(Product) development through cooperation

(Product) development through cooperation - From the beginning we think together with you about the specifications, producability, and wanted cost price for your product. We make sure that the product meets the necessary standards and legislation. Together with you we make the right choices taking product and market developments in consideration. In this way, you will get a product that is on time for a successful market launch.

You want to revise an existing device or develop a new one? We support you when you have difficulties with hardware development and the elaboration of new know-how, as well as the development of complete solutions. Profit from our expertise in the areas of electronics development including micro controller, embedded hardware- and software development, embedded Linux systems and cross-linking over CANopen, Modbus and the internet. 

Partnership for life

(Product) development through cooperation means intense and close cooperation with trust as a basis. This requires an investment that we gladly do. We strive for a long term and successful cooperation.  That is why a lot of our customers are customer for years.

Project based approach

In our offices in Cologne (Germany) we work through a project based approach. We select for your project the right project team and have access to all necessary tooling and equipment. Whether agile development or waterfall model, in close cooperation with you we define the way of working for your project. If required we can also develop according to your own development process and quality manual.

High-tech is our DNA

Up-to-date technology and quality are what our employees go for. It's in our DNA. That is why we daily invest in building up knowledge in new technologies. We excel in the some areas of digital electronics, embedded software, test systems and cloud-based solutions. On top of that we also know very well how to get it produced e.g in conveyor technology or railway technology. On request we work together with several technology partners which supply us with the latest technologies and tools. We have several partners that can help us to speed up a develop or a complete solution for you.

Knowledge of your market

Technology is just one part of the solution. Already during the conception phase it's important to know how the technology is used in your market. We need to know how the product is used and which standards have to be met.  We have a broad experience in several areas such as machine engineering, HMI display systems, conveyor technology, railway technology and communication systems.

Transparency and trust

We find good communication very important for a successful project. That's why every project is managed by one of our project managers. He is your primary contact person. Direct communication between you and our engineers is essential. Therefore we meet with customers at their offices or our office on a regular basis. For short-term meetings, various video conferencing systems are also available. The project manager guarantees that every project is successfully completed: with the right quality, on time and within the budget. That is the base for your trust in us.
