Product design

Arkal excels at helping our customers meet and exceed aggressive targets for weight reduction, safety performance and cost reduction by offering a one-stop process that integrates Smart Product Design, Efficient Process Design and Automated Production under one roof.
We see every project as a challenge to implement our belief that smart design is the key to lighter weight, higher performance products.

Our smart product design philosophy is guided by taking the following steps:

  • Saving weight
  • Lowering cost
  • Improving performance
  • Optimal material choice
  • Efficient manufacturing
  • Component integration

Throughout every step of the design optimization process, we cooperate closely with our customers to ensure that the highest levels of design are reached for each specific part:

    • Receive initial customer design
      FEA (structural analysis)
      New geometry (iterative process with FEA)
      Design optimization
      Finally, we provide a viable "Lighter, Smarter, Better" design
