Two researchers collaborating on the optimization of a robot system

Robotics is booming and viewed as one of the key technologies of the 21st century. Would you like to benefit from its advantages? Are you currently thinking about implementing your first robot application? Or are you already experienced in using robots and want to improve, modify or extend them? And if you are a system or component provider: Would you like to expand your portfolio and be at the forefront of technological developments?

No matter what brought you to our site - we can help. We have more than 100 experts conducting research on robotics. You benefit from a wealth of experience gained over 50 years and from more than 1000 projects, in which we have successfully realized countless robot applications, no matter how complicated they might have appeared at the outset. Step up your innovative power, be inspired by new methods, strengthen your market position and write robotics history.

As an experienced partner who does not have the sale of a specific robot in mind but rather the best automation solution for your needs, we assist you every step of the way - from planning and development through to the implementation of robot systems and automation technologies - both in the industrial sector as well as in the service robotics sector for automated support in commercial and private environments. Our services are geared to start-ups, medium-sized companies, large enterprises, robotics users, component developers and system providers. Drawing on our many years of expertise, we provide needs-based support in line with your level of knowledge, using our unique network and our optimally equipped laboratories and workshops.

We will be happy to give you advice at your company, in our testing facilities or by video conference. After an initial consultation to clarify your requirements, you receive a detailed offer and, if you give us the go-ahead, start working on your project in coordination with your team.


Use of robots

We advise robotics newcomers, robotics users as well as experts, and offer development partnerships and platforms: regardless of whether you are already using robot technologies or just thinking about it.


Robot optimization

We help you optimize your existing robot systems so that they function smoothly, reliably and efficiently. To achieve this, we have the latest analysis and simulation systems at our disposal.


Technology transfer and licensing

We offer licenses so that your company can use our technologies in the long term. Alternatively, we offer comprehensive technology transfer via partnerships and assist you with patent issues.


Cooperation in ecosystems

Ecosystems make it possible for companies to jointly develop and market innovations while saving their own resources. The basis for exploiting this competitive advantage are uniform standards and interfaces.
