We source all our motion control technology from WITTENSTEIN AG, an actuation company that designs and manufactures actuation components including:

  • Low backlash planetary gearheads
  • High performance brushless servo motors
  • Highly integrated rotary and linear actuators
  • Control & power electronics

Using advanced electro-mechanical control knowledge, combined with our networking and software skills, we integrate the actuation components into mechatronics systems to meet our customers’ precise requirements.

Safety critical mechatronic developments are also undertaken following proven, safety critical development life cycles. Our robust and effective safety critical development life cycle has been ingrained into our engineers, and is well and truly institutionalised within our company working practices. This helps explain our consistently high quality of work and high levels of customer satisfaction.

Experts in IEC 61508 and other domain specific adaptations of IEC 61508.

We use a fusion of leading edge tools and methodologies blended with good old fashioned requirements based engineering to deliver the right product, at the right cost, at the right time. Always keen to increase our knowledge,  WITTENSTEIN are members of the Safety Critical Systems Club and the 61508 organisation.

Our engineering services are supported by experienced project managers, following proven working practices that encourage engagement between our engineers and those of our customers and help facilitate knowledge transfer.

Openness and trust are key elements in our service offering. We provide regular progress reports to our customers and encourage their participation in design and safety reviews, and we never shy away from asking an awkward question, if we believe it will improve the end result.
