Research & Development

The team Future is responsible for the development of new machines and plants – in these we see the future of our company.

Strapping machines are mechatronic systems, which means that the entire development of the mechanics, the electrical components and the associated software including the user interface takes place completely at the location in Goldkronach.

As a broadly based team, new basic technologies and applications are designed, as well as customized solutions and new options for the modular strapping machine construction kit. We systematically bring together customer feedback, years of experience and state-of-the-art development methods to create products that deliver real value to the customer.
We also conduct joint research with external partners such as the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, partner companies and various universities in the areas of energy and resource efficiency as well as digitization, services and process optimization.
Responsibility over the entire product lifecycle remains conscious with the product manager in order to receive optimal feedback for new developments and to quickly identify and eliminate any problems that arise. Another focus is on the system integration of strapping technology with OEMs and equipment manufacturers to seamlessly integrate the packaging process into higher-level processes and increase the value added for the customer.
Every day, we try to live up to our credo “one strap ahead” and to think again and again about packaging solutions.
Our focus is on value-adding activities for customers and companies. Through process optimization and automated processes, diligence is minimized and the so important freedom for creative solution finding and innovative approaches is constantly created.
Through customer contact, multi-faceted activities and close networking in and outside the company, the employee has a varied and exciting workplace with diverse development opportunities.
