HMIs and sensor technology in mechanical engineering

As machines and automation technologies become more complex, the demands placed on machine control systems continue to increase. Modern HMI solutions must be precise, intuitive and, above all, safe to operate. All monitoring, control or surveillance units should be coordinated with the work processes of the people. We develop HMI and sensor solutions with individual interfaces for optimal connection to your machine control system.

Icon gear with wrench

Flexible installation

Variable installation options are provided by carriers made of aluminum, plastic, stainless steel or FR4 material. This makes it easy to glue, screw or plug your solution into your application.

Icon Connectivity

Individual interfaces

We support you in the selection of suitable interfaces to optimally connect your solution to the machine. We take care of component procurement and assembly for you in-house.

Reliable + Safe

Membrane keypads with double contact, safety glasses for touch systems or integrated emergency stop switches ensure safe machine operation.

Icon Hammer

Durable + Robust

Taking into account a long machine life cycle, we develop high quality and durable solutions up to IP69K with a long service life.

User-friendly

With ergonomic designs, modern touch operation or tactile keys and a coherent arrangement of all components, we ensure user-friendly operability.

Icon housing

Customized housings

We deliver your operating unit already integrated in an ergonomic housing. For this purpose, we develop an individual housing for you or fall back on a standard housing program.

HMIs

We develop and manufacture machine controls with touch screens in variable diagonals, illuminated capacitive keys and membrane keyboards individually tailored to your requirements.

We integrate emergency stop switches, select robust surfaces and bond displays with touch screens and cover glasses.

For a smooth communication between HMI and Main Board, we select the appropriate interface and take over the complete component procurement, assembly and programming.

Housing + carrier

We integrate your operating unit or sensor into individual holding frames and support parts made of plastic, aluminum or stainless steel. Our solutions can be easily inserted into your machine via holes, pressed-in threaded bolts or an adhesive on the back.

For handhelds, we integrate your operating unit into a suitable plastic or metal housing. We use standard housings or develop our own housing concept. Design, engineering, procurement and installation included. We manufacture complex plastic parts using 3D printing with our Multi Jet Fusion process.

Connectivity

We transfer your machines into the digital world. For this, we integrated NFC tags or SIM cards into your control front or sensor application.

This allows you to manage your machinery and associated machine data online while offering new services to your customers.

Thanks to our HK technology network, we can offer you a customized IoT solution from device to platform to operation from a single source.

Printed Electronics + Sensors

We develop and manufacture individual foil sensors for displacement, angle and force measurement or position detection for your machines and systems.

With an extremely flat construction height, our foil sensors can be integrated into your machine even in confined spaces.

Handheld lifts loads to a comfortable working height

Mechanical Engineering

Efficient production logistics save costs and time and provide relief for employees. Lifting equipment is used to conveniently bring loads to a comfortable working height and create ergonomic workplaces. For the company Waize Engineering we developed and produce a robust and illuminated complete handheld device to control a lifting device.

Smart operating concept for state-of-the-art injection molding machine

Mechanical Engineering

Operating units for injection molding machines must be safe and intuitive to use at all times. The traditional Swiss company NETSTAL relies on a smart operating concept of touch and haptic keys for its high-performance injection molding machines and system solutions

Mechanical Engineering

The right CNC control for every need and every budget: BWO Elektronik ‘s modular control concepts offer just that. At BWO, there is nothing off-the-shelf: engineering and software of the control concept are adapted to the requirements of the machine and user. Our customized front panel of touchscreen and switches ensures optimal machine operation.

Note on file naming

To ensure that your files can be transferred and processed by us without any problems, please observe the following instructions:

  1. Avoid spaces: Use underscores (_) or hyphens (-) instead of spaces.
  2. Use dots sparingly: There should be no dots in the name except before the file extension (e.g. .jpg).
  3. Avoid special characters: Characters like &, %, $ and # can cause errors.

Thank you for your understanding.
