Get to the finish line faster: simulations and calculations

Developing new products takes time, but it doesn't have to

Unique in the industry: Based on tmax simulations, you can avoid the usual loops in the development process so that, if possible, only one prototype needs to be built for testing.

The use of numerous simulations and analyses in the engineering and development process and on the test bench also offers the following advantages:

  • Time and cost savings, as no development loops are necessary.
  • Identification of a need for optimization, such as hotspots on the cladding, as early as the design phase, with the possibility of implementing appropriate adjustments before the realization of a prototype.
  • Verification of fatigue resistance under mechanical load.
  • Ensuring the reach of required standards and regulations.

Think tank tbrain 2.0

We offer more than just insulation
We offer innovation

To provide this to our customers, we have created tbrain 2.0, a unique internal process for innovation, where our products are constantly optimized and enhanced with new solutions.

In the think tank, the Sales, Engineering, and Operations departments work closely with the management as well as external experts and institutions, so that the trends and challenges in new fields of application – such as decarbonization technologies in power generation – are identified at an early stage.

This enables us to meet our customers’ future needs with efficient solutions. Our repeated “TOP 100” nomination as one of the most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany, as well as our numerous invention disclosures, confirm our claim to further expand our market and technology leadership in the field of high-temperature insulation.

R&D: Solutions for tomorrow's challenges

Research and development at tmax

Meeting stringent emissions standards, reducing fuel consumption, improving efficiency, reducing component weight, and more. Engine and vehicle manufacturers have to meet numerous and ever-changing requirements.

Our goal is to actively support you in meeting these challenges by delivering custom-fit and innovative insulation concepts. Research and development plays a key role in this.

In this area, we focus on:

  • Materials engineering
  • Process and production engineering
  • Design methodology: thermal, acoustic, mechanical
  • Product life cycle: durability, weight, recycling, etc.

Only continuously improved materials, sophisticated and mature process and manufacturing techniques, and well-thought-out design methodologies ensure the provision of economical and forward-looking products.

In-house test and inspection laboratory

Get your wanted results faster

Flawless materials and components form the basis for competitive, innovative and reliable products. To be able to offer our customers only the best end products, all the materials we use are subjected to various tests in our in-house inspection and testing laboratories.

Thermal, mechanical and acoustic behavior of the components are simulated, tested and calculated in detail. The results obtained in this way accelerate the development and manufacture of a functional, high-quality end product. With tmax, you save valuable time and money, and also increase the efficiency of the entire design and manufacturing process.
