Audrey Raymond, Key Account Manager
There is so much thought that goes into each and every one of our parts.
Innovation has always driven what we do here at ARaymond. We strive to maintain a long-term vision despite the accelerating pace of change on our markets. Our customers’ challenges drive us to constantly improve and reinvent ourselves.
Our new ideas are fueled by our technical know-how and the experience of our people. And to offer the best solution possible, there’s always a designer by my side, from the very first meeting with a customer.
Coming up with a finished product that responds completely to the customer’s needs is a group effort at every step of the way. We depend heavily on our state-of-the-art production facilities, our experience, and - above all - our people’s extraordinarily high level of engagement."
Smart people, small products, great value
ARaymond has dedicated innovation centers, which work closely with our customers worldwide and with the advanced engineering teams at all of our plants. Our innovation specialists and engineers imagine assembly solutions for tomorrow’s needs, drawing on their experience in diverse fields like connectivity and digital technology, advanced manufacturing and lightweight materials. They use their expertise in automation, mechatronics, manufacturing technologies, simulation, and new materials, with the support of specialized labs.
Recent developments include multimaterial joining interfaces for composite materials. To support our customers in their transition to Industry 4.0 and IoT (Internet of Things), our advanced development teams are also investigating how augmented reality tools can improve assembly processes.
Our R&D and innovation work also targets shorter-term challenges. One focus is bringing new technical capabilities and added functions to existing parts. For example, ARaymond is developing Quick Connectors that integrate temperature sensors to help managing engine or battery temperature. Another illustration: Our innovative parts and testing methods are setting new OEM standards for buzz, squeak, and rattle.
