Pilz GmbH & Co. KG is technology leader in safe automation technology. In this area, Pilz is consistently developing a role as a total solutions supplier with solutions for safety and automation technology.
The objective of Pilz is to automate machines and plants in such a way that the safety of man, machine and environment is always guaranteed.
In addition to the head office in Ostfildern near Stuttgart, the family business is represented by over 40 subsidiaries and branches on all continents.
Products and solutions for complete automation:
Pilz offers complete automation solutions based around its core skill of safety – in everything from the sensor technology to the control systems and actuators.
The product range is being expanded to include corresponding software tools, diagnostic and visualisation systems as well as services.
So complete system solutions emerge. Complete also means that our solutions consist both of automation solutions and of safety solutions.
To do this, we merge safety and automation into one solution.
Pilz solutions can be used in all areas of mechanical engineering, including the packaging and automotive sector, robot applications plus the wind energy and railway technology.
These solutions guarantee that baggage handling systems run safely at airports, that theatre scenery moves smoothly and funiculars or roller coasters travel safely.
We inspire by our innovative strength:
Innovation traditionally plays an important role at Pilz.
With our products such as the first E-STOP relay PNOZ, or the first safe 3D camera system SafetyEYE worldwide, we have set standards and we have made industrial history.
Innovative strength is our driving force.
Pilz was and continues to be pioneer for the automation of the future.
At Pilz, competencies and capacities in development and production are always built on a sustainable basis.
Our strategy is to seize innovative ideas and make them market-ready and suitable for industry.
Pilz is a successful, independent family business. Profits are reinvested, guaranteeing further growth.
With an investment quota of 20 per cent in R&D Pilz is underlining its claim to be one of the most innovative companies in automation technology.
Having starting production in the new Peter Pilz Production and Logistics Centre, Pilz is now converting its previous production area into a state-of-the-art research and development centre.
Once the building work is completed, around 330 engineers will occupy 7,300 square metres, developing new technologies and products for the automation of the future.
