Synapticon at ROBOBusiness 2017 - Global Expansion Course of Embedded Systems Company Reaches China

"The move to Silicon Valley about two years ago was very important and valuable for us to consolidate our fundamental strategy, to observe new technologies and to understand them earlier. We have been able to expand our already existing network in this most innovative region in the world,"

Schönaich/Shanghai/Santa Clara 25th Sept. 2017 - Synapticon GmbH, a developer and manufacturer of embedded technology for motion control systems, is announcing the next step in its global expansion course at ROBOBusiness in Santa Clara, CA. The experts for Robotic Control Systems, headquartered in Schönaich near Stuttgart/Germany, will be opening offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai, two years after the opening of the office in Redwood City, CA. The move to the east is of great strategic importance for the young tech company, which is presenting its technology at the ROBOBusiness at booth #317 from 27th till 28th September.

"The move to Silicon Valley about two years ago was very important and valuable for us to consolidate our fundamental strategy, to observe new technologies and to understand them earlier. We have been able to expand our already existing network in this most innovative region in the world," explains Nikolai Ensslen, founder and CEO of Synapticon. "With our robotic control systems, we have now developed technologies and products that are of great competitive value for manufacturers of robots and automation technology. By founding the Hong Kong subsidiary and opening the sales office in Shanghai, we are optimizing our ability to serve this largest market for industrial robotics."

Following a capital increase at the beginning of the current year, Synapticon has clearly positioned itself in the area of Robotic Control Systems. The refined focus is on embedded systems for drive technology, motion control and motion planning in robotics, to offer customers a complete platform for future-proof technology: Synapticon summarizes this in its new slogan "Intelligent Robotic Motion". The company primarily addresses the manufacturers of industrial robot arms and driverless transport systems for use in manufacturing companies, as well as the manufacturers of professional service robots and robotic products for consumers.

With its "Embedded Robotics Platform", Synapticon provides standard products such as system-on-chips, electronic modules as well as associated software components and development tools. Under the category "Robotic Solutions", Synapticon offers software for controlling robot arms and software for autonomous navigation as well as hardware such as robot-specific sensors and integrated drives, which can be adapted to the individual needs of the customers. By combining these products and solution components, Synapticon provides manufacturers of robotic end products (OEMs), such as stationary robot arms and mobile robots, with targeted solutions.

"Our strengths lie in the performance and ease of integration of our technology, the approach of decentralization and the focus on robotic applications. We have developed a portfolio that allows manufacturers to go seamlessly from prototype to mass production. The products of the companies that use our technology achieve the highest performance and convince through optimized production costs, simplified engineering and thus a very short time-to-market ", summarizes Nikolai Ensslen. "In order to get even better here and to be close to the hotspots of development, we are now permanently present in the USA as well as in China."

Featured Product

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
