Companies that seek long-term success in the market need to be able to identify new developments quickly. Employees who work in Schmersal’s innovation garage conduct research to discover which new technological trends are likely to have a lasting impact on mechanical engineering and safety technology. Aside from day-to-day work, employees have the opportunity to try out new technologies and to consider how they can be turned into useful elements for new product development. It’s not always necessary to build up internal expertise, and sometimes it can be more expedient to enter into cooperation with external companies that possess the necessary competence, or to invest in start-ups.
In addition, the innovation garage also develops ideas for new products and tests their functional capability with the aid of prototypes.
This leads to new technological concepts and solutions for the safe and productive design of manufacturing processes, even against the backdrop of increasing automation and the use of robots and AI.
