Logistics Automation

Let us develop your product! From the moment your idea is born all the way to production!

As a development service provider, we develop complete system solutions and products including the electronic components, firmware and the appropriate housing. We have long term experience in the creation, design, development and verification of functionally safe sensors, control technology, actuators and components of collaborative robot systems for the automation of intralogistics within company premises.

Our experienced development team solves the interdisciplinary challenges of functionally safe and secured product development in intralogistics for airports, building management and security, trade centres, ports, production facilities as well as storage and conveyor systems.

The systems and products developed by embeX offer our customers solutions for a wide range of applications in storage and buffer technology, horizontal and vertical conveyor technology, stacker cranes, lifting equipment and identification, processing, picking, packaging and palletising technology. The use of the products ranges from stationary applications to use in mobile mechatronic systems such as Automatically Guided Vehicles and Carts (AGV and AGC), Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV).

Engineering Services

We take over the system design and -development, the product development or the implementation of sub-projects. This includes the complete life cycle from conception and specification, development of hardware, software and mechanics to verification and life cycle management after successful transfer to production. We design and develop your systems and components independently or in close cooperation with your development team.

Series production and the product life cycle

  • Once the development has been completed, we expertly adjust your production - or that of an EMS - and support your product throughout its entire life cycle.
  • We take the pressure off your team by providing competent support for your successful brand-name products.
  • In the event of component discontinuations, we will help you updating your products.
