Strong Partnership - Complex Solutions from a Single Source

As the sole shareholder and CEO of Boll Automation GmbH, I would like to tell you about our strategy.

We are part of a group of medium-sized companies, Autision Group GmbH, and supply automated inspection systems. Our group of companies supplies robotics, machine vision and optical measuring technology under a common umbrella. Our core area of expertise lies in the integration of automation & vision, hence the name: Autision.

The robotics specialists at Boll Automation integrate sensors and measuring technology to implement innovative handling and post-processing solutions.

Use our solutions to ensure process optimisation through automation, with a high and consistent level of quality. Attract and retain customers in the global competitive environment through the unique selling point of your product quality. Not only does this allow you to lower costs, it also means that you can assign your valuable skilled employees to tasks which aren’t as monotonous or downright dangerous. And this will allow you to secure a significant increase in profits over your competition.
