Value Added Chain
Success as a whole –Reliability into the smallest detail

Volke Munich will support you in all phases of development – from the presentation of the first idea to supervision of serial production. From the initial sketch to the fully-developed concept, Volke supervises and guides core topics such as a management of requirements and interfaces, production planning and approval for successful production. Highest quality places a decisiveat all stages of the process.

The use of future-oriented technologies and system applications as well as living out of modern project management form the basis for realizing complex scopes of responsibility in the highest quality . Information security is of the highest priority to us. But also comfort and cost effectiveness are also important factors which we guarantee through the professionalism and quality of our company.

Brainstorming

In collaboration with our customers we develop new ideas and concretize projects from the areas of automotive engineering, mechanical engineering, energy technology and transportation technology as well as the aerospace industry.

Concept-Development

Significant developments, which can be of great value, arise from ideas and requirements. We assess innovative proposals systematically and summarize them in words.

Project-Editing

For the success of a product, careful planning of the development process is of utmost importance. We plan project development proposals and test ideas for their feasibility and cost efficiency and support you through the entire process through to the finished product.

Testing

We test the fulfilment of technical requirements in the product and product supporting processes. Even the daily practical application and operational readiness are tested by us under special conditions.

Serial Production Start-Up

From development into practice – we prepare the project for a successful production and provide support through serial production.

Serial Production Support

We continue to support products during serial production and are able to analyse any issues that occur and develop proposed solutions for our customers.

Services

Volke Munich stands for quality, know-how and innovation. With the newest technologies and the extraordinary knowledge of our employees, we give confidence and support to our customers in the automobile industry in all processes of vehicle development.

Volke Munich has today over 650 employees, grows continuously and will develop step by step a new area of action for solving technical challenges.

Design

Giving form to creative ideas…

Every product begins with an idea. Every design begins with a sketch.

We support our customers in the implementation of their creative ideas and give form to design. Our range of services extends from the design sketch to virtual or physical intermediate steps all the way to high-quality presentation models. We support our customers through the entire design process or supply high-value single components.

The needs of our customers have in any case priority and their satisfaction is our daily motivation.

Highest quality and competency with maximum flexibility, absolute deadline compliance and perfect project management. Capabilities that our customers really appreciate. In order to achieve this we utilize modern technologies combined with high vertical range of manufacturing and first of all our comprehensive longterm experience. Our physical and mechanotechnical plant allow us to meet all the requirements from the disciplines of design and model construction.

…we set the standards in design development and help your ideas become real.

Development and Testing

Volke Munich is a specialist in vehicle development and vehicle testing. From the first concept to the complete vehicle trial, our specialists are at work and supervise that product creation process.

The individual steps in development are secured by simulation and testing. New technologies are reviewed and tested after the virtual feasibility study on sub-system test sites, test stands and prototype construction. Then the new functions are integrated into a trial vehicle and tested out. The implementation proceeds with respect to the project on the customer’s premises or in Volke’s own development facilities.

The realization of the desired vehicle properties requires specialized know-how of the entire process chain. In our facility, functionality, resilience and operational lifetime are checked and compliance with the limiting conditions assured. All steps from documentation of the results to evaluation are supervised or carried out by our employees.
