Total Engineering Competence
Being a committed, competent partner skilled in both methods and actual solutions, ITI assists its customers in walking the tightrope between limited resources and high-pressure deadlines in product development.
- Highly qualified project managers with proven areas of expertise in numerous engineering domains know their business and that of their customers.
- We guarantee personal support and a unique customer focus by providing hands-on support as well as globally active service teams, 24/7.
- We incorporate our long-term project experience into the design and enhancement of task-specific models. These enable us to generate significant competitive advantages for our customers.
We provide sound consulting services, e.g.,
- dynamic analysis and optimization of drive components and systems,
- system analysis to eliminate weak points in designs,
- qualitative and quantitative interpretation of simulation results.
Developing the best drives and chassis
The focus is for example on the field of power transmission. In the design of modern drive systems complex interactions of the subsystems mechanics, hydraulics, pneumatics, electronics, magnetics, or thermal have to be paid attention. Because the interaction of engines and drives has to be adjusted by controlled methods both energetic and dynamic.
Being new territory this task raises plenty of questions to developer and engineers. This is where the work of the ITI engineering team begins. We support our customers in the dynamic analysis of drives and chassis as well as energy-efficient and low-vibration drive designs. Also the analysis of asymmetric working gears and drives, kinematics analysis, electromechanical modeling of different engines, natural frequency and vibration analysis, design of hydraulic systems, as well as efficiency analysis considering any non-linear losses are ITIs expertise focuses.

Analyzing dynamical systems
A second field of attention is the field of fluids. Fluid technical systems are unique regarding their complexity: more components, flexible geometries, non-linear behaviour and different physical requirements pose a great technical challenge for developers. Here, too, ITI engineers are sought-after project partners in analyzing the behavior of fluid technical systems.
From the development of hydrostatic drive concepts, pressure and proportional valves controlled fluid technical drives in mobile machines and energy-efficient pneumatic handling systems through to network and reluctance models for electromagnets and parameter models for pneumatic ejectors ITI project managers know their crafts.
