WHO WE ARE


  • null

plus10 is a high-tech spinoff initiative of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA) in Stuttgart. It aims at proving that the AI-based technology for automated root cause detection in manufacturing lines developed by us can be scaled-up from a demonstrator to industrial machinery. In various projects our systems helped to increase productivity by 5 to 15% per machine (in average + 10 % OEE increase). The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi EXIST program).

SHANNON®: OUR INTELLIGENT OPERATOR ASSISTANT
