Engineering production systems
Our core competency is the design of highly efficient systems for machinery and automotive production. We support our customers from the initial idea to SOP. Whether manual production processes or highly complex automated battery production systems, we can embrace every challenge. With a global presence of over 280 experienced engineers, we complete over 500,000 working hours every year. Our processes are completely digitized, and we work exclusively with state-of-the-art systems that ensure that everything functions perfectly at production start.
As a specialist for factory planning and SE projects, we are the key to your success. We realize production processes to ensure that everything interacts perfectly in all production areas. In body-in-white production, final assembly, battery technology and, also, frame and axle production, we work in our projects in close coordination with our customers, successfully completing design, robot simulation and process planning together. Direct, interdisciplinary, efficient and, most importantly: uncomplicated.
Our many years of experience as an engineering service provider means that we have broad and extensive knowledge of every aspect of the automotive industry. We adhere intensely to our continuous improvement process, enabling us to provide our customers at all times with know-how anchored in best practice. Our broad customer portfolio allows us to take on any type of project, guiding it to its goal through expertise and services of the highest quality. We’re only satisfied when you’re satisfied!
All beginnings are difficult! The key to success is communication. We link every stakeholder to form a powerful project team, solving the problems encountered in technical and organizational coordination. We plan the process technology to suit the specification and guide the solution to a successful end. In particular, we create a balance between feasibility, efficiency, quality and investment costs. We are never satisfied with the status quo, but rather lead change processes and shape the future together with our customers.
Design and simulation
We deliver precisely designed and individually tailored solutions in fixture technology – combined with intelligent and flexible robotics. Through this, we ensure that everything runs smoothly and effectively in your production process. Together, our design and simulation teams develop the solution to your requirement, employing the latest software to achieve this goal. This diffuses problems involving critical cycle times and qualitative problems.
