Research and development for cutting-edge customer-oriented and operational innovations
Our research and development department (R&D) is one important central element of our company.
Our R&D department’s main tasks result from emerging customer requirements, experience gained over years, and the latest innovative technologies and research results.
For us, product development means to meet customer requirements, i.e. developing the best overall vision concept for a vehicle or optimally implementing specifications.
Our customer-oriented project management and teamwork allow you to rely on prompt support and the quick and dependable implementation of projects.
By providing a contact person for all phases of the project – from designing to prototype development to pre-series and series production – and with constant technical support, we ensure the success of your project.
Furthermore, integrated product support takes place in the design phase where we create technical drawings with the most current version of the 3D CAD system, CATIA. Compatible with all current 3D CAD systems it allows us to seamlessly exchange data with our customers and suppliers.
Material testing and stress tests for optimized products and guaranteed quality
The most important aspect our products must guarantee is the safety of the passengers in the vehicle. Our quality insurance sets a high value on this.
Recent developments and outlook
As the leading producer of periscopes, we have been able to continuously increase the added value of the periscopes through, for example, adding heating systems, space-saving flip mirrors or by combining them with displays and cameras.
With regard to safety glass, manufacturing innovations that reduce weight in proportion to protection are of special interest. In this area, we have taken a leading role as the producer of glass composites with our panorama periscope, which is a new generation of utmost protection and weight savings: 90% of weight saved – while retaining 100% ballistic protection.
After having established itself in the military sector for many years now, GuS is focusing more and more on requests for civilian uses. Our composite safety glasses can also be used for protective panes in industrial production facilities or in unusual architecture projects, for example as glass floors, stairs, banisters, etc.
Please approach us with your project: Our competence lies in the individual design of safety products made of glass composites.
