Our reverse engineering R&D centers are located in each production facility to ensure the development of solutions adapted to production constraints. We put a virtue into developing efficient remanufacturing processes, such as custom-made components testing equipment, development of components repairing methods, electronic discharge protected area setup, use of 3D printing for critical plastic parts, and communication bus decoding (Flexray, CAN, LIN), that will ensure the optimal quality of our products.
We are flexible in the development and specification of processes as well as checkpoints in cooperation with our customers. We have dedicated laboratories in our factories used by our R&D engineers for their activities.
Our R&D employees have strong mechanical and mechatronic engineering competencies. They work in a structured organization to develop new references for our existing product portfolio, new reman processes, and new tools. They are therefore a highly valuable support for close cooperation with our customers.
The "Product learning and Technology sharing" activity is based in CPI Belgium. A dedicated team is in charge of ensuring product and technical knowledge across the whole organisation. A focus is put on product range extension opportunities and providing support for the analysis of potential interest raised by you, our customer, on remanufactured products outside our existing range.
To ensure cutting-edge content sharing and extensive opportunity analysis, the team is continuously striving to collect inputs to monitor the main technological trends, with a particular focus on the development of the automotive industry and the vehicle components’ evolution.
As one of the key levers for this purpose, a wide network of partners within the academic domain has been established over the years and currently represents a valuable source of information. Specific and unique activities like the Reman Challenge are set up to maintain a dynamic level of interaction: Students are invited to come up with ideas for how to frame the future of automotive remanufacturing within this first academic competition.
In addition to our relationship with universities, the CPI Belgium team is also working on alternative ways to boost our overall R&D capabilities by having a broad availability of opportunities and competencies. The Borg Mechatronic Forum, established in 2018, is one of the main achievements of those efforts.
