bentekk develops gas measurement instruments for detecting toxic pollutants in industrial applications.
10x faster measurements at lower total cost enable regulatory compliance and increase workplace safety.
More efficient industrial processes enabled by enhanced safety: Comnovo develops and markets a new radio-based warning system to reduce the accident risk for collisions between persons and vehicles, in particular for forklifts and wheel loaders.
Confovis offers optical 3D measurement systems for industrial quality control of surfaces down to the nanometer range. The patented system works without moving parts and differs from the competition by its robustness and high measuring speed.
CONTROS provides sensor systems for detecting dissolved CO2, hydrocarbons and methane in water for up to 6,000m. These systems find their applications in Offshore risk management (platform safety, leak detection, blow out prevention, etc.), general oceanographic research such as greenhouse gas studies as well as the exploration / exploitation of methane hydrates. One major future challenge is the monitoring of CO2 sequestrated oil and gas deposits.
Exit since March 2015.
Cuciniale develops and markets intelligent cooking assistence systems enabling everybody to cook ingeniously easy like a Chef.
dotscene GmbH develops hardware and software for the efficient capture of 3D models, with the special focus on mobile 3D laser scanning and mapping for indoor and outdoor environments. Our latest laser scanner development dotcube 600k can be used as handheld device, on drones, and on vehicles. Mobile and flexible data acquisition is enabled by applying SLAM algorithms (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) from the domain of mobile robotics. This makes laser scanning independent of external reference variables such as GPS or specific markers. Based on this technology dotscene creates CAD models, true-to-scale floor plans and facade projections for its customers, mainly from the real estate sector.
EnShape GmbH develops, produces and sells highly accurate and very fast 3D sensors, which simplify manifold automation task or even make such possible for the first time.
Exit since October 2016.
Founded in Munich in 2010, fos4X GmbH is a specialist for reliable, fiber-optic measurement technology and sensor technology as well as for innovative data analysis. It develops intelligent solutions for optimizing wind energy. These solutions are primarily used in wind turbines to optimize operation.
The fiber optic sensors and solutions are also used in the fields of electromobility, process measurement technology and railway technology.
The Grandperspective GmbH was founded in Berlin in 2018 with the purpose of protecting people and the environment. Grandperspective is introducing revolutionary remote sensing technology into a highly professional market with severe hazard potentials. The scanfeldTM early warning solution combines novel sensors with an intelligent software solution to the world's first remote monitoring solution for chemical plants. With FTIR spectroscopy hundreds of different gases are identified from a distance of up to several kilometres. The founders René Braun, Peter Maas und Alexander Herrmann bring in 25 years of experience in the development an application of remote monitoring technology together with extensive experience in business development.
HiperScan GmbH was founded in 2006 as a spin-off of the Dresdner Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS). The innovative scanning grating technology developed at the IPMS forms the basis for the near-infrared (NIR) spectrometer developed by HiperScan. The analytical systems make it possible to significantly reduce investment costs to make NIR-analytics affordable even to small companies. Today, the company HiperScan stands for high-quality technologies to quickly analyse nutrition facts of processed meat and fish and to reliably qualify pharmaceutical raw materials. So, the product Apo-Ident has been tailored for the safe and easy identification of compounding substances in pharmacies.
Luphos develops and manufactures high-precision optical sensors for quality and process control in industrial fabrication as well as metrology platforms for the quality control of high precision optics.
Exit since May 2014. Purchaser: AMETEK Inc. (NASDAQ: Ametek)
Senodis Technologies GmbH in Dresden was spun off from the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in October 2019 to establish the Ceracode® marking solution developed at IKTS in the market. Ceracode® is a marking concept for hot-formed metal components where common marking solutions fail due to process temperatures above 900 °C. The printing process based on ceramic inks solves this challenge and enables seamless recording of the components along the process chain. Senodis is also developing other products for the digital component tracking and tracing in yet unreached areas of the metal industry and other industrial sectors.
Variolytics is a Stuttgart-based technology company focused on measurement technologies and process optimization. Dr. Matthias Stier (CEO), Johann Barlach (CFO) and Steffen Goerner (CTO) founded the company in March 2020, with the aim of making the invisible visible through innovative measurement technologies and thus contributing to a more sustainable society. The technology is used at wastewater treatment plants to monitor greenhouse gases in the wastewater treatment process and provide recommendations for actions to avoid them.
