Research and Development

Gumotex AUTO Group established new research and development centers in 1 January 2016. This department is responsible for new product development, innovations in existing products and innovations in machinery in all product groups. The designers work on projects in CAD system Catia V5, ProE and Solid Edge. We use Moldflow analysis in the simulations of the plastics.

Equipment Development Centre:

  • dedicated devices for measuring the operating parameters of sun visors
  • 3D scanner with integrated laser and touch probe
  • 3D printer for prototyping
  • climate chambers for thermal specific tests including the simulation of moisture and a device for measuring noise
  • rippers
