Trusting Partners

“AIXEMTEC is a reliable, agile and effective development partner. They developed and installed a novel active alignment machine for our LIDAR systems within six months after the purchase order - keeping the promised delivery time."

MICHAEL KIEHN • DIRECTOR SENSOR DEVELOPMENT, Ibeo automotive

„Precision is elementary for our products. With AIXEMTEC's help and the AIXEMTEC machines providing an absolute accuracy < 2 µm we were able to significantly improve the characteristics of our products. In a close and trustful cooperation AIXEMTEC was able to fulfill every special request and delivered everything on schedule.”

JOHANNES BECKHOFF • PRODUCT MANAGER, Beckhoff Automation

„Flexible prototype and process development as well as the protection of the associated IP are crucial for us. Therefore we highly appreciate AIXEMTEC's open access development environment, which gives us full transparency and control over the prototyping system, its interfaces and process parameters."

DR. STEFAN HENGESBACH • CTO, Q.ANT

„AIXEMTEC is a great partner in achieving automation goals in the assembly of optical elements. leopil/anamoc relies on the expertise of the professionals at AIXEMTEC, enabling us to advance cutting-edge projects with our customers.“
