    Dorothee Bär visited tech-solute i Bruchsal

    Accompanied by Olaf Gutting, Minister of State Dorothee Bär had tech-solute show her how digitalization affects product development nowadays during her visit to Hubwerk01 in Bruchsal.
    Managing Director of tech-solute, Dr. Dirk Schweinberger, and Head of Development, Oliver Seidel, provided insight into developments from digitization projects that are state-funded.
    For example, tech-solute is involved in a CoPot project: The aim of the project is to develop an "intelligent" cordless screwdriver that prevents the amateur from making application errors and supports the professional in his work.

    Digitalization has become an integral part of daily engineering work in pre-development, as it now plays an important role in almost all developments. This means more intensive collaboration between development departments with the aim of "bringing intelligence to products".

  • tech-solute wins GIZ tender for project in Rwanda
    tech-solute wins GIZ tender

    The German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), together with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Global Business Network Programme (GBN) in Rwanda, recently announced a project for the special training of engineers in Rwanda "on the job". The location Rwanda should also become more attractive for German investors. tech-solute already has experience with projects in Africa and is happy about winning the tender. This is especially exciting because in Corona times almost all teaching content has to be created and taught online.

    Our team of experts is confident that we will successfully overcome all language and technical barriers. tech-solute engineers flew to Rwanda this week to explore the local conditions.

  • tech-solute helped to develop KALEA
    Insight into our projects:

    In only 48 hours KALEA turns organic waste to fresh, nutrient-rich compost. The automatic kitchen composter is an innovative device with a patented technology and revolutionizes the handling
    of food waste inside homes. Odourless, super hygienic, quiet and comfortable. No more fruit flies, stinky organic waste or regular trips to take the bin out.

    Our engineers developed and built the A-sample together with the KALEA team. The A-sample is a prototype and represents the overall functions of the device - it is not yet visually designed, but all functions are implemented and "it works".

  • Abschlussarbeit KI
    tech-solute offers thesis in the area of AI

    For students of electrical engineering or IT we offer a final thesis in the field of artificial intelligence with the topic "development of an AI software for the discrimination of impurities and bulk material". Software is used to detect and report impurities in bulk material. Here the focus is on a high degree of security against false positive messages. The task is to evaluate previously recorded video material and train an "AI" with this classified material. This AI is then tested to evaluate its function and robustness. Furthermore, an  integration with certain software interfaces is planned.

    Congratulations Andreas Wilhelm!

    Thank you for 10 years at tech-solute. Together with Raphael Berger, Andreas started up the FMEA department in 2008. Meanwhile the FMEA is very successful and regularly working to capacity and always on the lookout for new staff. “For many employees in companies, FMEA is an inconvenient duty” Andreas repeatedly notices. “That is why we are engaged. For an “interested, curious” engineer this is a dream job that never gets boring!”

    This year Andreas has been engaged as a speaker at the PLATO User Conference for the 3rd time. Together with a top customer he presented best-practice examples – a novelty for tech-solute that proves the satisfaction of our customers with the tech-solute methods.

    We thank Andreas for his commitment and his enthusiasm for each new project and look forward to many more years of working together.

    In 2018, our FMEA team spent a large part of their time in foreign countries. The request for our services in and outside Germany have increased immensely. Among other countries, we carried through FMEA  moderation and fmea implementation in Poland, the Czech Republic, Rumania, Portugal and China. tech-solute offers a main moderator and a replacement moderator to ensure that the project is not delayed, should one moderator fall out. Some companies book regular days over a long period of time, where the fmea moderator actually works on site until the project is completed. This has proved a very successful approach.
