BENEFIT NOT ONLY FROM HIGH PRECISION BUT WITH UNLIMITED OPENNESS.

Protecting knowledge is not an advantage, but a disadvantage! Because it loses value faster and faster if it cannot be consumed when it is needed. Providing solutions that are not tied to time and place - that is the competitive advantage in this dynamic and networked world. We open all sources of our production facilities and invite you to cooperate.   

In addition to software sources, design data, interfaces of all kinds, this includes specialist knowledge from the areas of development, production, application and support. The data are open to everyone.

Häcker Automation stands for trusting cooperation on an equal footing! Our understanding: Common knowledge increases quality, creates an inexhaustible variety of products and offers a wide range of value creation opportunities. In the future you will benefit from a steadily growing pool of information and interactive offers.
