About us


We are being considered as a reliable partner for research and development for our national and international customers since more than 15 years. We support our customers from idea generation, research and development to the introduction of series production. Our infrastructure allows for the production of prototypes and small lot sizes as well as the verification of your systems and components. By integrating the required technologies, we develop our customers’ systems and solutions of the next generation.

The demands that products and production processes must meet are constantly on the rise. Challenges include the growing flexibility of production processes, elevated process quality, increasing miniaturisation and customisation of products and systems versus shorter development times, resource-saving production, and significantly more efficient integration of development and production processes.

Mechatronics – an intelligent fusion of informatics, mechanics and electronics – is our forte. The specific knowledge that our employees possess forms the basis for collaborations in research and development and the foundations to design new, intelligent, networked or autonomous systems for the manufacturing industry.

What our partners and customers say about us …

“LCM convinces with its extensive know-how in the fields of energy harvesting, ultra low power electronics, system concept development and wireless sensor networks. We have succeeded in developing an innovative measuring task through cooperation with LCM. We were challenged by a demanding environment from the concept to functioning demonstrators for field tests at customers. The cooperation with LCM takes place in a pleasant atmosphere and enabled a transfer of knowledge between our companies. We see LCM as an innovative and reliable development partner also for the future development of the product.”

David Schaljo

Head of Application Engineering, NKE Austria GmbH

“LCM is the perfect match for Bühler. LCM impressed us right from the beginning with its immense know-how in the fields of hydraulics, control engineering and numerical simulation. Among other things, the key to us was the open and outcome oriented exchange between LCM and Bühler. The constant support of LCM amongst all project and technology phases, from the analysis via the development of solution approaches to suitability for series production, has additionally contributed to the efficient project handling. Symbolic for the excellent cooperation and the joint commitment on both sides were the corporate field missions, which sometimes lasted until late in the evening. Thanks to the cooperation with LCM, Bühler was able to quickly realize the optimization of the hydraulic system and the added value for our customers.”
Michael Cinelli

Team Leader Product Life Cycle Management R&D, Bühler AG, Schweiz

“In developing our TRUMPF MagicShoe, LCM was one of our core development partners. Deepening knowledge in radio and positioning technologies has helped to build up very quickly functional prototypes. For more than ten years now, we are addressing the LCM in all kinds of mechatronic disciplines with tricky development tasks. Innovation has always been the result of our collaboration – a perfect symbiosis of science, research and business.”
Dipl.-Ing. Bernhard Fischereder

Leitung Entwicklung, TRUMPF Maschinen Austria GmbH + Co. KG

“The entire planning and design of our micropositioning lasted just six months with LCM. Two months later we had a fully-functioning prototype at our disposal. Even the development of a product ready for series production was completed in just two weeks. But the biggest surprise was that we so far haven’t had any nasty shocks or delays during the development phase, commissioning or live operation. The collaboration with the LCM team has been TOP CLASS – keep it up!”
DI Roland Haas


“These days, mechatronics is the way to develop innovative products. With its holistic approach to problems and tasks, its experience and its areas of expertise, LCM is our ideal development partner.”
DI Hermann Hauser
