The automotive market is continuously evolving, as testified by the advancements in electrification and autonomous driving (ADAS) fields, and it constantly requires more resources, which subsequently pushes the engineering field towards evolution as well as allowing it to grow.
KGR Elettronica was founded in 2001, and is part of CAAR group since 2014, focused on electronic engineering and electric systems.
KGR Elettronica is and engineering service company specialized in specifications drafting, design, prototyping and validation of electric and electronic systems.
For the aerospace field, engineering consulting services are the simplest way for the industry companies to expand their internal teams with technicians who can support design activities regarding both structural parts and electronic parts, let it be on-board electronics or on land infrastructures.
CAAR is able to offer its clients important knowledge and skills, gained by its experts and technicians through extensive experience in the Industrial vehicles design field, spanning from light, mid and heavy-duty vehicles to cabs and internal/external trims development.
In the Agricultural vehicles field, CAAR has executed important tractor system projects, for the world’s leading manufacturers.
In the railway field, CAAR can support its clients in the development of products or sub-systems, especially regarding the carriage and its components and trims.
For what concerns the infrastructures, CAAR has significant competence in rail signaling systems and rail management systems, TLC systems, superstructures, electric powertrains, mechanical and electro-mechanical systems, and civil engineering structures linked to railway manufacturing.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a digital technology able to disrupt traditional industrial production processes, consisting of a digitalization of the manufacturing process thanks to continuous dialogue between computers and production plants.
Industry 4.0 represents the fourth step of the industrial revolution, which lead to the so-called “smart factories” of today: while the third industrial revolution was about plants automation that would save time, human resources, and cost, the objective of Industry 4.0 is to “automate this automation”.
Logistics represent a field strongly integrated with production processes, especially when talking about Inbound Logistics.
Logistic flow of material management, from factory inbound to the station where the material is transformed, is a key factor for a plant.
Predictive maintenance represents a specific type of preventive maintenance: it consists of constant monitoring of the conditions of an asset, by means of applying particular sensors.
These sensors supply real-time data that can be used to predict when and how the asset is going to need maintenance, if adequately processed and elaborated through mathematical models and algorithms, with the objective of breakdowns and failures prevention.
Process Engineering relates to various competence fields, from mechanics to aerospace and obviously automotive, and studies the various conversion processes of raw materials into manufactured products.
Process Engineering focuses on defining, designing, checking and optimising industrial processes that are taking place inside production plants.
Today’s world is characterized by a continuous technological evolution.
There are several new trends in the industrial world, for example the Internet-of-Things, Industry 4.0 and the sustainability concept with all its ramifications.
In addition to this there are also strong modifications affecting lifestyle, as e-mobility, smart homes and cities, smart medicine, etc.
CAAR product development process consists of the sequence of activities used to draft, design and manufacture a product.
CAAR supports the client during the whole product development activity, from concept design to modifications implementations in order to manufacture the product and its release for production, including customized structural analyses if necessary.
