KONE

Etteplan has been one of KONE’s key engineering partners for more than 15 years, supplying engineering services and technical documentation solutions for KONE’s projects worldwide. KONE is known for its innovative and technically advanced product development. Competence is naturally our most important resource. Our market position requires an insightful eye to the future and an understanding of how to develop the right kind of competence.

Etteplan’s competence management system caters to the needs of KONE’s product development organization in a flexible manner. We regularly review our competence needs and jointly set development targets. We use indicators to monitor the development of a specific competency level or the number of people with the competency in question.

Etteplan’s advanced way of serving KONE has led to successful long-term cooperation. Etteplan was involved in the development of a new innovation that KONE launched in January 2014. Thanks to the KONE NanoSpace™ solution, replacing an elevator in a residential building is now easier and faster than before.

Wärtsilä was willing to redesign their valve springs press tools by having a lighter structure made by additive manufacturing. The initial “standard design” was machined and welded, but there were fears that it would not withstand the spring forces of over 30 kN generated during use. Wärtsilä involved Etteplan to co-design and rethink the manually operated pressing tool for mounting cylinder head valves.
