Support from the Harro Höfliger expert team
We perform extensive tests in order to identify the ideal technology variants to apply to manufacture a product. We develop new technologies and improve existing ones consistently so that our machines and system not only satisfy your requirements, but exceed them.
We perform feasibility studies and conduct evaluations to determine which process variant is best suited to solving your technical problem. The goal is to achieve a smooth transition from the initial test modules to prototype construction, up to a high performance production system.
Future-forward technologies for innovation products: With several decades of development and production experience, we can fall back on the best preconditions to implement creative ideas into reliable solutions. This allows us to react quickly to market trends and create new trends ourselves.
“New roads to commercial success”
Tinkering is part of the day-to-day business for the 16-member Engineering & Innovation Services team at Harro Höfliger. Achim Wolf, Innovation Manager and Director of the Engineering & Innovation Services, explains how they can also find solutions for technical challenges off the beaten paths.
Tell us about how the team is made up.
In our Engineering & Innovation Services team, we bundle a broad range of skills and many years of experience in our product and process development. This allows us to take an integrated approach in finding solutions to our problems: For example, engineers work closely with experts from design, mechatronics, control and pharma technology. What we all have in common is our enthusiasm to find creative solutions for complex problems.
What advantages do your services provide?
With our expertise and our performances, we can reduce development risks and improve product quality. This allows our customers to achieve their goals faster. We see ourselves as a competent innovation partner and a guarantee for success.
Which paths are followed when creating innovations?
Many novel solutions come about when we collaborate with our customers; we refer to this as the co-innovative process. You can rest assured that we, as a technology leader, will be able to find the right idea and the ideal technical implementation for your task. We are also productive on our own behalf and initiate the innovation processes ourselves.
Who are the “movers and shakers” of innovative ideas in your team?
The innovative spirit is firmly anchored within our company culture. Innovation management uses fixed processes to ensure that great ideas ignited by all employees are followed up on consistently and in a structured manner. We see innovation as a growth motor just as much for our customers as for Harro Höfliger.
