We are a consortium of three family-owned companies.
Together we master the entire value chain from the production of raw material up to the manufacturing of ready-to-install systems and components. Through diverse processes. In large-scale. In automotive quality.
With joint forces we established FASTTRACK in 2017 to live up to our ambitious standards of continuous innovation. We don’t perceive new technology as a threat, but rather want to get involved first hand. Open innovation in a very practical process. Digitalization to us is not an end in itself, but rather a means to an end. We want to offer you access to what makes us successful.
Let’s work together, let’s grow together.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR:
INDUSTRIAL B2B HIGH-TECH STARTUPS
REQUIREMENTS & BENEFITS
Seed, start-up or growth stage – it’s not our main criteria.
More importantly we want to be sure that you are mature enough to collaborate with family-owned automotive players.
- You have proven the core functionality or your technology under laboratory conditions (prototype or demonstrable product)
- You have proven your initial mettle and now require industry insights, mentorship and empirical practice to take your product to market
For more mature startups
- You have successfully launched your product/service and want to test new technology use cases in the automotive industry
We open up our production lines for you to do surgery on the open heart:
real data, real people, real processes – all highly automated with short
cycle times, vibrations, noise, dust and heat.
A FASTTRACK project will give you no less than a reality check of your technology
Based on your offer and your need, the most suitable project department will be determined.
Amongst others, the 20+ FASTTRACK pilot projects up to this point took place in:
Quality Management/End of Line, Intralogistics, Engineering, Product Development, Training Center, Shop Floor and more
Computer vision for quality inspection and error detection
HD Vision Systems is up to date the only FASTTRACK Alumni who has conducted three PoCs successfully in parallel — one with each partner.
The idea behind all projects was to see, whether a fully automated robot vision system would be capable of meeting the quality requirements of large-scale production with regards to cycle time, identification of error types and error detection reliability.
Design-to-cost of toothless gearbox
Make the Archimedes Drive producible (at large) scale and cost effective.
IMSystems develops and manufactures a new generation of gearboxes. Contrary to the widely used transmission of force thorugh geat teeth, IMSystems’ so called Archimedes Drive transmits force through hollow friction rollers.
