For production to run error-free and meet top quality requirements, high-precision robotic systems are essential. The various system components must interact perfectly. Unfortunately, in practice this is often not the case. Are your robots not yet functioning down to the finest detail? If so, we will be happy to assist you by measuring their accuracy or optimizing their performance. Thanks to high-quality measurement equipment and robotics expertise, we can pinpoint all sources of error and calibrate your robot components to a high accuracy. This enhances process quality and reliability.
We are also experienced partners when it comes to the functional safety of your robot systems. Legal safety guidelines must be fulfilled while, at the same time, you need an application that meets your performance criteria, such as cycle time. Modern safety concepts allow man and machine to use the same workspace. Partial automation is often the key to success, particularly in cases where it is impossible to perfectly implement a purely manual or fully automated solution.
We are also happy to conduct market studies of any size for you on all technologies related to robotics and automation, and support you with benchmark activities. In addition, we can advise you on strategies for introducing emerging technologies into your company.
You need precise manipulation but currently have reliability problems or are unsure if your robot is calibrated accurately enough. Your processes are not being executed precisely or reliably enough and you do not know why. You want to improve absolute or repeat accuracy. We have already optimized many robots and systems. Take advantage of our knowledge and experience to help you solve your problem.
You have questions concerning the functional safety of robot systems, be it about implementing a new application in compliance with standards, or about changes to an existing system. You would like to know more about the latest safety requirements, the state of the art, current research and the topics that are being discussed in national and international committees. So far, you have been unable to find a suitable testing facility for assessing the safety functions of your stationary or mobile robots. In short: You need to solve a safety challenge reliably and efficiently - with our experience, we are just the partner you are looking for.

Your application does not yet achieve the necessary availability or cycle times. You want to bring your hardware or software up to date. As an applied research institution, we always know about the latest technologies and integrate these into your application.
You want to identify the best technology providers in a particular field when it comes to specific performance criteria. It is important for you to know the advantages and disadvantages of certain competitor products and to obtain an unbiased assessment of them. As an independent research institution, we are your ideal partner.
You are looking for comprehensive general or detailed knowledge about the robotics market or associated sub-markets. You would like to develop a new, promising product and know the prerequisites already today. Perhaps you would like or need to find out exactly where you stand in your industry. Join us in looking at the bigger picture and benefit from our general and detailed knowledge.
You have a long-term aim concerning robotics and automation and would like to achieve it with the help of an independent research partner. You need to set the right course for introducing future technologies today so that you can be at the forefront in a few years' time. Or would you even like to co-develop completely new technologies but need external resources to do this?
You would like to modify your robot systems with regard to freedom of movement, motion dynamics, working space or accessibility for your application. To ensure the functionality of your systems, their kinematic configuration must be optimized. We have already implemented a wide variety of robot systems in challenging applications - and can also identify exactly what you need.
