Always Doors and Samples
Before Han Yale starts every new product development, an OE sample and door are always required during the R&D process. With its experience and technology, Han Yale improves the design and increase the overall durability of the product. Using the OE samples and doors guarantees the 100% fitment rate of all Han Yale's products and perform like how they are supposed to be.
With Han Yale's extensive component database, it can react quickly and build up a product that fits its customer’s needs in a short term period. No matter if you are looking for an AM product or OE product, you can always find what you need in Han Yale.
During the development, Han Yale uses simulation software to speed up the process and increase the overall quality of components and products.
