“PRECision CONcept for robotics“ – the name of the Bayreuth company, Preccon Robotics GmbH itself, makes it clear: the company develops software and hardware which guarantees the precise mode of operation of robots.

Preccon Robotics was founded in April 2006 by two robotics specialists, Dieter Ladegast and Hartmut Lindner. The company is located in the Bayreuther Gründerzentrum (BGZ) [Bayreuth Founders’ Centre]. The BGZ is integrated into the competency centre Neue Materialen Bayreuth (NMB) [New Materials Bayreuth]. Preccon Robotics has made use of the innovative environment offered here since the founding. With the research project FlexWB, Preccon Robotics, has applied to the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) [German Federal Ministry for Education and Research] together with NMB, Daimler Chrysler, VW and Thyssen.

The company’s customer list is impressive. Leading automobile manufacturers such as Daimler Chrysler or Volkswagen already belong to the permanent clientele which includes companies like adidas, Bosch, Continental and Infineon. Preccon Robotics is also very successful internationally and has many contacts to the most important industrial nations such as China, Russia and the United States of America.

Precision in every detail – working out concepts exactly and realistically, successfully implementing projects and increasing the physical precision of robots enormously – that is Preccon Robotics.
