Process chain – Robotics
toolcraft is your full-service partner for automation and machining processes – from the initial idea and planning to integration. We save you immense time, as with us there is no need to coordinate between design, R&D and procurement.
Requirements and feasibility analysis
We ascertain the technical requirements and physically analyse which processing steps need to be replicated. This results in the creation of a basic design concept, which serves as the basis for a 3D simulation.
Simulation of movement patterns
We simulate the movement patterns so that we can determine the space requirements and real-time cycles to avoid collisions. Existing machines can be added using CAD interfaces.
Simulation of the workspace
By simulating the workspace virtually, we do away with the need for time-consuming physical tests. As an add-on, we can also create a virtual tour of your facilities.
We design the entire system, even taking care of the programmable logic controller (PLC).
Assembly and installation
As part of our comprehensive approach, we take responsibility for the logistical aspects as well as the installation and maintenance.
We implement your automated solution, ensure that it is operating properly and train your staff.

Examples of our work – clearly organised for your reading pleasure
Micro-plastic components - at the push of a button
For Sonova Holding AG, toolcraft has realized a fully automated production of cerumen filters for hearing aids plus dispenser system. All challenges - tool micro injection moulding, automation robotics, optical component testing - were mastered from one source.
- Injection moulding + mould making
The force of attraction
For ten years, the Section of Experimental Oncology and Nanomedicine (SEON) at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Erlangen has been researching innovative diagnostic and treatment methods. One of the techniques developed here by senior doctor Prof. Dr. med. Christoph Alexiou and his team is the magnetic drug targeting (MDT) drug delivery system. With the help of an innovative magnetic robot, the active substance can be transported directly to the areas requiring treatment.
The family-run company Speck Pumpen Walter Speck GmbH & Co. KG has been manufacturing pumps and compressors for a range of industrial applications for over 100 years. Some of its pumps are fitted with magnetic couplings. To help the company place magnets inside its magnetic holders, toolcraft designed, developed and programmed an automation system and installed it on Speck Pumpen’s premises.
Production of furniture 4.0
For the automation of manual processes, toolcraft implemented two robotic solutions for the bathroom furniture manufacturer Sanipa that are unique in the industry: 1 picking robot for gripping and feeding components and 1 robot cell for assembling drawers.
Embossing plate processing - fully automated
To make metal signs even more efficient to manufacture, the toy manufacturer Schopper commissioned us with a robotics solution for the embossing plates required for this purpose. From hardware to offline programming, toolcraft needed 20 weeks for the project.
Grinding and polishing robotics for ceramic parts
In partnership with Oechsler AG, toolcraft achieved a unique milestone: In order to grind and polish the ceramic component for the gear lever display and the parking and menu buttons, the most complex machining processes were automated.
Automated processing of high-quality plastic parts
For NIFCO KTW GmbH, toolcraft has realized a robot cell that processes high-quality coatings of interior plastic components in the visible area of vehicles. The complete solution achieves an accuracy of +/- 0.1 mm.
