We specialize in real-time projects, usually involving management and monitoring of complex time-critical systems on embedded platforms or in larger environments.

We take on complete projects or work on specific deliverables or components.

Architecture

Choosing architecture for an electric system requires multi-disciplinary expertise. It involves consideration of hardware, cabling, system software, and integration with IT systems. We have expertise and extensive experience in all disciplines.

Through our own product development experience, we know that a basic and functional architecture is essential to develop efficient and maintainable code. A code base must be able to be maintained and enhanced with new functionality without requiring rewrite.  

We have experience in architectural design in both large and small projects..

Software Development

We have several agile development teams, specialized in software development for telematics and industrial products such as manufacturing and monitoring systems. Many of our projects are focused on controlling and monitoring complex and time-critical systems on embedded platforms in large environments.

Depending on the preference of our customers, we work at the customer premise or in one of our offices. We use an established agile and delivery process which ensures that our deliverables meet our customers’ requirements for control and traceability.

We are also excited to help guide our customers in the agile journey to improve efficiency in software development projects.

Model-Based Development

Model-based development may be preferred when developing large, complex systems. The system’s design and architecture are directly connected to the code so all team members get a great understanding of the system functions.

For hardware dependent high-performance systems, model-based development with the associated generated code may be less suitable.

This is however something that our architects will evaluate in pre-studies or at the start of a project.

AUTOSAR

Consat has extensive experience with projects related to the automotive standard AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture). We were involved in the standardization and have since done several implementations of complete stacks.

We have established relationships with product providers of AUTOSAR components and have the skillset to guide customers to make the right decisions.

Precision Mechanics

Miniaturisation is a current trend. Products with advanced functionality can be made smaller than ever, usually involving integrated electronics.

Consat is active in many precision mechanics projects,such as advanced 3D writers, implanted hearing aids, precision mechanical production machines, and development of advanced sensors.

Plastics

We have extensive experience with development of plastic components for both prototypes and mass-production. The foundation of our skills come from our expertise in tool-related manufacturing.

We also have a network of partners and distributors for development and manufacturing of specific niche products.

Sheet Metal

Sheet metal is one of the basic elements of mechanical development and is consequently one of Consat’s strongest areas. We have experience ranging from blinds made of thin sheets to ramps and bow doors for ships.

Product development using sheet metal requires a good understanding of how one can later produce and assemble the final product. One of our biggest strengths is the combination of product and production development.

Consat has a design team with a focus on user interface, interaction design and developing user manuals.

The team works continuously with design of our own products, but is also utilized for external projects.

Based on customer requirements, we will work with customers’ designers or one of our design partners for the industrial design.

Consat has over 30 years of experience with mechanical products and production development. Our deep understanding of both areas make us a strong development partner for initial prototypes to mass-production.

 We are also able to deliver physical prototypes and turn-key production solutions, either ourselves or with our partners.

When developing products, Design for Assembly (DFA) and Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is very important. For our engineers, this design method comes naturally and is an integral step in our development process. Engineers at Consat participate in the installation of the products and machines they have developed, which provides a natural feedback and an increased understanding for the work involved in production.

Consat is frequently hired to assist with the development of advanced specialty machines for manufacturing. To achieve the best total cost, it is essential to find a balance between modifying the products and how much investment is required for the development of the special machines.

Choice of materials is an extremely important parameter for product development since it affects not only function, price, appearance, and production, but also the environment. We have developed Consat Green Guideline, a support for our engineers to develop more environmentally friendly products.

Composite Materials

With carbon fiber composite materials it is possible to achieve structures which are both extremely strong and light weight.

Consat is working closely with several companies to develop new weaving techniques for carbon fiber. With Professor Nandhan Kohkar, we have developed the first weaving machines to produce the carbon fiber weave for Oxeon’s TeXtreme carbon fiber, as well as machines capable of weaving carbon fiber in three dimensions for solid blocks and beams of varying shapes.


Our customers demand high quality and on-time delivery.

There are requirements for transparency throughout the design and development process and we provide final reports of testing and implementation.

We are measured not only by our ability to deliver a quality product, but also by how we provide assurance throughout the development process.

Our objective is to not only meet, but to exceed, customer expectations and requirements. For this purpose we have an established agile-based quality assurance process for all in-house development.

We continuously monitor quality and regularly revise our methods and processes to ensure consistent quality.

Since the company’s founding more than 30 years ago, we have helped customers develop prototypes ranging from small components to complex machines

Realizing our solutions as physical prototypes is invaluable for testing and provides valuable feedback to the continued development work.We develop prototypes with the help of manufacturers in a well established network.

We have also advanced the technology of prototype development through our work with the company Digital Metal, where we developed a new 3D writer that utilizes metallic powder.

Concept Workshops

We have a concept workshop at our headquarters in Partille, Sweden, where we test complete production lines and specialty machines.

At our office in Stockholm, we have a concept workshop for mounting and testing of tools and fixtures.

Having direct access to concept workshops at our development centers, enables shorter development lead-times and better solutions.

3D Writer

When developing a product, there is usually a need for quick verification of the design.

Consat has acquired a machine for development of prototypes using the FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) technique for models in ABS-plastic. The machine is intended to be used as a service in our projects and for our customers. The max size of the models developed is 203x203x305mm. In addition to this machine, we have our own workshop for assembly and basic machining such as turning and milling.
