Development

Innovation and engineering is made in accordance with our quality system ISO9001, which includes both elements of QS9000 and 6σ activities.

An end-to-end range of product development activities are offered, adding value to our your future products:

Example of 3d-printed protoypes

  • Design
  • Analysis and innovation
  • Prototyping
  • Project Management
  • Engineering Material Science
  • Manufacturing Technology Science

The elements of Product Design and Development are:

  • Design (free hand and 3D-modelling)
  • Construction (3D and 2D)
  • Prototyping (FDM-technology, MCP-casting technology)
  • Engineering material science ( requirement focused engineering and material analysis)
  • Manufacturing Technology (engineering products that are cost effective in production)
  • Patents and protective rights (All developements are safely protected as patents, trademarks or registrated designs)


Our project team members are selected to achieve a balanced experience and knowledge within these fields. Our operations are closely, but not only, related to the manufacture and material science of plastics, elastomers, rubber and composites.

The product development operations and processes are governed by our quality system. Elements of QS9001, i.e. Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA), are used at Bergen Plastics' engineering department.

Shape explorations

Shape explorations

Software used by our team:

  • CATIA V5
  • Solid Works
  • Autodesk Inventor and CAD
  • Microstation
  • C-Mold
  • Microsoft Project
  • Microsoft Visio

All designs are modeled in 3D. This is by far the most accurate and reliable method of defining, constructing and communicating the geometry.

Bergen Plastics offer turn-key solutions, which ensure cost effective product solutions and short time to market. On-time engineering with control of all development activities is one of our competitive advantages.

Lab testing

By applying the latest techniques, Bergen Plastics conduct polymer analysis and lab services. 

Complete range of analyses for polymers, plastics and composites. We can provide analytical services from basic characterization of materials to investigations of complex problems. 

Our polymer analysis and materials science capabilities range from obtaining basic information to more detailed and structurally specific results. Depending on our clients' needs, we can offer a strategic combination of physical testing to answer specific questions. Physical properties analysis include:

  • Tensile analysis
  • Compression deformation analysis
  • Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA)
  • Analysis of raw materials
  • Strength simulation

Prototype

Bergen Plastics Group have an in-house prototype lab for fabrication of 3d models. We have many years of experience making prototypes for our customers, in all fields of industries.

Rapid prototypes are mainly made in FDM or SLS. Small quantities of parts can also be made in silicon moulds in different plastic materials.

We have great experience with aluminum and soft steel moulds. If you need to quickly release a new product, or testing without big investments in moulds, prototyping is a cost-effective solution. 

The use of prototypes makes valuable evaluation possible at an early stage. We can eliminate potential errors in the design, improve details and fit mating parts - reducing costs, risk and project lead time.
