Polygon's practice of interdisciplinary teamwork stands out as the company's defining strength. After all, effective and innovative product development can only succeed based on close cooperation between product designers and engineers. Only in this way can the whole variety of different factors – look and feel, technology, function or costs of manufacture – be brought together in one ideal concept.
Our development team keeps a keen eye on all these factors to create the best possible solution for your technical products.
Our product designers are focused on creating and developing series products that meet the following main considerations: look and feel, housing development, user interfaces, materials and rapid prototyping. They are mindful of every aspect that future users will see or touch, focussing on aesthetic quality, product personality and customer affinity. We use our CAD systems to visualise even the most nascent ideas, enabling tight control over geometric, mechanical or financial specifications from the very inception.
The following premise describes in a nutshell how Polygon engineers approach technical and mechanical concepts for innovative products: to enhance function at low cost of production. In this context, aspects such as ergonomics, vandal-proofing, reliability and manufacturing costs are tailored precisely to suit customer requirements. Frequently this yields entirely new products – adding to our already numerous patents.
We manage this process with our enterprise-wide CAD/CAM system, used by everyone involved. Using this system, the experts can directly access data needed for rapid prototyping, FDM printing, tool construction, FEM analyses and the like.
At Polygon, seven defining principles characterise each stage in the development process, delivering the certainty needed for successful products:
