Research and development

We provide our profound expertise in order to optimise or develop your components. We support you in finding the combinations of material, manufacturing and heat treatment that are suitable and practicable for your tasks and for a given stress situation.

Do you have any questions on our R&D?

Seeing clearly might simply require a change in perspective.

Only the right combination of component design, manufacturing methods, materials and heat treatment ensures a performance that will give components their required strength and a long service life.  

Owing to the variety of steels and heat treatment procedures with all their variants, it is possible to offer optimal solutions for the different component requirements.  

In the process, the right choice of material type and heat treatment plays a significant role in determining whether the properties required for the operational use of the component are configured on a tailored basis.  

Customer-specific process development, upscaling and series production of your components is one of the core tasks of RUBIG Research & Development.

We help you achieve clear analysis results and sustainable optimisations:

  • Designing or improving your components
  • Developing your components through to series production
  • Developing design and manufacture solutions with stress and heat treatment properties in mind
  • Failure analysis
  • Specifying optimum test methods for the control of heat treatment quality
  • Specifying drawing specifications and tolerances for heat treatments
  • Selecting the appropriate material and heat treatment on the basis of component requirements and design
  • Specifying the right strategy for your heat treatment
  • Commissioning the heat treatment
