At the beginning there was a vision: A compact solution which measures everything around the robot directly inside the production cell
The Founder of WIEST AG, Dr. Ulrich Wiest, is from the branch and knows the problem from practice: Since 1996 he carries out developments in the field of robot calibration and played a significant role in the development of the absolutely exact robot as well as the measuring robot for KUKA and a doctorate in the Kinematics calibration of industrial robots.
