EINS Research and Development Projects:

Intelligent tools for a network based manufacturing of the future
The upcoming requirements for dynamic production and logistics processes systems can only be fulfilled by so-called Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), which use integrated intelligent sensors to perceive their environment and actuators with which they can influence them.
CPS can be integrated into products, machinery and equipment, which then can customize itself by self-tuning and reconfiguration to changing orders and operating conditions. Their use represents a paradigm shift in the production and Germany will become the world's leading supplier for Cyber-Physical Systems.

The aim of this project is to develop a cyber-physical system smart tool consisting of an intelligent tool system and its interaction partners in the tool cycle, such as machine tool or instrument. The intelligent tool system is the core innovation of the project.

This cooperative project is funded by the BMBF.


Automatic Non-Destructive Recognition of Used Printing techniques On Substrates:

The main idea of our project is to ease and reduce inspection effort on forensic document examination and to provide a central database containing information about printing technologies and printers as well as specific information of individual printers. This information can be used to identify printers used for document counterfeits and to link criminal organizations worldwide. The evidence obtained from such printed documents analysis will provide useful forensic information to law enforcement, security and intelligence agencies.

The objectives of the innovation project Andrupos are to develop technologies for a software based, automated and non-destructive analysis of printed documents in terms of the identification of the utilised printing technology. Documents in question will be banknotes, ID cards, stamps, tickets, contracts, tickets, bills, financial documents, threathening letters.


Developing innovative products and production systems:
Manufacturing companies should be encouraged to develop and implement that enable strategic development of product innovations and the development of innovative products and production systems efficient new methods and tools. Technological trends to be identified early in order to tap the development potential for innovations in time.
The EINS GmbH assumes as part of the joint project, in particular the role of a software developer to provide support for the development and implementation of methods and procedures in appropriate software solutions and the development of interfaces to existing systems, which are to be used as part of a technology adaptation process.

This joint project was funded by the BMBF.

OPUR - Original Product Security and Traceability System

Counterfeit products threaten the consumer:
In spring 2006, the world was fighting against bird flu. The company Roche had developed with the drug Tamiflu® a drug that could possibly keep the epidemic in check. A little later appeared fake pharmaceutical packaging in which glucose tablets were. For the consumer, it was practically impossible to identify the packaging and fake drugs.
But in other areas, the counterfeiting of goods has become a sad "growth market".

OPUR -the Original Product Security and Traceability System:

Marking technology against piracy - the already standardized bar codes are designed so that a forgery by the simplest means is reliably detected. It is enough to read the barcode thus generated with a commercial flatbed scanner or mobile phone and check.

This joint project was funded by the BMBF.
