Together with our customers and partners, we develop professional solutions within advanced highly flexible industrial robot systems. Our core competence areas are: Industrial robot systems; Software for industrial robot systems; Research and Development. Since its establishment in the year 2000, PPM implements advanced automation projects with robots from various manufacturers. Our solutions range from integration and consulting services to complete turn-key robot installations.
The Norwegian-South Korean project iVAR, cofounded by the Eurostars program, has accomplished its envisaged development.
The blooming ROS industrial community invited us to two inspiring exhibitons to Singapore (ROS-I Asia Pacific and ICRA), where we just started up the Consortium, but receive an enormous interest from local and global companies, universities, institutes.
PPM is a constant promoter of robotics and automation, on the local and international market.
Automated production is becoming increasingly important in Norway. In order to improve the competitiveness of the industry, production should become more efficient and profitable. The Forum will help to create partnerships between companies, equipment suppliers, specialist communities, as well as research and education communities. Forum for Automated Production is a meeting place to help to enhance value creation, profitability and competitiveness using automated solutions in the industry.
PPM thanks all partners and collaborators at this year's biggest Industry 4.0 themed exhibition of Hungary, IPAR NAPJAI (INDUSTRY DAYS). This year IPAR NAPJAI was accompanied by the industry trade show MACH-TECH. The event brought together professionals from nearly all branches of industry and featured innovative ideas and latest trends, in particular in automation and robotics.
PPM thanks all visitors, partners and collaborators at the Hannover Fair 2017. Together with our development partner HIWIN, PPM showed various application areas of FlexGUI 4.0. FlexGui is user-friendly, intuitive, smart phone like user interface for industrial robots.
Industrial PhD Candidate Csongor Mark Horvath presented the current results of his and PPM’s research work at the Workshop Cognitive and Etho-Robotics in iSpace (CERiS 2017) in Hungary.
Our commitment to the ROS-I community matures in our contribution by giving a part of FlexGui 4.0 as open-source project to interested users. The latest version contains many minor improvements, as well as an advanced stability check.
We are pleased to announce the new release of FlexGui 4.0. The intuitive robot interface and controll software is freely available for everyone who owns a FlexGui 2.0 license.

The goal for safe human-robot collaboration are robots that actively make decisions not to harm human beings. The current approaches to solve the safety issue in human-robot collaboration, assume that the robots response to danger is reactively passive.
