At the beginning there was a vision: A compact solution which measures everything around the robot directly inside the production cell
The WIEST AG was founded in 2001 by Dr. Ulrich Wiest. Since then the WIEST AG develops products and solutions in the area of highly accurate calibration of robots and robot cells.
With its three major products, LaserLAB, RotoLAB and GripLAB the Wiest AG is one of the leading suppliers of optical calibration system for industrial robots. Located in southern Germany, the WIEST AG is in the centre for robotics and automation. Whether it is cars, aeroplanes or medical technology: Customers of WIEST AG receive solutions for all measurement and calibration requirements for industrial robots.
The founder of WIEST AG, Dr. Ulrich Wiest was an industry expert: Starting in 1996, he was a developer in the field of robot calibration and played a significant role in the development of the absolutely exact robot and as well the measuring robot for KUKA. He obtained his PhD about the kinematics calibration of industrial robots (Download of the doctorate as PDF).
Since the founding of the WIEST AG he developed products in the area of robot calibration and participated in the research project “IroProg – Innovative robot programming” of the Federal Republic of Germany. His invention “3D-coordinates measuring system” was patented in 2006.
Dr. Ulrich Wiest passed away unexpectedly in April 2019.
We are a competent partner for all branches that produce with the help of industrial robots. Our Systems are currently applied mainly by the branches automobile industry, automobile sub-suppliers, plant construction, medical technology, aircraft construction and textile industry.
