We are the experts for the development of high integrity mechatronic systems. We cover the complete product life cycle: requirements capture, development and manufacturing of prototypes, qualification series manufacturing and service. The Advanced Mechatronics team consists of highly qualified engineers, who have specialized in the fields of systems engineering, functional safety, software, mechanics and electronics.
Lean processes and an agile development approach ensures fast track project execution for demonstrators, prototypes and qualification units.
We cover the different stage gates in the product development: from feasibility studies to demonstrators and qualification units up to series production. This includes the development and manufacturing of fully automated testbenches for components and systems.
The core competence is the systems engineering combined with expertise from the disciplines of mechanics, electronics and software. The methods of reliability engineering are applied during the entire product development.

Modifications, upgrades and repair of the systems
We provide subsea electric actuators and fail-safe actuation systems for the operation of subsea valves on subsea installations including X-mas trees to 3000 m below the sea level. For Fail Safe on request multiple valves must be closed with a SIL 2 integrity. For this purpose, a highly reliable drive system consisting of batteries and actuators is being developed with full TUEV certification.
Subsea electric acutators are also used for subsea hydraulic power units (HPU) where the motor drive the pump and generates hydraulic power.
Other applications include: Workover Tools, ROV (Manipulators, Thruster), ...
We develop and operate test benches for the qualification and lifetime testing of rotary and linear actuators. The actuators can be tested in temperature conditioned salt water.
We carry out qualitative and quantitative reliability analyses (FMEA / fault tree) of mechatronic systems and develop proposals for optimization. For this purpose, we determine reliability parameters of the components from reliability catalogues (MIL 217 F, OREDA, etc.) or perform our own investigations to determine the parameters.
We develop active exoskeletons for the support of elderly people. Mechatronic drive technology supports the musculoskeletal system and thus enables a high quality of life in familiar surroundings.
Who we are?
We are a spin-off from the Centre for Reliable Mechatronic Systems (ZMS) at Aalen University. The ZMS researches innovative mechatronic systems in the fields of marine, subsea and medical technology. The spin-off offers the opportunity to industrialize scientific research results together with our partners.
We are a team of engineers with a wide experience in the fields of mechatronics, systems engineering and mechanical engineering who have deep knowledge and understanding of demanding research and development projects.
Close cooperation with the university is ensured within the framework of research and innovation networks.
