Expansion of the automation business field

Since January 2020, the smallest business unit in the Kurtz Ersa Group has been operating under the name Kurtz Ersa Automation. This was a clear sign of the future field of activity. Since then, the business unit has concentrated on automation projects for various production systems. In this context, there are both modular solutions for material flow and component handling as a supplement to soldering technology systems and customer-specific turnkey solutions for assembly and testing systems for complex assemblies.

The trend towards automated production solutions continues unabated. The requirements and complexity are constantly increasing. The networking of individual stand-alone solutions to form integrated systems, taking into account logistical aspects, is becoming increasingly important. Kurtz Ersa Automation is now also taking this trend into account, whether in the electronics sector or in other fields of application such as automotive. Kurtz Ersa Automation devotes particular attention to robot-based approaches to solutions, since this allows the highest degree of flexibility of solutions to be achieved. In addition, the solutions are designed in modular and cell construction. By concentrating on standardized automation components, customized production systems can be configured and implemented in a comparatively short time.

Robust, sustainable systems

Kurtz Ersa Automation relies on configurations that are as simple as possible and oriented towards the Lean concept, which allows for a quick set-up, so that the largest part of the delivery time can be spent on processes and their commissioning and optimisation. In the end, robust and thus sustainable systems must be created.


The idea of sustainability is also reflected in the use of robot-based solutions. In contrast to classic solutions and custom-made products, robot-based solutions – combined with vision systems – can be adapted to new and different tasks with comparatively little effort. Of course, components in contact with the workpiece must be replaced, as must the programming. However, these scopes can be realized quickly and cost-efficiently in the case of holistically modular designs. A production system of the Kurtz Ersa Automation brand is therefore not obsolete after a product life cycle, but can be sustainably reused.
