OUR MACHINE & ATTACHMENT PROCESS
With five engineering offices and an in-house designer, we develop solutions to meet specific needs, market by market, customer by customer.We use our know-how to simplify, optimise and make our users' jobs safer.This guarantee of a safe handling solution is based on the following process.
LISTENING TO CUSTOMERS
Customer feedback and sharing of their practical needs, for example for particularly high-risk applications: mining, defence, the environment, aerospace, etc.
RESEARCH AND DESIGN
The development teams represent 7% of the Group's workforce. Specific developments are made to adapt the technologies and equipment to each range of machines, providing additional security for users: selection of materials for better consideration of safety, falling load protection, ergonomics, etc.
PROTOTYPES AND TESTS
Development of prototypes and starting of tests (stability, acoustics, vibration, visibility):
- Vibration of hands, seat, arm
- Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
- Field of vision
- Seat belt anchor point
- FOPS-ROPS cab
Connecting an unsuitable attachment is likely to endanger the user and third parties.The priority of our Attachment Competence Centre is the safety of the machine-attachment pairing.This unique validation procedure provides maximum security for the machine and the operator.The machines undergo endurance testing and bench testing.
Our test days or warm-ups enable the machines to be tested by customers and the Research & Development department then analyses and processes their feedback
THIRD-PARTY HOMOLOGATION AND VERIFICATION
We attach the utmost importance to compliance with current regulations (noise, visibility, steering, braking).All of the machines designed to lift personnel are approved by a notified body.
INDUSTRIALISATION & DELIVERY
All of the machines that leave the Group's factories undergo an operational test in which all of their features are tested.
TRAINING AND CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT
The Group provides training for dealers, distribution network technicians and customers who want it, with the aim of ensuring a consistent service and maintenance quality worldwide.
