Developing Products At DITABIS
innovative | customer-focused


All DITABIS development departments are located at our main site in Pforzheim. Short distances and effective work are thus guaranteed. A second team in Reutlingen (South of Stuttgart), specialized purely in electronics hardware and software, supports the colleagues in Pforzheim. Thanks to the high qualification of our engineers and the agile working environment, we are in the position to finish even extensive projects in manageable teams quickly and efficiently.

The customer-oriented implementation of new projects is the goal of our developers.

How do we proceed?

Your Idea Is The Start

  • You intend to develop a new product?
  • You would like to update an existing product?
  • You intend to expand your product segment?

We will help you!

We develop proposals for your idea, check various implementation options and prepare the initial cost estimates in parallel. The result: A solid basis for your decision.

Concept And Implementation

As soon as the decision is made, the concept phase begins:

We conduct feasibility, design studies and develop the product architecture.

After the preliminary work, analyses and project plans have been finalized, we start with the detailed development and final specification.



Prototype And Pilot Series

Soon you will be holding the first prototype in your hands, which is the basis for preparing the pilot series production.

Our internal rapid prototyping department allows us to produce initial samples throughout the design process.

The prototypes are used for presentation to key decision makers.

The pre-production models are usually fully functional and are used for verification and validation.


Long-term Partnership

Our intentions are a long-term, trusting and successful relationship with our customers. This results in a close, long-term relationship with regular projects. This is reflected in the success of the products. Devices developed by DITABIS have been produced thousands of times.
