After our successful debut at the SENSOR+TEST last year, the Robot Makers GmbH also takes part at the Measurement Fair in Nuremberg this year. From 09 to 12 May 2016 the possibilities of the electronic series Modular Control System are shown together with the central control- and evaluation-unit Generic Control Box and the software framework Finroc®, in a scenario of modern measurement technology. As a special innovation, our BiSS-to-EtherCAT-Gateway is presented, that connects the both powerful bus systems, BiSS-Interface and EtherCAT.
Today, April 26 2016, the Robot Makers GmbH celebrates its 5th anniversary.
The company was founded in 2011, based on the vision of the managing directors Dr. Carsten Hillenbrand and Dr. Bernd-Helge Leroch, to make robotics and automation technology in mobile space affordable by a platform-based approach. Within the last 5 years the two-man-business has now developed into a small company with 12 employees. Thereby, the Robot Makers has gained reputation as a reliable development partner and supplier – also internationally.
Therefore, we would like to take the opportunity of our 5th anniversary to say thank you to all our customers, partners, employees and, not least, the foundation promoters in our region. Through the diverse requirements of our customers and partners, they are our greatest innovation drivers that inspire us again and again to push the borders of what is possible. Our staff takes the central role in the implementation of this standard. With an experienced team, where everyone stands up for the other, numerous projects have been successfully implemented and made the Robot Makers GmbH to what it is today. Finally, we would like to say thank you to the start-up support, which stood at our side with advice and assistance since our foundation and has strongly supported the development of our company.
Thank you very much!
Carsten Hillenbrand and Bernd Helge Leroch

Here you can find first pictures of the new MCS Hydraulic Control, that will be available on the market in the near future. The MCS Hydraulic Control is suitable for hydraulic drives like cylinders or engines. It enables the possibility of a synchronous control of multi-axle hydraulic arms depending on joint angles.
