The revolution of manual work in the smart warehouse

German Bionic

German Bionic, with locations in Augsburg, Berlin and Tokyo, is the first European manufacturer to develop and produce intelligent power suits. Exoskeletons or external skeletons are human-machine systems that combine human intelligence with machine power by supporting or amplifying the wearer’s movements.

The Cray X from German Bionic is the world’s first networked exoskeleton for the working world, which, connected to the Smart Factory, self-learns to reinforce lifting movements and prevent incorrect posture. It thus becomes an intelligent link between man and machine. In doing so, it protects the health of the workers, measurably reduces accident risks and thus improves work processes.

“With our intelligent power suit, we are revolutionising manual work. Where robotic systems and full automation reach their limits, German Bionic integrates both the flexibility and problem-solving creativity of humans and the physical support of manual tasks into digital processes. Consisting of the German Bionic IO cloud robotics platform and the smart Cray-X power suit, we offer a complete system solution with a holistic approach to health and safety. In this way, we sustainably maximise occupational health and safety while ensuring optimal business processes and maximum effectiveness.” Dr. Peter Heiligensetzer, German Bionic CTO and Founder


German Bionic and the Cray X have received numerous awards for this innovative technology, which puts people back in the focus of Industry 4.0, including the Bavarian and German Founder’s Prize, the Land of Ideas and Automatica Award, as well as a nomination for the renowned Hermes Award at the Hannover Messe.
