Yesterday the kick-off event for the pilot project NEW SCHOOL WORK(S) took place at Hubwerk01. tech-solute is on board with an exciting student project. The aim is to encourage curiosity and practical skills of the students (11th grade) in a real project, which they independently complete with some mentoring support. In the best case, this will give them a little professional orientation and show us what is important to this generation in their daily work and how or with which project tools they prefer to work. Who would like to learn more about this: NewSchoolWorks

Karlsruhe, 18.9.2019. We made promising contacts at the "Zukunftstüftler" trade show 2019 in Karlsruhe. Interesting lectures and workshops, lots of exciting start-ups and presentations on the "Daimler Future Stage" and a diverse exhibition audience made this day at the Technologiefabrik something special. One highlight was the Science Slam: The winner's trophy was donated by tech-solute and handed over personally by Dr. Dirk Schweinberger.
While other pupils are having fun at the swimming baths, Jacob Schäfer, who will be attending the 12th grade of the Heisenberg Gymnasium in Bruchsal from September, uses the school holidays to complete an internship at tech-solute and experience the everyday work of our engineers up close. "It's pretty cool what the engineers are doing here", says Jacob, who currently intends to study computer science after graduating from high school. In a current project for a customer, he carries out tests, evaluates them, sets up the necessary software and programs in C++ - all of this, of course, under the expert guidance of our e-technology department.
Today Alex Fauck, Managing Director of Technologiefabrik Karlsruhe, visited the new premises of tech-solute here in Hubwerk01, the digital hub for the Bruchsal region.
Contacts to the economy of the region are becoming more and more important, as the hub builds up a network of SMEs, experts, start-ups etc. who all need something or have something to offer. The aim is to promote digitalisation in the region.
On 1st June VIGEM celebrated its 10th anniversary in the Kantina Majolika in Karlsruhe. tech-solute's Managing Director Dr. Dirk Schweinberger was on spot to congratulate VIGEM's Managing Director Markus Trauth and presented him with a gift basket.
tech-solute has been supporting VIGEM with development services for more than two years now. Dr. Schweinberger: "We very much appreciate our cooperation with VIGEM. VIGEM requires a very fast conversion of their requests. Flexibility and fast reaction time two of tech-solute's strengths - we can deliver certain services within one to two days.
VIGEM is a specialist for the development of customer-specific test and analysis systems, which sustainably support the qualification of modern driver assistance systems. This way VIGEM brings more safety to autonomous driving and driver assistance systems.
We sent five of our engineers to the AEN in Karlsruhe to receive new impulses and inspiration for their management activities and their daily work. On the premises of #IBS_Karlsruhe, Waldemar Epple (former E3 manager at Daimler) taught a lot of knowledge in 6 x 4 hours seminars using real-life examples.
Dirk Schweinberger: "tech-solute gives impulses to other companies again and again. It is of great value to us to improve ourselves further and regularly get new inspiration from the outside".
The ceremonial opening of the Digital Hub Hubwerk01 (and also the new rooms of tech-solute) by the Minister of Economic Affairs Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut took place on 13 May 2019. More than 400 guests from business, politics and educational institutions were present when the minister, instead of cutting a ribbon, made a logo shine. The special logo was of course created by tech-solute engineers.

Dr. Dirk Schweinberger lectured on LoRa in the Digital Hub Bruchsal on 19.2.2019
The Long Range Wireless Network opens up a huge amount of possibilities. It can be can be established and operated by anyone. Apart from modern Smart-City applications,
inumerous applications in industry are practicable. For example localizing objects, asset management, monitoring of buildings or meter readings.
The technology is suitable for companies that offer products and services at different locations. Using LoRa, you can erffortlessly record data at one location and transmit it to a different location for evaluation.
Bruchsal, 14.2.2019, tech-solute, one of the leading innovation and engineering companies in Baden-Württemberg has been nominated for the "Großer Preis des Mittelstandes" for the seventh time. The prizeis awarded by the Oskar-Patzelt-Stiftung and belongs to the most popular business awards in Germany. Only every thousandth company is nominated. tech-solute is nominated yet again. Aa big success for the Karlsruhe-based company.
Felix, a former software developer at Siemens with more than four years of experience as a scientific researcher at the Karsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) has a degree in Chemistry and is already enjoying working at tech-solute as a software and electronics developer. The perfect addition to our team. All the best, Felix!
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.
Bruchsal, 14.11.2018. 200 guests attended the foundation event of the Digital Hub Region Bruchsal e-V in the auditorium of the TRIWO Technopark Bruchsal. Dr. Dirk Schweinberger, Managing Director of tech-solute GmbH & Co. KG presented the audience with examples of projects which will be realised in the Digital Hub in the near future. tech-solute ist a founding member of the hub. Together with the other founding members (the software company Rock5 from Bruchsal, the Regional Business Development Bruchsal, the TRIWO Technopark Bruchsal GmbH and the advertising agency MONO Dimension) tech-solute provides a solid base for giving regional companies a good start into the digital era. The main Target: The creation of new business models and products of the future.
Construction work on the planned digital hub at the TRIWO Technopark in Bruchsal is in full swing. By April 1, 2019 at the latest, it should open its doors and offer companies, start-ups and universities completely new opportunities to cooperate. The goal: innovative digitization solutions and novel business models through open innovation, co-working and focused expert support. In order to turn hub users' ideas into technically viable solutions, tech-solute, as a hub "roommate", will provide users with advice and practical support and will also supervise the maker space on site.
The AEN (Automotive.Engineering.Network) is a mobility cluster with the aim of promoting mobility projects in Karlsruhe (see www.ae-network.de). This time, the AEN network meeting was all about engineering. As host, tech-solute provided an insight into its own work and reported on the latest findings in the fields of FMEA and digitisation. During the subsequent networking, the participants could establish valuable contacts.
At the digitization summit of the state government the "Digital Hub Bruchsal-Kraichgau" project was awarded the contract by the Minister of Economic Affairs, Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, as one of ten future digitisation centres in Baden-Württemberg. The planned digital hub is intended to serve companies and start-ups as an information, consulting and seed cell in the topic of digitization and aims to facilitate the exchange of experience, knowledge transfer and collaboration. The special feature of the Bruchsal concept: with tech-solute an experienced engineering service provider will be located directly in the hub so that innovative ideas can mature into marketable innovations as quickly and professionally as possible. Besides engineering expertise tech-solute will provide the hub users with a workshop including machines and laboratory equipment. The opening of the hub is planned for the beginning of 2019.
At the end of the year, the Federal Association of Medium-Sized Businesses (BVMW) invited its members to the Palatin Hotel in Wiesloch. For the first time, the so-called EntrepreneurSTARs were honoured in this context. Five companies from the BVMW network with remarkable success in the categories of innovation, succession/employees, digitization, foreign trade and corporate management were honoured. The prize in the category "digitization" went to tech-solute, represented by Managing Director Dr. Dirk Schweinberger (third from the right).
