Development & Design

We develop a solution that is both technically and economically suitable for your application based on your customer specifications. First, our experienced employees turn your idea into an initial, rough functional model. The detailed design is created based on this initial model.

Variety is our strength

Over the course of several decades, we have gained an extensive amount of expertise in the development and production of individual parts and complete drive systems. This ensures that we don’t have to re-invent the wheel each time. In every new development, you will benefit from this wealth of knowledge and expertise and from our problem-solving prowess that we have gained from work on numerous applications. A separate development team for custom engineered drives supervises every project from specification to volume production and ensures that the final result is both technically and economically sound.


Our employees turn your idea into a functional model using state-of-the-art CAD and calculation software, the most precise analysis methods, and decades of experience.
We place the highest priority on error prevention to achieve an optimum result. Sources of errors are detected at an early stage and possible weak areas are eliminated. The Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is used starting in the development stage. FMEA is continuously used through to the end of the prototype phase. All processes are certified according to the ISO 9001 quality standard.

The Franz Morat Group has over 110 years of experience in metal processing and 50 years of experience as a pioneer in plastic injection molding. The Franz Morat Group creates drive solutions that benefit from the advantages both material groups have to offer. Benefit from the fact that we incorporate the respective material properties for smooth operation, weight reduction, fatigue strength, durability or noise minimization into the design at a very early stage of the project.
