The company history of optiMEAS GmbH

How a pioneer of digital transformation has grown from a vision.

2001 - 2009

It all began with a vision.

Burkhard Schranz bubbles with ideas. Im In the course of his professional career he links Interestn and Skillsobserved Ttrends and is recognized by its courage to implement a pioneer for digitization.

Even before the terms IoT and Industry 4.0 were on everyone's lips, Schranz had already been hovering over the technical development. The current optiMEAS GmbH works according to the vision: To sustainably optimize business processes and products and make them more efficient through digital networking of machines. 

2010 - 2013

Start of optiMEAS Measurement and Automation Systems GmbH

Initiator Burkhard Schranz launches 2010 after many years of experience in the measurement and Automationtechnology together with the lawyer Sabrina Rokuss the optiMEAS Measurement and Automation Systems GmbH. To do this, he gets his former colleague... and test bench specialists Dr. Jens-Achim Kessel and the transmission expert Dr. Patrick Langfeld into the boat as co-partner.

Besides the Service wächst the company's own smart device series. From the MEDILOG as an award-winning funding project of the Hessen Agency, are up to today trendsettingcloud-based Technologies has been created. These allow it the optiMEAS customers, live from any place in the world their to observe machines or plants, to analyze them with AI algorithms, controllable and to improve. The since 2011 ISO 9001 certified company acts from its location in Friedrichsdorf as a pioneer in the field of digital transformation.

2014 - 2016

The conquest of new markets

According to the motto: "Recognize today what will not work tomorrow", the optiMEAS team is constantly developing the hardware further. The smartPRO for teleservice, diagnosis and monitoring is used in the automotive, energy, environment and geology sectors.

This is followed by the smartMINI for Condition Based and Predictive Maintenance on mobile machines and the smartRAILwith which the railway also runs a safe railroad. Customer-specific microcontroller solutions complete the program.

In parallel, software for intelligent data evaluation in the cloud is being developed. Thanks to the modular app concept, individual applications can be mapped promptly and cost-effectively>. The staff is growing and also the fleet is completed by the company's own test motorcycle for CAN data.

2017 - 2019

optiMEAS drives industrial digitization as a pioneer

Designed for growth and digital trends, the optiMEAS 2017 a strategic partnership with BEKO TECHNOLOGIES from Neuss as new co-partner. The joint potential will bear fruit in areas such as digitization solutions and strategic planning.

Smart filter monitoring, remote maintenance of concrete pumps or operational optimization of plants are just a few of many application examples that optiMEAS successfully implemented. Using the configurable "Dashboard" with comprehensive visualization and analysis functions in conjunction with a smart device, all machine operating data can be monitored live on any PC or mobile phone. A well-founded data evaluation with alarm and recommendations for action serves as a basis for decisions on predictive maintenance.

2018 the subsidiary optiMEAS Software Solutions GmbH was founded. It is dedicated to the development and distribution of optiMEAS IoT Platform optiCLOUD - the intelligent control room for gaining knowledge from real-time and high-resolution data. 2019 will see new developments such as the smartI/O series, measuring amplifier for direct sensor connection, and smartCORE, a patented, modular software for use in (industrial) IoT solutions.


Digitisation is gaining in importance worldwide: The Corona Year 2020

For many people, home office is becoming a new way of working. Good networking guarantees that people remain connected to each other and are able to act via remote access even in a state of emergency. Video communication also ensures fast, visual accessibility; travel distances and costs are saved. optiMEAS this switch succeeds effortlessly.

Medium-sized businesses recognise the potential of digital machine data and are increasingly asking optiMEAS solutions. The new catalogue on products, solutions and corporate values is being published in the anniversary year.

With heart also in Switzerland

The second corona year is also challenging in many respects. Supply bottlenecks, long waiting times and price increases on the procurement market also gets optiMEAS to be felt. On the other hand, new perspectives are emerging with the founding of the in Switzerland and the associated expansion of the sales infrastructure. In addition, new modules and designs are being created that further optimise our solutions.

But above all, one point crystallises clearly in a holistic view of this time: business with heart, especially equality, is and will be more important than ever - a true togetherness as a bridge for a tense and divided society.
