Research and Development
The basis for innovation
The innovative technologies we employ for your benefit are based on our extensive R&D activities: 8% of the >4000 KROHNE employees work in research and development. This high proportion reflects our orientation towards innovation, and is enabled by our structure as a family business.
Next to sensor physics, the focus is on device communication and enabling technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT) in process industry, e.g. ethernet communication to transmit process and device diagnostic data for evaluation and process optimisation.
In addition, KROHNE conducts basic research in various areas of physics, and we maintain numerous partnerships with universities worldwide.
Current funded projects:
KROHNE Technology Day
The “International KROHNE Technology Days” is an discussion and exchange forum for all R&D topics within the KROHNE Group in the format of an internal conference. At the “TechDays”, employees from all R&D sites meet to share and discuss the research and development activities within the KROHNE Group. The format provides the basis so they can share and connect their projects, results, ideas and enthusiasm, while guest speakers from universities, customers and partners provide enriching impulses and different perspectives.
