Be innovative in order to reduce costs and meet new demands in the market
The search for quality
, and competitiveness
in responding to the demands of the market form the basis for innovation at MGI COUTIER. In essence, innovation is based solely around 2 objectives: to fulfil the same function at the lowest cost
or meet environmental, weight reduction and safety requirements
with controlled costs.
To do this, we concentrate our efforts on the design of the product, the choice of materials, manufacturing processes, whilst taking a very structured approach with :
- a hierarchisation of innovations
through a matrix,
- the use of problem solving methods
, such as TRIZ,
- a method for assessing the maturity of innovations
Last years have therefore witnessed the start of production of patented innovations liked for example, :RESOAX, compact designed outlet turbo resonator.
TUNEJET, nozzle with water consumption reduction.
SYSEO BIS a compact system (integrated in to the cam cover) to decant oil and increase performance (ensures oil is returned to the engine),
a connector for fuel circuits, the ease of connection (assembly/ disassembly) and the durability of the joints being the principle assets.
