SMART FACTORY

Implementation of digitization projects, from application-specific sensor solutions over selection and implementation of the appropriate communication technology to the generation of the actual added value using modern data analysis and process knowledge – we support our customers with the development of individual sensor and communication systems combined with state-of-the-art signal processing and AI know-how!

AI & Analytics

AI & Data Analytics

Since the beginning of the digitalization of the industry, the amount of data available on states and processes has increased sharply. Targeted analysis methods make it possible to identify connections between superficially independent data streams and to draw meaningful conclusions regarding plant and process states and to intervene at an early stage.

We support our customers with our many years of know-how in the following areas

  • AI & Data Analytics
  • Signal Processing
  • Sensor Fusion & Datafusion

by reducing production errors or plant downtime with the development of efficient algorithms for preventive maintenance.

Industrial IoT

Industrial IoT is the integration and connection of intelligent, mostly wireless sensors and actuators into industrial plants and processes in order to optimize them and equip them with new functionality. We support our customers with our many years of know-how in the areas of

  • energy harvesting
  • wireless communication
  • edge computing
  • embedded blockchain technology

with the successful implementation of digitization projects by the development of customer-specific, energy self-sufficient and thus sustainable solutions from the simplest sensor solution to the upgrading of your entire plant with our industrial networking technology.

Localization

Modern localization systems do not only determine the position of people or objects, but also provide added value by tracking, activity pattern analysis and recognition as well as energy-independent mobile transponders. This is achieved by the meaningful interaction of products with machines and systems or tools with warehouse goods and transport systems.

We support our customers with our many years of know-how in the following areas

  • Radio location (UWB, BLE, WLAN, RFID)
  • optical positioning (VLP, odometry)
  • pattern recognition

to optimize their flow of goods, plan transport routes, improve ergonomics and efficiency and develop new application scenarios.

Electronics

State-of-the-art microelectronic components and systems are a prerequisite for intact industrial networking, because they are the core of every cyber-physical system (CPS) and the link between the real (physical) world and the virtual (cyber) image – they turn measurable quantities into sensor data. Microelectronics flexibly controls production processes and announces necessary maintenance work in industrial plants. We support our customers with our expertise in simulation, design, prototyping and embedded software development to realize their ideas and meet their requirements. We develop the best fitting hardware and software solution for our customers.

For your solution we use these software tools:

  • Altium Designer
  • Ansys HFSS, SIwave
  • Solid Works

OUR SERVICE OFFER

Knowledge-Transfer

Our technology experts share their knowledge and experience with you.

We offer you a wide range of possibilities to build up your competencies, to advise you on the best solution strategy or to give you an overview of the current state of the art – from presentations or webinars to training courses and workshops, flexible and individually plannable.

Development of electronic systems
  • Simulation (Circuit, 3D Field Simulation)
  • Design (Concept , Schematics, PCB, Firmware, EOL Tests)
  • Prototyping (Electronics, Firmware, Mechanics)
  • Lot size One (Production, Assemby, Testing)
  • embedded Software Development (State of the Art Software Development, Continous Integration, Software Testing)
Development

We develop for you from the first idea to the finished prototype.

Especially in case of resource bottlenecks in your own development team or if technological knowledge is necessary that is not available in the company, we offer you to carry out the complete R&D project from the idea to the prototype.

Co-Development

We do R&D together with your development department.

As input for new solution strategies, in case of personnel bottlenecks or if competence building in your own development team is required, we offer you the opportunity to carry out subtasks or work packages together with us

Austrian-Belgian project celebrates success in Russia LCM and Flow-Tronic measure liquid flows using radar

Linz (Austria), Welkenreadt (Belgium) November 2015 – ‘Raven-Eye’ is the name of an internationally successful Austrian-Belgian development that uses radar to measure liquid flows in breweries, creameries, water supply works, as well as in municipal and industrial...

INTERNATIONAL PATENT FOR ICE DETECTION SYSTEM

Operation of wind energy plants can be encumbered under certain conditions by the formation of ice on the rotor blades. Because this heavy ice presents a danger as it can be slung over 100 meters, the plant must be shut down upon detection of ice. Often time is lost...
