Research and Development

BATEGU offers what does not yet exist.

The company’s prototyping division provides solutions which are specially and precisely adapted for new applications. With many years of experience and modern technologies, BATEGU supports its customers realise new ideas.

Different rubber compounds are developed and tested in our in-house laboratory. In most cases, our focus is on achieving a maximum possible lifespan, optimizing product properties, and using environmentally friendly raw materials. Today, we can meet virtually any material requirements with the various types of elastomers (e.g. NR, NBR, HNBR, EPDM, FKM). Extensive mechanical, chemical, and static/dynamic tests mark the end of development projects before series production commences.

Our intensive involvement with rubber as a material makes it possible, for example, to meet fire resistance class F90 or fire class 1. We are your source for rubber composite elements (rubber-carbon fiber, rubber-GRP), just as much as for food-grade compounds with FDA approvals.

Our experts reach valuable conclusions by simulation and calculation according to the “finite element method” (FEM). We focus on simulating damping behaviour or compounds with metal and synthetic materials.

Outsourcing complete packages relives BATEGU customers in many divisions. As a result, we can handle order quantities ranging from one to several million units.

BATEGU is a development partner for companies in various industries (e.g. world market leader in the railway industry, Tier 1 supplier in the automotive, construction equipment, commercial vehicles, machinery and plant equipment sectors, etc.).
