90% of the group comprises of highly educated engineers from all leading universities. Our customers challenge us every day to act at the borders of what is technically and physically possible. This way we can innovate through customer driven projects. In addition, we invest significantly in Innovation and Development by testing and experimenting with new technologies, technical principles and the development of new products for specific market segments. Each employee at One of A Kind Technologies is incentivized and stimulated to allocate time to development and innovation and to come up with new initiatives.

VISION

We work at the center of key technological trends such as Smart Industry, Internet of Things and Big data. Besides technologial trends we study customer input and market trends constantly to align our technology roadmap. Demographic trends like a growing and aging population, need for increased healthcare, better treatment of our planet and increased demands from consumers for product and data transparancy, shape our business and technology vision.

It is our Purpose to enable markets to deliver only the right product to their clients, whilst our technology provides them the warranty that this happens in the most optimal manner, in the right quality and that the end product is authentic, including the data associated with it. We facilitate our client’s customer satisfaction, image preservation and contribute towards a more transparant and environmentally friendly world through open standards, intelligent usage of data and automation technology.

To stay ahead in rapidly changing markets, our customers require agile and flexible operational processes. This trend drives the further growth of adapative automation technologies. Our unique experience in combining machine vision, robotics, mechatronics and machine learning, realizes this flexibility in accurate and automated systems. Our systems enable our customers to handle smaller production-series with the same systems, whilst realizing shorter lead-times and lower inventory. With and without human intervention these systems detect autonomously product types and adapt the handling and processing of it.

As part of our technology roadmap we will develop smarter systems, more intelligent and sophisticated, equipped with self-learning algorithms. The data derived from these systems, is aggregated in a user friendly manner, helping our customers to control, improve and predict their businesses and operational processes.
