SensAction was founded in 2008 and has been part of the Endress+Hauser Group since 2017. The fully owned subsidiary of Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG based in Reinach, Switzerland will now be fully integrated into the Group. “We have been growing together with Endress+Hauser for years, in joint technology development as well as direct sales via our sales centers. Our new company name and the adapted appearance now make this change visible,” says Chairman of the Board Stefan Rothballer. 

Broad range of applications

The instruments for measuring concentrations in liquids utilize surface acoustic waves (SAW), a form of ultrasonic. This technology can be deployed in all Endress+Hauser target markets. In the food & beverage industry, for example, it can determine the sugar content in mixed beverages such as soft drinks. “Our devices precisely and reliably measure concentrations in real time while the process is running. That makes the circuitous route via the lab superfluous,” explains Michael Münch, Head of Production, Development and Quality. 

Information about product quality

The measurement instruments made in Coburg are thus an ideal fit for the Endress+Hauser strategy. “Our customers not only want to monitor physical parameters but also directly obtain information regarding product quality,” says Dr Mirko Lehmann, CEO of Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG. “Our goal is to be the market leader in ultrasonic flow measurement technology in combination with quality measurements.” 

The company is also integrating SAW technology in order to expand the Endress+Hauser product offering. “By combining quality and flow measurement, we can provide our customers with information for process optimization. We also want to use Industry 4.0 solutions to help our customers improve efficiency and quality,” adds Michael Kaiser, Head of Ultrasonic and IIoT Solutions. 

Extensive application knowledge

Endress+Hauser Flow Germany AG has around 20 employees in Coburg. The center of competence for SAW not only develops and manufactures measurement technology but also supports customers with the required application know-how. The company also boasts superior knowledge in the field of model building and signal processing. The specialists, who are part of the SAW scientific community, work closely with universities and are involved in industry associations.
