XEELTECH: New joint venture between STIWA and INVENTUS launches revolutionary product at CES in Las Vegas!

January 13, 2020

Ready to take off: STIWA and INVENTUS kick off the year 2020 with a new rev­o­lu­tion­ary prod­uct. At CES, one of the world’s most impor­tant and largest elec­tron­ics trade fairs, a ground-break­ing con­trol ele­ment – made in Aus­tria – was pre­sent­ed to the pub­lic for the first time. Force feed­back in real time and adap­tive­ly con­trolled by soft­ware is now possible.

Be it con­trols for info­tain­ment sys­tems, gam­ing joy­sticks, com­put­er mice or uni­ver­sal oper­a­tions for the house­hold: these are just a few exam­ples of appli­ca­tions for a future mass mar­ket that the new “HAPTICORE” con­trol ele­ment will address in the future. It was devel­oped by two Aus­tri­an com­pa­nies: the inno­va­tion pow­er­house INVENTUS and the automa­tion spe­cial­ist STIWA, who found­ed the new joint ven­ture XEELTECH at the end of 2019. The new tech­nol­o­gy enables the user to vary the num­ber of ticks when turn­ing the knob as well as the tan­gi­ble fric­tion in real time. Even a hard end stop is pos­si­ble, for exam­ple when scrolling through a doc­u­ment to the end of the page. Com­plex human-machine inter­ac­tions can be dis­played intu­itive­ly and sim­ply. Even blind oper­a­tion is possible.


HAPTICORE: Prod­uct inno­va­tion for a world market

HAPTICORE is very inten­tion­al­ly being launched for the first time at one of the world’s most pop­u­lar con­sumer elec­tron­ics trade fairs, the CES. “The CES is the opti­mal stage for our inten­tion. At present, there is no direct com­peti­tor prod­uct with con­ven­tion­al touch screens or mechan­i­cal rotary knobs that allows intu­itive, even blind, oper­a­tion. The demand for our prod­uct is cor­re­spond­ing­ly high in a wide range of indus­tries. More­over, every com­pa­ny wants to stand out from the mar­ket with prod­uct inno­va­tions. With our tech­nol­o­gy, they have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to do so,” report the two XEELTECH CEOs Josef Brand­mayr and Ste­fan Battlogg.


Many years of devel­op­ment – full series pro­duc­tion in 2020!

The year 2019 was used by INVENTUS and STIWA to fur­ther devel­op the new hap­tic ele­ment. Today, with XEELTECH, they are on the verge of series pro­duc­tion. “In recent months we have had inten­sive con­tact with poten­tial new cus­tomers from a wide range of indus­tries. This year we will start with a first launch cus­tomer in an inno­v­a­tive indus­try. The aim is to use this rev­o­lu­tion­ary hap­tic feel­ing in all areas of life – from cars and indus­try to the gam­ing sec­tor – across the board and regard­less of indus­try,” say Brand­mayr and Battlogg.
