Featured Case Study

Siemens Logo
High voltage, direct current (HVDC) is key for long-distance bulk electric power transmission. Siemens developed a revolutionary new test concept for HVDC components and selected us to guide industry experts from Siemens AG and scientists from Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg using the NI platform to implement a proof of concept for that new test circuit at record speed.

Building on the success of the proof of concept, we now support its migration into a fully-grown software test application for the world-wide leading facility for HVDC tests, which is currently being built from the ground up in Nuremberg.

Most of our customers require of us to not disclose any specifics of the work we do for them. Please get in touch to hear more about our current and past projects.

MONITORING SYSTEM FOR ARIANE 6 PRODUCTION LINE

MT Aerospace, the German aerospace specialist from Augsburg, signed a multi-million contract with our customer HAGE for the supply of a custom HAGEmatic for precision work on the Bulkhead of Ariane 6, a rocket of the European Space Agency ESA.

HAGE entrusted us with the implementation of a distributed monitoring and logging system that leverages the power and flexibility of NI LabVIEW and the NI RIO technology to supervise – amongst others – milling and friction stir welding processes.
