Products from Techno-Step are deployed worldwide, especially in paint shops of major German carmakers. The hardware and software of the company based in Böblingen (near Stuttgart) now also make it possible for inventory and third-party plant equipment to be intelligently networked with Dürr’s DXQ software products. This enables older generations of robots to exchange data, allowing the relevant processes to be analyzed. A further benefit to customers is that Techno-Step solutions are supplemented e.g. by process simulations as well as by automatically generated reports and forecasts (machine learning) of Dürr.
“By cooperating closely with the Techno-Step experts, we’re following up our plans to become the leading provider of digital solutions in entire automobile factories”, says Dr. Jochen Weyrauch, Deputy CEO of Dürr AG, responsible for the paint shop and final assembly business.
The company Techno-Step GmbH was founded in 2003 by Markus Schultheiß, who remains Managing Director. In fiscal 2018/19, the company generated € 3.5 million in sales.
