Automation Technology

Engineering for Plants Worldwide

From technical design and realisation to commissioning and support of plants – automation technology provides interdisciplinary support for numerous projects. Due to safety concepts as well as the interaction between human beings and machine, robots and IT this discipline is of great importance.
A close cooperation with research institutes, universities and industrial partners guarantees that our know-how in many fields is always up to date.

The complexity of electronical, especially programmable systems means an increase in error rate. Within the Functional Safety we develop safety concepts for plants and machines and implement them.
