Research and Innovation, Speech Nikolaus Dürk at UNIDO conference

REsearch, Innovation and Security

Being one step ahead of the state of the art - innovative project approaches can only emerge through cooperation.


« In our work we combine creativity with craftsmanship. Research projects, networked thinking, cooperation across companies and institutes are our arts and crafts with which we create new solutions together with our customers. »
There is a solution for every problem and every task. However, this solution can hardly be found on its own, only the joined exchange leads to new perspectives and the first step in the right direction. 

Depending on requirements and complexity we come back to our partners in the areas of electronics, programming of FPGA, machanical engineering etc. to plan and realise suitable hardware and software solutions. If we are dealing with longer-term development goals for which state-of-the-art technologies are not sufficient, a research project is the way to go.

 


 
We develop and implement comprehensive overall solutions that fully match customized processes and functionalities. Our hardware and our software satisfy the requirements of industry 4.0 and can be smoothly integrated in production lines and processes. We also integrate all necessary interfaces and additional components.

If necessary, we cooperate with partners in the areas of electronics, programming of FPGA, mechanical engineering etc. to develop hardware components. The following projects give an overview about our references and hardware projects.

DiscMaker - CD/DVD/BD-Robot

DiscMaker

The DiscMaker contains up to 30 burning devices and up to three printing systems and is able to produce up to 4000 CDs, DVDs and Blu-Rays a day. Though we focus on the single copy: each medium is customised and can have an individual content and can be indivdually labelled.

On the one hand the production of the discs is designed directly for the mass production and on the other hand the production can be self-initiated by visitors and customers on fairs and exhibitions.
Different modules and options (e.g. collection trays for single mediums, cooling system, screen on the outside of the DiscMaker, screen for service guidance at the inside etc.) are arbitrarily combinable so that various applications can be covered. »

The robot systems manufactured in Germany are characterized by robust mechanics and high-quality processing and are ideal for 24 hours operation. Due to the use of conventional standard components (burner drives, power supply units, etc.) no specialist knowledge is required to service the robotics itself. The software-framework OpenRC manages all functions of the robot. A web GUI allows control and management of the robot independent of platform and location.»
