Managing the change

In the colour and application centre, our experienced team tests the resilience of products, new technologies and production processes. The prototype centre is where the idea becomes tangible and is adapted to customer requirements with the goal of attaining a product that is ready for series production.

Colour and application centre

Climatic testing, environmental simulations, mechanical testing and surface testing ensure that products can meet the exacting standards. In our accredited test laboratory, we offer customers an extensive testing portfolio for a variety of production processes. 

The colour technical centre is where Novem quickly implements surface adaptations or changes according to customer needs. The centre works with technologies like spray applications and screen printing and a variety of materials. No colour or surface is too specific for the technical centre. 

Whether it is multi-component injection moulding, polyurethane, screen printing or laser technology, the R&D technical centre is where we drive development. This is where we test new processes used in surface finishing or trial conventional processes on new materials.

Prototype construction

Prototypes make ideas tangible. Novem creates or processes prototypes for the automotive industry and manufactures tools and moulds in accordance with CAD data. Our committed team works with materials like natural wood, aluminium, premium synthetics, carbon and other fabrics.

Pioneering and innovative prototypes are created thanks to incredible expertise in laser, filler and sensor technology as well as in 3D printing.
