Vemcon joysticks make work easier for construction machine operators

Since the BAUMA 2016 in April, Vemcon delivers Sennebogen with joystick handles in their machines in series and hereby reduces the workload of the machine operator tremendously. The company Sennebogen Maschinenfabrik GmbH is one of the fifty biggest construction machinery manufacturers worldwide. Sennebogen is a full service provider and quality leader in crane technology and material handling, with a wide-range portfolio characterised by technical innovation.

The ergonomics and the design of Vemcon's joysticks have been specially developed for and together with Sennebogen and have been adapted to the functioning of the respective machines. The opinion and requests of the customers and the users played an important role during the product development process. Thus, it was possible to create a really new and unique form. Thereby, the entire position of the machine operator was further optimised, tailored to the most modern technology. A new comfort seat as well as joysticks and operating elements being optimally arranged enable a relaxed, concentrated daily work routine and minimise possible fatigue symptoms.

The service process of Vemcon allows to implement customer-specific solutions fast and cost-saving on the basis of a platform, to generate prototypes rapidly, which can be directly tested in the field under real conditions.

The changeover of all machine series to the new joystick generation is largely completed/ almost done and happened even earlier than planned. The feedback of the market was very positive on this innovation of the Sennebogen machines.

Vemcon GmbH
Vemcon increases the productivity of mobile machines. Their control system simplifies the challenges involved in handling excavators, graders, wheel loaders, as well as agricultural and municipal machinery. Operators can thus work more safely, rapidly, and precisely with their machines.

Along with their OEM customers, they are developing and realising a simplified operating concept based on the Vemcon control system platform. They plan to apply the system and its components to meet customer-specific needs in timely, cost-efficient manner while providing corresponding serial products.

To increase the productivity of existing machines in the market, Vemcon also sells retrofit systems. These products are distributed by original equipment dealers to contractors and other machine operating companies.

Vemcon is part of the ESA BIC Bavaria incubation programme from June 2015 to May 2017.

ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That does not mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.

ESA's Business Incubation Centre Bavaria was launched in 2009 and is ever since managed by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO) on behalf of the European Space Agency (ESA). With more than 105 newly founded startups and more than 1,300 new jobs under its name, AZO's incubation programme is one of Europe's most successful initiatives in promoting the commercial use of aerospace technologies. ESA BIC Bavaria and its renowned partners - DLR, Airbus Defence and Space, Fraunhofer IIS and Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Berchtesgadener Land - provide startups with financial and technical support at four branch offices: Oberpfaffenhofen, Ottobrunn, Nürnberg and Berchtesgadener Land.
