From the idea to the computer technologies.

To support its designers, OZ adopts modern computerised analysis and design systems that improve production standards and drastically reduce time-to-market.

Classic CAD and CAM programmes are integrated by CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) stations, that can simulate the physical response of the wheel simply on the basis of its geometric model.

A dedicated FEM (Finite Element Method) based software then makes it possible to optimise the geometric shape and the choice of material, to identify the product's critical factors by a virtual simulation of a physical or mechanical problem.

Predictive engineering is supported by RP (Rapid Prototyping) technology, that makes it possible to create, in a very short time, physical prototypes directly from the CAD virtual model.
