Prototype manufacture and production as one-off items or in small or large batches

If you require specific hydraulic components or component groups that are not available off the shelf, the HANSA‑FLEX prototype manufacturing teams are always pleased to help. We manufacture individual items to suit customer specifications, drawings or a sample, bring the prototype into first use, and, if required, advise and assist you with the product to reach series production readiness. With specialist knowledge, certifications and state-of-the-art machines, we create efficient solutions to meet every challenge.

Prototype manufacture, the complete process

Prototype manufacture with HANSA‑FLEX includes design, manufacture, quality control, bringing into first use and advice and assistance up to series production readiness.

Customised prototypes in line with customer specifications

If you require a hydraulic component or component group that is not available anywhere on the market, you do not need special technical knowledge or a drawing with HANSA‑FLEX. We take your individual requirements for the component or component group, design it and prepare the final drawing. We are able to implement your specific requirements with respect to functionality, dimensioning and weight precisely. Of course, we further develop the drawing jointly with you until we have the optimum solution for your project.

Manufacture and quality assurance and compliance with standards

For the manufacture of prototypes, we draw on our comprehensive know-how, state-of-the-art production facilities, numerous certifications and our practice-proven quality management system.

  • Manufacturing in accordance with all the relevant standards
  • Precision parts produced in 5-axis machining centres
  • Operatives certified for complex welding procedures
  • Approvals for rail transport vehicles and maritime applications
  • Extensive tests on our in-house test benches

Bringing into first use, advice and assistance up to series production

No prototype leaves our production facilities without undergoing a thorough individual approval process. If the prototype is to go into series production, we are there to advise and assist you all the way to series production readiness and can undertake its manufacture in-house at HANSA‑FLEX or at the premises of one of our expert partners.

  • Bringing into first use in-house or at the customer’s premises
  • Adjusting the components to the customer’s individual set-up requirements
  • Small and large batch series production at attractive terms

Prototype manufacture using skills from different disciplines

For prototype manufacture, HANSA‑FLEX calls on its highly specialised hydraulic engineering teams.

Prototype manufacturing in hydraulics generally involves expertise in numerous specialist areas of work. For many components in an individual component group to be made to match one another requires access to specialist competences in a wide range of disciplines. In order to manufacture prototypes, HANSA‑FLEX brings together competences in the fields of special fittings and metal working, comprehensive know-how of cylinder construction, sealing technology, power unit manufacture and in many other areas of expertise.

Prototype manufacture to suit the customer’s need

Prototype manufacture at HANSA‑FLEX begins with consultation without condescension between equal partners, which results in a product that fulfils the highest functional and quality standards in the desired application.

We support our customers in the design of new machines and systems and follow traditional prototype manufacturing practices. If valve blocks, cylinders or power units have to be integrated into a new design, we are available to advise and assist you throughout the complete prototyping process.

If your requirements are not those of traditional prototypes but the development of unique products, for example for trial systems, we would be delighted to put our specialist knowledge at your disposal. We design and manufacture special components, including those subjected to unusual loads and with unusual dimensions.

Replacement parts for older machines and systems are often no longer available on the market. We measure samples and manufacture corresponding components. We are able to incorporate new knowledge and legal requirements while increasing their efficiency.

We see prototyping has not only suitable for individual parts and components. By taking a highly interdisciplinary approach, we bring together all our specialist knowledge and extensive manufacturing skills to build components that are individually manufactured but matched to one another into component groups.
