FerRobotics

Your partner

for sensitive robotics

FerRobotics Compliant Robot Technology is a world leader in the development and distribution of flexible and intuitive robotic grinding, sanding, polishing, deburring equipment and cobot application kits. As the leader in technology, our clients and business partners trust in our top-quality expertise and well-founded experience in flexible automation. Our patented Active Compliant Technology offers versatile solutions, makes robots develop a sense for perfection and applies to every task conceivable in surface treatment and contact-sensitive handling.

As the world market leader in sensitive robotics, we close automation gaps seamlessly and in a surprisingly simple way. Our unique products stand for maximum benefit, optimal economic efficiency and guaranteed process reliability.

Perfection is achieved

when we strive for excellence

We provide the solution with which robots develop a feeling for perfection - for every conceivable task. With the patented Active Compliant Technology, we provide robots with tactile sensitivity and thus close quality-relevant automation gaps, because what is valuable needs to be treated with care. That which wants to inspire must be perfect. This is why robots are needed that can intuitively measure out their force and adapt to a surface at the moment of contact. Only in this way can automation processes achieve results where quality exceeds the usual standards and gives them a competitive edge. Because we are convinced that outstanding quality makes the difference, we ensure that our customers have more efficient and valuable production results.

VISION

Our vision is to optimize every aspect of the automated physical contact between machine and product, but also between humans, and make it an indispensable part of industrial and social life. This enables us to achieve better results in terms of quality and productivity, as well as optimal conditions for all those people who are involved in these processes.

In 2006 we founded FerRobotics. Since then, we have been expanding the boundaries of what is possible, helping our customers around the world to achieve a measurable increase in success.

Corporate values

In addition to our vision, our striving for the perfection of our work and the communication of values and principles, as well as the sustainable treatment of our environment and our fellow human beings, form the basis of our corporate management. We nurture consistent, fair and long-term relationships with our clients, business partners, suppliers, employees and investors. Constructive collaboration and communication optimize processes and consequently assure mutual success. Berndorf AG is a strategic partner of FerRobotics Compliant Robot Technology, providing ongoing support and bolstering development.

“An idea only becomes innovative once it has succeeded in the market”

The FerRobotics team follows this mantra with complete enthusiasm, above all the company founder DI. Dr. Ronald Naderer, MBA – the man who makes visions a reality.
