Forum Maschinenbau 2020 as guest at STIWA — Attnang-based automation specialist presents product innovation HAPTICORE to more than 140 entrepreneurs

January 23, 2020

As a provider of high-tech automa­tion solu­tions, the STIWA Group opens its doors for Aus­tri­a’s com­pa­nies: Under the title “The Future of Automa­tion”, STIWA shows how rapid­ly tech­nolo­gies will change over the next ten years and the spir­it of inno­va­tion will ensure suc­cess­ful inno­va­tions. For the first time STIWA presents its new joint ven­ture Xeel­tech and its prod­uct inno­va­tion “HAPTICORE” to a home audience.

The Mecha­tron­ics Clus­ter tra­di­tion­al­ly starts the new year with “Forum Maschi­nen­bau”. The Forum is the annu­al net­work­ing meet­ing of Upper Aus­tri­a’s mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing com­pa­nies, which dis­cuss cur­rent devel­op­ments and inno­va­tion projects in mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing with col­leagues from the indus­try. It was there­fore a log­i­cal step to win the STIWA Group as the venue for this year’s forum: “Com­pre­hen­sive dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion in mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing is not a devel­op­ment that is just around the cor­ner. The inte­gra­tion of infor­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies in all pro­duc­tion process­es is part of our dai­ly pro­duc­tion rou­tine and is also cru­cial, espe­cial­ly with regard to future tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tions”, said “host” and STIWA man­ag­ing direc­tor Peter Sticht at the open­ing of the forum. In addi­tion to STIWA, oth­er com­pa­nies such as FILL, KEBA, Beck­hoff and Win­ter­steiger are also pre­sent­ing dig­i­tal automa­tion solu­tions and trends in mechan­i­cal engineering.


STIWA presents for the first time prod­uct inno­va­tion HAPTICORE 

A spe­cial high­light will fol­low in the after­noon: The man­ag­ing direc­tor of STIWA Advanced Prod­ucts, Josef Brand­mayr, presents an inno­v­a­tive con­trol ele­ment under the title “Future of Automa­ti­sa­tion”, which STIWA togeth­er with the Vorarl­berg based devel­op­ment com­pa­ny INVENTUS under the joint ven­ture “Xeel­tech” launched two weeks ago at the world’s most impor­tant and largest elec­tron­ics trade fair, the CES in Las Vegas. For the first time, HAPTICORE enables force feed­back in real-time and adap­tive­ly con­trolled by soft­ware. “The next five to ten years will see rad­i­cal changes in tech­nolo­gies, whether in mobil­i­ty, AI appli­ca­tions in pro­duc­tion or house­hold appli­ca­tions. It is cru­cial for our com­pa­nies to active­ly shape the future and invest in new tech­nolo­gies, mar­kets and prod­ucts. This requires the courage to change in order to make inno­va­tions pos­si­ble” says Brand­mayr. “With HAPTICORE we have suc­ceed­ed in exploit­ing tech­no­log­i­cal progress, devel­op­ing a gen­uine prod­uct inno­va­tion ready for series pro­duc­tion and thus open­ing up new markets”.
