“In addition to modern equipment, Relicomp has the facilities and skilled staff required for a product of this size. They have strong expertise in tool design and fabrication, but the key issues have been the strong support and development resources they provided, enabling the efficient launch of the new product rather than focusing solely on the operational level.”
“Relicomp has invested significantly in development. They have seized the right things in the right order and are very systematic especially in operational development and quality control. This kind of operational development can also be seen in Ponsse’s quality and supply reliability. We greatly appreciate Relicomp’s investments in innovation, product development and personnel,” says Tommi Väänänen, director of Ponsse’s supply chain process.
Case: SKS toijala works oy
“When SKS Toijala Works started to develop the new generation of KURO telescopic timber handlers, they wanted to place special emphasis on the design. Traditional engineering was replaced by design because they aimed to achieve equipment that positively stands out from the rest, and above all, is easy to maintain. Chassis panels had to be good-looking, exactly fitting and cost-efficient to manufacture. To facilitate equipment maintenance, panels were designed to be easily removable. This is a remarkable improvement for the user compared to the earlier models.”
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT | PLANNING | INCREMENTAL SHEET FORMING | ASSEMBLY
“At the end of our very first meeting, we started the mechanical engineering design together with Relicomp. Based on draft drawings and main dimensions, Relicomp designed the sheet metal components, while Volter was responsible for devising the plant frame that supports the main components of the plant.”
