Product development

From the idea to the customized product

With us, you will find bundled expertise in mechanical design, electronic development, software programming and all production-related processes under one roof!

This service includes the development and design of individual components, assemblies or complete systems according to customer requirements. This can include the integration of electronics and software to offer smarter functions and services, such as control and power electronics with corresponding software.

RAPA also has its own extensive laboratory, simulation and validation facilities, which are used for intensive testing and validation in the product development process and for the creation of prototypes.

Process development and plant engineering

Precisely tailored processes for production

Indem wir Entwicklung und Fertigung ganzheitlich angehen, wissen wir um die besondere Bedeutung der Schnittstelle zwischen beiden Bereichen. Dies ist das Ergebnis langjähriger Engineering-Erfahrung. Die Prozessberatung spielt eine wichtige Rolle im Bereich Forschung & Entwicklung, wenn Qualitätssicherung, Zeitplan, interdisziplinäre Produktentwicklung sowie Kosten gleichzeitig gemanagt werden müssen.

Manufacturing, assembly and series production

An unseren hochmodernen Produktionsstandorten in Deutschland, Nordamerika und Asien verfügen wir über vielfältige Produktionslinien, die sich schnell und flexibel an die jeweiligen Anforderungen anpassen lassen.

An unserem Hauptstandort ind Selb findet die Serienfertigung  in sieben modernen Produktionshallen mit einer Gesamtfläche von beeindruckenden 13.500 Quadratmetern statt. Wir bieten: Klein-, Mittel- und Großserien (von 1.000 Stück bis Millionen Stück)


State-of-the-Art Fertigungstechnologien für höchste Effizienz und Qualität

  • Einheitlicher Maschinenpark mit modernster Technologie
  • Hochautomatisierte Fertigungslinien
  • Einsatz von Robotik
  • Baugruppenmontage an validierten Montagearbeitsplätzen
  • 100% EOL-Prüfungen (End-of-Line) für höchste Qualitätskontrolle

In-house development and production

Everything from a single source!

The production of components and systems requires careful planning and implementation in order to guarantee a product of the highest quality and reliability. Many companies outsource this process to external service providers in order to save costs and keep capacities free. But RAPA sees things differently. As a technology partner for various markets, we rely on one hundred percent in-house development and production. From design to production, the entire process is in our own hands and under our control.

The advantages for the customer are obvious: quality, speed and time to market. Close cooperation between development and production ensures that the quality of the products is maintained at the highest level. Our experienced team of engineers and technicians ensures that every step of the process is optimally coordinated and meets the highest quality standards.

Our outstanding flexibility enables us to produce customized components and respond individually to the desired quantities. With customized planning in our own production facility, we support you in your planning and offer you a clear advantage. RAPA focuses on individual quantities to meet your specific requirements. Whether a single piece or millions of pieces – we offer solutions for different requirements. We understand that the automotive industry requires completely different quantities than medium-sized industrial customers in other sectors.
