Handling Technology



Across departments and groups, the technology field “Handling Technology” bundles the competencies of the employees from the eponymous areas. This includes in-depth process knowledge regarding the specific requirements for the added value of mechatronic products and systems, in particular in the fields of electronics production, electric motor production, biomechatronics and efficient systems.


‪The technology field combines in-depth knowledge of the applicable robots and handling devices, their control and motion planning as well as the application-related necessary actuators and sensors. Through a cross-group dialogue, there is a sustainable transfer of knowledge and the possibility of developing alternative solutions.
