Our Automation Technology division develops new technologies and systems that combine innovative robotics, control and security concepts with machine vision methods. The aim of this work is to use the integration and combination of these key automation components to allow our customers to benefit from more efficient processes. New force control procedures, for instance, enable industrial robots to carry out machining processes – a more versatile and cost-effective solution than conventional machine structures. We are also using innovative methods and automation concepts from the world of production engineering to pave the way for new applications and business divisions in the fields of security technology and medicine. Well-known examples include our process for automated virtual document reconstruction and our robot systems for stroke rehabilitation.
