Partners and Networks
Take a look at our partners and networks in which we are active.
KI-MAP (cooperation network for artificial intelligence and machine learning in machines, plants and production)
The MKW is part of the KI-MAP cooperation network, in which experts from research and science work closely with machine and system manufacturers to optimize and further develop the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning for practical applications.
Through continuous exchange of information between the network members, data-scientific methods and mechanical challenges are brought together and research is conducted into ideal solutions and new technologies. Scientists work together with providers and users on innovative products and technologies that can create new impulses and approaches to existing problems and challenges. A lively exchange of competence and experience among the members drives this process faster than pure research without practical input.
KI-MAP aims to bring together Industry 4.0 and Artificial Intelligence and to develop synergies from this. Results can be data-based process optimization, self-learning machine settings or predictive maintenance etc.
Certified Excellence Partner Bosch Rexroth Group
As a Certified Excellence Partner, we not only offer our customers complete solutions in the areas of engineering and automation, as before, but also implement intelligent and efficient systems together with Bosch Rexroth solutions that meet the highest performance requirements. In addition, a closer customer relationship is created by the fact that Rexroth solutions in the area of drive technology can also be purchased directly from MKW.
Beckhoff Advanced Experts
MKW and Beckhoff have enjoyed a constructive and trusting partnership for well over 10 years, qualifying MKW as a supplier of solutions from Beckhoff at the highest technical level as "Advanced Experts".
Systempartner Kawasaki Robotics
MKW has relied on the precise robot technology of Kawasaki Robotics for years. We are very proud to be awarded as "official system partner Kawasaki Robotics" and look forward to a professional cooperation and exciting projects with Kawasaki robots in the future.
Maschinenbau Netzwerk Bergisch Land
We are a member of the Maschinenbau Netzwerk Bergisch Land and are involved in various projects together with other companies. For example, we give guest lectures in the elective subject special mechanical engineering at the Bergische Universität Wuppertal, where we give students practical insights into special mechanical engineering.
The Mechanical Engineering Network Bergisch Land offers mechanical engineering related companies in the region the opportunity to further develop their strengths and actively network with partners. In regular intervals the network organizes meetings at the locations of its members. There you can get an insight into the work of the network, information about current projects and planned projects. Furthermore, the network offers the possibility to participate in trade fairs relevant to the industry in the form of a joint stand.
The InnoNet BL association forms a network between companies from different industries with different strengths and competencies. Through the cooperation and the continuous exchange of experience between the companies in the innovation network, a large development potential and joint innovations can be generated.
Different points of view from different industries let the network members work on strategic future fields and push concrete development projects. The products, services, competences and resources of the individual partners are combined efficiently and goal-oriented to open up new fields of application.
Bergische Schul-Technikum (zdi-Zentrum BeST)
he state-wide network Zukunft durch Innovation.NRW (zdi) has set itself the goal of promoting young talent in the fields of math, computer science, natural sciences and technology (MINT). As part of the Mechanical Engineering Network Bergisch Land and in cooperation with the University of Wuppertal, MKW is also involved in the zdi and the Bergisches Schul-Technikum (BeST). Together with around 3,800 partners from business, universities and schools, the aim is to introduce participants to MINT topics at an early stage and in a practical manner, thus preparing them for the challenges of digitization.
