The research of PROFACTOR anticipates the challenges that the domestic industry will face in the up-coming decades. The resulting developments reflect the state of the art in the technologies.

PROFACTOR concentrates on solutions for eleven topics:

Machine Vision

Visual inspection is more than just making an accept/reject decision. PROFACTOR is developing inspection systems using machine vision and machine learning. The system learns to reproduce  human decision-making from sample data. This enables the flexible use of machine vision in small lot ...

3D-Digitalization and Object Recognition

3D modeling of work spaces, objects and components, as well as the digital detection of objects are of vital importance for a flexible production. PROFACTOR over the years of development, has brought such software modules to the commercial market. These standalone modules can be used for a...

Flexible Robotic

The industry is dependent on robotic solutions that can not only cope with new variants of a task in a flexible manner, but can also fulfill a wide range of tasks. The flexible robot should tackle tasks such as handling, screwing and inspection - with minimal conversion and configuration e...

Heat flow-thermography

Conventional methods (like Magnetic Particle Inspection) for detecting near surface cracks and other defects beneath the surface of metal parts are pushed to their limits as they are error prone and very resource intensive. In addition to that, automation is often impossible. Heat flow the...

Simulation Based Decision Support & Optimization

With the simulation-based analysis, planners and operators of production systems get a practical tool that enables them to predict the effects of planned measures or decisions as well as to estimate the key performance indicators that can be expected by these decisions. The modelling proce...

Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling

PROFACTOR offers 3D printing services that meet the highest technological standards. PROFACTOR can rely on its infrastructure and know-how gained from countless research projects - especially with respect to material conformance, surface refinement and surface characterization.The focus is...

Nano/Micro-structures

Funktionelle Oberflächen sind eine Voraussetzung für innovative Produkte. PROFACTOR realisiert Strukturierungen in verschiedensten Größenbereichen. Dimensionen von einigen µm bis zu wenigen Nanometern sind ohne weiteres  mit den vorhandenen Lösungen möglich. Anwendungsbeispiele sin...

Functional/decorative Surfaces

Das Aufbringen von grafischen oder funktionellen Elementen auf gekrümmte Oberflächen schließt bei herkömmlichen Methoden – zum Beispiel mittels Transferfolien – individuelle Lösungen aus. PROFACTOR vernetzt bei seiner Lösung – dem robotikgeführten Inkjet-Druck - Expertisen aus...

Coatings

PROFACTOR hat jahrelange Erfahrung in Besichten von Oberflächen und konzenziert sich auf folgende Lösungen:Mittels Inkjet Druck können Beschichtungen berührungslos auf unterschiedlichen Materialen aufgebracht werden. Dabei werden exakte Materialmengen positionsgenau platziert. Durch de...
