Belgian engineering consultancy with a focus on R&D and product innovation

Engibex specializes in Research & Development, from feasibility studies right through to production. Our focus is on product innovation rather than setting up installations, machinery maintenance or the optimisation of mass production. Our highly qualified engineers (at the very least Masters, PhD or post PhD) all enjoy the benefit of a long-term, permanent Belgian contract.

On our first encounter with our clients we first undertake an in-depth analysis of their needs. We focus on listening and understanding those needs and if necessary anticipating them.

Once we have understood the needs and requirements, we scrupulously match these to the profiles of our consultants so as to make the very best match possible and to best meet the challenge.

Our approach is simple and determined: to ensure an efficient, reliable job and to propose long-term solutions. We lay emphasis on the quality of the training of our consultants. Our DNA lies in our ability to roll up our sleeves and to be a real entrepreneur!

From its very beginnings, Engibex has positioned itself on its poles of competence:

  • Mechanics
  • Mechatronics
  • Electrical systems
  • Electronics
  • Embedded systems

We offer a bespoke service, adapted to the requirements of our clients with the aim of ensuring that they benefit from high added-value recommendations!

Our engineers worked on some exciting R&D and product innovation projects:

Project about inductive chargers and how these can influence the way we use transport.

Transport

Transport

Induction chargers typically use an induction coil to create an alternating electromagnetic field from within a charging base station, and a second induction coil in the portable device takes power from the electromagnetic field and converts it back into electric current to charge the battery. The two induction coils in proximity combine to form an electrical transformer.

Essentially the device and the charging station form a two-part- transformer, with the charging having one part of the transformer and the device having the other.  When the device slides on to the station the complete transformer is created and the energy can flow.

We are working for a company which has developed the use of the high power inductive energy transfer to create wireless charging for the PRIMOVE vehicles.  One of the components is a buried underground station used as an emitting device and the receiving equipment is installed beneath the vehicle. As soon the vehicle covers the charging segment the contactless charging process stars automatically

This system has is highly efficient and fast.  Those vehicles can be charged rapidly and seamlessly either in motion (dynamic charging) or at rest (static charging) without the need for extra fleet vehicles or batteries.
This is a system cleaner without using catenaries, cables, wires or plugs, Also prevents the emissions of carbon or noxious gases.  And the contamination emitted by noise or vibrations.

Volvo is another company which also has developed its own inductive charging for one of its model lineup.
“Volvo is focusing on the C30 electric design and hopes to make it as comfortable, sporty and safe as the standard car. The electric C30 will have a range of up to 150 kilometers per charge and have a top speed of 130 km/h. Volvo’s ambitious “Drive towards Zero” program has the goal of a complete range of electric and plug-in hybrid cars by 2020.
