HEITEC stands for industry expertise in automation and offers you solutions, products, and services that range from planning to comprehensive automation systems for Industry 4.0 in the various sectors. Our HEITEC 4.0 solution portfolio helps you achieve networked production faster.
Modern warehouse management with SAP
To ensure efficient warehousing, the software experts at Artschwager + Kohl (A+K) recently joined forces with the automation specialists at Heitec to successfully replace the local material flow and warehouse management system at the plant of a major vehicle manufacturer.
HEITEC automation success stories
More efficient than ever before: automation of a labelling system
By using a virtual twin, HEITEC succeeded in significantly reducing commissioning times. By testing the PLC and drive software in real time, we significantly reduced development and realisation costs and improved process and product quality.

FAQs – automation
An important driver of production when setting up a plant is the software-based support for engineering processes that uses virtual models of machines, plants, robot applications, and material flows.
Extensive libraries of virtual components – ranging from presses, robots, conveyor belts, and entire automation systems to individual sensors and actuators – make it easier to model processes.
Automation strategies can be tested in terms of their functionality and real behavior over time, which enables process sequences to be optimized.
Using digital engineering, you can achieve higher roll-out quality for automation and drive solution software, and identify design and sequence errors at an early stage.
The strategy of running a “real” commissioning process on the virtual model lets you simulate all current and future operating sequences in your production environment in real time and test them using the original automation software.
This lets you achieve higher roll-out quality for automation and drive solution software and identify design and sequence errors at an early stage.
Plant upgrades are an important lever for boosting productivity. Thanks to software-based support for engineering processes using virtual models, HEITEC tests the automation software for system conversions at the desktop to ensure it can be installed in the plant without errors – and with only minimal interruption of the production process.
HEITEC provides assistance and support with a comprehensive approach covering consulting and training for your employees, planning and design, and implementation and execution.
The foundation is a strategy that’s custom-coordinated with your requirements and also allows you to satisfy all relevant legal requirements.
During implementation, we work with you to determine the components and functions that may be at risk, in order to keep the quality-checking and validation processes as lean as possible.
Using tests tailored to your product, we ensure that both legal and quality requirements are observed.
Using EPLAN Electric P8, the HEITEC specialists prepare all the documentation you need to configure, document, and manage electrotechnical automation projects for new plants, plant expansions, and retrofits.
This means that you can automatically derive detailed evaluations based on the updated wiring diagrams. It guarantees consistency and integration across the entire plant.
An important productivity driver when upgrading a plant is the software-based support for engineering processes using virtual models of machines, plants, robot applications, and material flows.
This means that automation software can be developed and tested at the desktop to ensure that it can be installed in the plant without errors and with only minimal interruption of production.
As a Siemens Solution Partner, HEITEC specializes in configuration using the TIA Portal and offers you all the services you need to integrate new automation systems with new developments – or when expanding or retrofitting your machines and plants.
HEITEC helps you install and configure security technology in your production and logistics processes. From risk analysis to developing and implementing security strategies – we offer an extensive range of services.
