About plus10

Get to know plus10

We are a passionate company that aspires to shape the future of production optimization with our software tools.

What do we do?

plus10 is an AI spin-off of the Fraunhofer IPA for automated manufacturing optimization located in Augsburg and Stuttgart in southern Germany. We develop and offer self-learning optimization software especially for fully automated and complex machines.

Why do we do that?

Because we believe that we have a new era of production optimization. As a producing company you often deal with ineffective machines, downtimes or errors in the production process. Up to a certain point these problems can be solved with traditional optimization. However, the optimization can go further: Data is the key.

How do we do that?

We create closed optimization control loops.

Based on PLC data, our technology learns detailed behaviour models of the machines. This allows to optimize the system itself – continuously and automated. To meet our customers’ needs in the best possible way, we offer different products.
