering process is possible at any time. When entering early, customers profit from very efficiently designed downstream production processes.
CORE COMPETENCES IN DEVELOPMENT
To ensure efficient product development, PAYER uses CATIA V5® including PLM. The designs are largely implemented in the free-form surface design and the CAD data of the plastic parts are tested for manufacturability with the program Moldex3D.
PAYER offers individual electronics development using Eagle® and LTspice® as well as software development and prototype construction for PCB boards. The long-term experience in the approval of electrically operated small appliances completes the portfolio.
Our specialist competence in prototyping assures to react quickly and efficiently to potential doubts regarding optics, haptics and function. Here, PAYER can use the in-house 3D printing (2K-polyjet) as well as the small-series production of tools.
Testing & quality assurance
Every product manufactured by PAYER leaves the company after a series of product and customer-specific tests. PAYER develops product specifications as well as validation plans and carries out concept, design and process FMEA-analyses. In the test laboratories temperature, reliability and consumption tests, force measurements as well as optical measurements are conducted, which are always adapted to the current customer requirements.
Initial purchasing integrates suppliers into business processes at an early stage and enables precise cost structure analyses. The partnership-based approach with suppliers is an integral part of the global procurement concept of PAYER.
The development team relies on long-term, competent and reliable partners in the following areas:
- Industrial design
- IP rights (patent, utility, design protection, etc.)
- Technical offices for FEM calculations
- External support for prototype components with special features
SMALL SERIES - exclusive manufacturing and assembling competences
Process know-how in the small series production
Producing small lots require special processes and process know-how for all phases from development over industrialization to production. PAYER’s project team develops optimal solutions together with the costumer. During this joint development all competences of our prototyping resources can be used. This brings immediate first results, which are tangible to the customer and pave the way for further manufacturing.
The core element of the small series is the powerful tool making in Austria. High-quality tools from the rapid tooling program are available within just a few weeks and make the products ready for series production. During as well as after the development phase, PAYER guarantees a high degree of flexibility regarding adaptations and changes.
Manufacturing and assembly
According to customer requests, we manufacture a wide range of plastic components and systems for the medical, automotive, household and industrial sectors on modern injection molding machines with a clamping force of up to 550 tons. With our assembly capacities, we offer customers the opportunity to have small series prefabricated or finished with us. Thereby, we ensure the highest standards under constant and controlled quality.
Target group orientation is prioritized
PAYER offers the highest degree of flexibility to guarantee the largest possible customer orientation. From individual pieces to prototypes made of original plastics, from small series in highest quality to large series, as well as from simple plastic parts to ready-packaged electrical appliances. Besides, our customers can use the additional production facilities in Hungary or China. All from one hand!
PAYER is your partner regarding bringing the first product ideas to life and testing the market ability of a product. The gathered knowledge in this process can, if required, be quickly transferred to the large-scale production process - right up to a fully automated manufacturing solution.
Exclusive and high technology components
PAYER is focused on small series of high-quality which are individualized and therefore not for the mass market. This often involves the finishing of the parts, the manual assembly and individual parts packaging. All steps are always supported by a well-established global purchasing and supplier structure.
