Automotive industry

Experts together.

The automotive industry and its markets are our strength. We analyse processes, advise and assist with highly innovative sensor technology.

The interaction between our experts and your engineers, as well as developers and production managers, runs like a common theme through every project. For more than three decades, our long-term and creative collaboration has been ensuring maximum efficiency for your production. 

But the most important aspect is this: our technical expertise is your guarantee of success. A strong sense of ownership forms the basis of what we do - from the initial conversation to full service. Have you got a product with the same properties as CAPTRON’s SENSORswitch? We doubt it. Take the opportunity to compare - the look and feel of our products will convince you, because quality is something you can feel. 


The employees at BMW's Dingolfing plant have a new, sensitive colleague. One that relieves them - especially in monotonous and physically demanding work: the lightweight robot LBR iiwa from KUKA. Where once a worker alone had to lift and attach heavy plate edges for the front axle transmission, he now works hand in hand with the robot colleague in the tightest of spaces. Without protective fences.

For this human-robot collaboration (MRK), KUKA Systems designed an extremely space-saving system with suspended mounting that could be integrated into the existing production line without having to be redesigned for it.
