Advice. Production. Support. At ODU, we develop customized solutions based on our vast pool of know‐how and expertise. Our decisive advantage? Every single one of our four production and development steps takes place in‐house. This is how we ensure that each of our connections meets your exact requirements.
Your individual requirements form the basis for every successful project. At a face‐to‐face meeting, our office and field staff learn about your specific applications, specifications, and goals. Together with our in‐house manufacturing and quality assurance experts, we thus develop the perfect connection for your requirements.
With development centers in Germany, the USA, and China, we are always nearby – no matter where in the world you are located. You thus benefit both from a regional point of contact and the global networking of our in‐house research teams.
From idea to prototype – our team of around 100 design specialists will check and optimize the technical feasibility of your connection. Our work is based on the latest scientific standards – we are always willing to go that decisive step further to develop revolutionary technologies. We create initial simulations to accelerate the path to the initial prototype.
From the very beginning of the design process, our in‐house prototyping teams use state‐of‐the‐art equipment to create the first dummy versions of your connector. You can then test these dummies to check whether their shape and size are viable under real‐world conditions.
After successful development, the product goes to our in-house production team, some of whom will have been involved in the planning and design processes from the outset. In this way, we ensure that your product can be built exactly in accordance with your requirements and our designs – with no wasted time.
Not every plug or connection can be realized immediately. If new tools are required, we will design these at the same time. In our tool shop, the required specialist tools are produced via a high‐precision manufacturing process in time for the planned start of production.
State‐of‐the‐art test procedures ensure maximum reliability even under the most challenging conditions:
By developing products and creating reliable simulation forecasts at the same time, we are able to create a rapid solution that is cost‐effective for you.
At our in‐house Technology Test Center (T^2C) we carry out testing, certification, and final inspections for each new product. By using your specifications as the basis for these processes, we ensure that every connection lives up to your (and our) high standards.
Once the product has passed all the tests, it is sent to the customer and is ready for use „out of the box“.
