Systems Engineering

The art of integration

In the area of product development, we follow the systems engineering approach. Instead of constantly reinventing the wheel, we skillfully bring together all the necessary components. Our focus is on the interfaces, be it between electronic components, actuators, sensors or between man and machine. In this way, we ensure seamless integration and optimum functionality of the overall system.

Cobots

The future of human-machine collaboration

One component of our work is the integration of collaborative robots, known as cobots. We enable safe and efficient collaboration between humans and machines through intelligent task distribution. This innovative form of collaboration opens up a wide range of possible applications and potential in various industries.

Automated guided vehicle systems (AGVs):

Efficient logistics solutions

Our expertise also extends to automated guided vehicles (AGVs). In close cooperation with renowned partners - whereby we take care of the merging and smooth running of the interfaces - we offer customized AGV solutions. Our focus is not only on transportation, but also on monitoring, maintenance and observation in production environments. We integrate both our own AGVs and systems from other manufacturers to ensure the optimum overall system for our customers. We work closely with reliable partners to control and localize our own AGVs.

Rapid prototyping with 3D printing and design thinking

In order to provide our customers with tangible results quickly, we rely on rapid prototyping in product development with the help of 3D printing. This enables us to produce prototypes cost-effectively and flexibly and accelerate the development process. We also incorporate the principles of design thinking to generate innovative ideas and develop products that are not only technically sophisticated, but also user-friendly and intuitive to use.

Our focus is particularly on the optimal user experience (UX) and the satisfaction of the system operator. The focus on the UX and the satisfaction of the system operator is particularly important to us. We understand that operation and interaction with our products are crucial for the smooth running of system processes. That is why we take both the technical aspects and user-friendliness into account during development in order to create an optimal working environment.

Working with ROS

(Robot Operating System)

The Robot Operating System (ROS) plays an important role in our system-oriented approach. As an open-source framework, ROS provides a flexible and scalable platform for the development and control of our systems. It enables us to seamlessly integrate different components and facilitate communication between them. Thanks to ROS, we can ensure that our systems consist of interchangeable components that offer a high degree of flexibility and adaptability.

Partnerships and research collaborations:

Implementing innovative solutions together

If you would like to implement a project in the field of cobots or AGVs with a batch size of 1, we are the perfect partner for you. Thanks to our extensive experience in the development of prototypes for driverless transport systems and dosing systems using cobots, we are ideally equipped to successfully implement your individual solution. We have already proven that we can turn innovative ideas into reality and look forward to turning your vision into reality.

Our expertise is not only based on commercial projects, but also on successful collaborations with research and educational institutions. We have successfully carried out funded projects and supervised theses in order to promote young talent and put the latest findings into practice. One of our long-standing collaborations, for example, is with Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, where we work together on exciting research projects, among other things.

This collaboration allows us to stay at the cutting edge of technology and benefit from innovative approaches. We are proud to use our experience, knowledge and partnerships to offer you the best solutions for your individual project.
