Dear Sir or Madame,

as we start the new year facing ever-ongoing lockdown restrictions, we want to continue to look ahead and drive a digital future. The pandemic has brought digitization to the fore, in which new ways to collaborate and communicate digitally have become increasingly accepted and adopted. Augmented Reality (AR) has played an important role here as it has enabled strong collaboration even despite the social distancing rules. As your partner for digital transformation, we offer helpful and market-leading AR solutions together with our partner PTC. Would you like to experience AR on a closer level? Then take the chance and join our virtual Holodeck Tour with our partner PTC. With the help of vivid and versatile demonstrators, you will be able to experience the advantages and possibilities AR can offer you in an exclusive event! If you are interested, you can learn more about the event in this newsletter!

Our Research Projects


RETHINK is our latest research project and just last week, we received the funding approval for it. Together with our project partners ITQ, Lorenz GmbH and the Institute of Mechanical Engineering and Management Sciences (iwb) of the Technical University of Munich, we want to advance the topic of remanufacturing for the industrial circular economy in SMEs. In addition to this, the focus will also be on resource conservation and sustainability. The aim is to develop a standardized process model for evaluating existing systems for remanufacturing in SMEs.
