Motion Control Services
We digitalize your production and keep it running
Digitalization is one of the major challenges facing industrial production today – but it offers many advantages at the same time. Machine tool manufacturers and users also benefit from increased availability, quality, and efficiency. We’re there as a skilled partner to assist our customers on their path to digitalization. Our digital services create new opportunities to achieve lasting improvements in productivity. Connecting machines and installing the right software creates transparency for your data and processes. All to ensure that you can identify and fully exploit the potential of your machines.
Key to the digital transformationIncreasing demands from the markets for new technology concepts, flexible production, optimized processes, and greater and greater machine performance are putting pressure on both manufacturers and operators. The response to these challenges: a clear Yes to digitalization.
Three steps to your digital transformation
Our experts work with you to establish your company’s level of digitalization, and then develop a digitalization strategy specially tailored to your needs.
Installing the necessary hardware and software generates digital twins of your machines, plant, production and products, creating the foundation for ongoing data analysis.
Advanced algorithms and artificial intelligence turn data into valuable knowledge that helps you continuously improve your Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
Optimize production – along the entire value chain

Our products and services for your future
Identify and exhaust all potential: As a manufacturer or operator of machine tools, you benefit from our digital services for a networked world of machines.
We work with you to set goals and identify the action areas to optimize your production. If necessary, we perform a technical review of your plant and its system architecture. This lets us identify all the potential for digitalization. The end result is a digitalization strategy tailored to your needs and a roadmap for implementation. Your digital transformation starts here.
Digital Transformation Awareness & CNC Consulting
Develop your digitalization roadmap
Get ready for the digital transformation. Our on-site seminar helps you identify the opportunities and possibilities the digital transformation offers for your business. An additional seminar module lets you further expand your understanding of digital technologies in your organization and actively help shape the path of digitalization. A comprehensive workshop forms the heart of our consulting services. We work with you to discover your potential and develop your personal digitalization strategy.
Establishing a reliable action plan
With Digitalization Check as a Service we check your database and evaluate your hardware. We ensure that your machines are optimally connected to the IT system in your production. In doing so, we rely on standardized and scalable solutions. The result is an implementation plan to increase the digitization capability of your systems.
Creating the preconditions
Based on the digitalization check we upgrade your machine tools to the state or the art. For both Greenfield and Brownfield systems, we get your machine fleet ready for digitalization with Brownfield Connectivity Services, software updates, hardware upgrades or hardware retrofits. The necessary connectivity can be achieved at that point.
Brownfield Connectivity Service
Create networks for all kinds of production facilities
If there is no standard solution available, we use a gateway to connect your production network to the higher-level network – and that includes third-party devices, older controllers, and automation systems. You decide which data should be stored in which higher-level service and cloud systems.
Deploying the digital solutions
The next stage is implementation: We install the necessary software modules, configure them to your requirements, test them and put them into operation. We also connect your machine to the higher-level IT system. Now you have access to your data whenever you need it. This transparency forms the basis for further analysis. Our training programs ensure your employees can get the best out of the new applications.
Deriving optimization activities
Discover potential for optimization and improve your overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). For example, OEE is tracked using a monitoring system to ensure continuous optimization of production. We help you develop customer-specific dashboards and to perform data analysis. Moreover, we show you ways to use this knowledge to your advantage and thus extend the service life of your machines, save costs, and improve quality.
Improving manufacturing processes
We provide the right solutions for you to fully exploit the potential for optimizing your machines – and turn them into specific benefits for your production system. The main elements here are services like spare parts and repair services, service agreements, modernization activities like upgrades, retrofitting, and productivity improvement.
We are happy to look after the maintenance of your IT systems and machines. That’s why we have expanded our traditional range of services to include digitalized add-ons for remote support, increased machine transparency, proactive error analysis, and faster troubleshooting. Our database management and software updates ensure your IT system offers maximum availability. You can clear your mind and concentrate fully on your core business.
NX Virtual Machine Tool Services
Running in new programs means non-productive machine time. But that time can now be passed on to the digital twin instead. With NX Virtual Machine Tool Services based on the NX Software suite we assist you to create an exact virtual representation of each of your machines to support you at every stage of the lifecycle of the digital twin.
SINUMERIK ONE Virtual Commissioning Services
We assist OEMs with the virtual commissioning of new machine tools. The requirements specific to the project are first analyzed, and then the virtual commissioning process is prepared and implemented. Simulations enable any errors to be detected and rectified at an early stage. Our software-in-the-loop solution for the SINUMERIK ONE controller functions entirely without hardware, significantly reducing the time needed to commission the real machine.
Constantly improve processes and performanceOn the path to digital manufacture, our traditional services serve as a basis for definite and lasting improvement to your processes. We’re there to help you throughout the entire lifecycle of your production systems. Whether it’s for drives, motors or controllers, for mechanical engineers, dealers or machine operators, or for product development, production operation or optimization: You can find us wherever you are located – all around the world.
