Adlatus Robotics

Das Start-up ADLATUS Robotics adressiert den neuen, rasant wachsenden Markt der professionellen Servicerobotik mit innovativen Produkten wie dem Reinigungsroboter CR700.

Ob es um die Reinigung von Großmärkten, die Rasenpflege oder Security geht: Service-Roboter wie der Reinigungsroboter CR700 von ADLATUS Robotics übernehmen immer mehr Aufgaben autonom oder in Kooperation mit Menschen. Damit sparen Firmen im Bereich des Facility Managements, aber auch Endkunden aus Industrie und Handel, Kosten. Es kommt hinzu: Oft fehlt qualifiziertes Personal, die Sicherheitsanforderungen sind hoch, das Personal wechselt häufig und die Arbeitsbedingungen sind belastend und gefährlich.

Der Service-Roboter CR700 soll in Frühjahr 2017 am Markt eingeführt werden und reinigt autonom und selbständig auch größere Flächen. Das Gerät ist vielfältig vernetzt und kann ideal im täglichen Betrieb eingesetzt werden. Zielgruppe sind Facility Management Unternehmen, die die Reinigung im Auftrag der Endkunden durchführen, aber auch Kunden aus Industrie und Handel, die ihre Objekte in Eigenverantwortung reinigen.

Das Geschäftsmodell des Unternehmens ist es, die Entwicklung, die Produktion, Vermarktung, Vertrieb und Service dieser professionellen Roboter-Produkte eigenständig und wo immer notwendig und sinnvoll in Zusammenarbeit mit Kooperationspartnern umzusetzen.

AIM3D

AIM3D GmbH is a spin-off company from the University of Rostock with the aim to drastically reduce the cost of the additive manufacturing of metal parts.
During their work, the founders of AIM3D GmbH often dealt with many different types of additive manufacturing processes for plastics, but also for metals and ceramics. During this time, they realized that the industrial transfer of additive manufacturing techniques often failed due to the high material costs, especially when it came to the manufacturing of metal parts. For this reason, AIM3D GmbH was founded not just with the aim of simply building another 3D printer, but to overcome the limitations of materials and to revolutionize the additive manufacturing market from a cost point of view. In order to make this possible, AIM3D GmbH has designed a printer which offers the customer the opportunity to use multiple types of material on one machine and which is much more cost-efficient than current metal printers.
Our top priority is to design customer- and problem-orientated products. We are therefore always happy to hear from you. If you cannot find your desired material on our website, we will most likely still be able to find a solution together – just reach out to us!
