Professional mastery & CAD expertise
Forty-five years of cooperation with manufacturers, charterers and retailers have enabled us to acquire a high level of technical sophistication and precision. Our meticulous standards are reflected in the way each product is designed and developed. The use of computer-assisted design and virtual reality helps us to enhance our design methods, to innovate, and to bring even greater precision to our modelling and design choices. Project development means taking account of the onboard environment, circulation ergonomics and functional needs based on the intended use and purpose of the boat. We design products from pre-established design rules to apply the NV signature.
Assembling flexible materials requires real dexterity. The various parts of the canvas are cut out by automated machines using digital files. They are then collected and stored before being assembled by stitching. This assembly is carried out by an operator. The final phase in the manufacturing process is performed by finishing operators, who fit the connecting pieces, visually inspect all the products, clean them to remove dust, and carefully fold them before packaging.
Conformity and strict requirements
The arch workshop has grown dramatically over the past 5 years due to the increasing size of metal structures on boats. We are modernising this workshop by investing in new premises better adapted to the future requirements of these professions. Like for canvas, after semi-automated cutting of the tubes, followed by rolling/bending and dimensional checks for bending compliance, the next key step is assembly, including various operations such as drilling and pop riveting, welding, polishing, and surface treatment. Each product leaving the canvas or arch workshop is assigned to a boat, visually inspected, tagged for traceability monitoring, and carefully cleaned before packaging.
