vision  to reality

We have long since been driven by the seemingly impossible task of giving robots that essential ingredient: feeling. We set our sights on this goal because it challenged us, because it appealed to our pioneering spirit, and because we were convinced it would help our clients take huge steps forwards. We were right. Facilitate complex processes, fill gaps left by automation, improve production quality: And now all is possible with FerRobotics.

About Ferrobotics

Ronald Naderer

Ronald Naderer was born in 1975 and is the co-founder and CEO of FerRobotics Compliant Robot Technology GmbH. He holds both a bachelor's and master’s degree in Mechatronics and he received a distinction in his PhD from the Johannes Kepler University in Linz. Naderer also completed a Master of Business Administration with distinction at the Donau University Krems and the TU in Vienna.

Since establishing the company in 2006, Ronald Naderer has managed the technology, R&D, product development, sales, marketing organization and finance departments of FerRobotics. His core technological competences are contact-sensitive robotic solutions, competences which he is using to give rise to the industry of the future. Naderer has always been convinced that it was possible to equip robots with tactile sense and then use these new abilities to establish them as intuitive and reliable working partners for humans. Ronald Naderer is still driven by this passion and vision today.
