Altenberger Strasse 69
We are your partner for research and development. As a one-stop-shop, we deliver solutions that are tailored to your needs. We integrate the required technologies to an overall system and accompany you along the entire innovation chain: from scientific research to the finished product.
We are dedicated to research and development for our national and international customers since more than 15 years. We support our customers from idea generation, research and development to the introduction of series production. Our infrastructure allows for the production of prototypes and small lot sizes as well as the verification of your systems and components. By integrating the required technologies, we develop our customers’ systems and solutions of the next generation.
The demands that products and production processes must meet are constantly on the rise. Challenges include the growing flexibility of production processes, elevated process quality, increasing miniaturisation and customisation of products and systems versus shorter development times, resource-saving production, and significantly more efficient integration of development and production processes.
Mechatronics – an intelligent fusion of informatics, mechanics and electronics – is our forte. The specific knowledge that our employees possess forms the basis for collaborations in research and development and the foundations to design intelligent, networked or autonomous systems for the manufacturing industry.
- Additive manufacturing tools (3d-printing)
- Machinery to produce electronics
- Design tools (multi-physics finite element analysis: structural, fluids, electromagnetics, thermal, ...)
- Tools for multi-parameter optimization
We see drive engineering as encompassing electrical and hydraulic drive systems, meaning that actuators, motors, electronics and software are all obtained from a single source.

ELECTRONIC CIRCUIT DESIGN
We offer our customers all the necessary steps from design and technology selection through to the provision of prototypes and small series batches. This includes circuit design along with functional simulation and circuit board development, production and commissioning. Accompanying this, the hardware-related software architecture and its implementation is designed for a wide range of different platforms (FPGA, SoC, microcontrollers, etc). Thanks to the close cooperation of hardware and software development engineers over the course of the entire project, we very quickly and efficiently achieve our set objectives for our customers.

Mechatronic solutions are characterized by the amalgamation of different sub-systems in the fields of mechanics, electronics and informatics. Control engineering is related to and thereby efficiently and intelligently aligned with the behaviour of the various systems. When it comes to developing complete solutions, control engineering therefore plays a key role in achieving ideal solutions.

Software development at LCM is organized into two levels: on one level, software is developed as an integral part of mechatronic systems in terms of a real-time system or for human-machine interaction. On another level, LCM’s own simulation software helps to overcome complex tasks where commercial software tools have reached their limits.
