Custom material handling or difficult task applications? Maybe a robot could be an answer for a stressfull task or something with high repeatibility. No stress, is what we'd say. At CPA we can help to ask the right questions and get to the core of the problem to find the right answers for your (co)robotic challenges. We take challenges from A to Z, from solution analysis to implementation, CE certification and aftercare.


Motion is everywhere. Fast & precise or heavy & robust, there are many different applications that need special attention and experience. CPA has a broad experience with different brands in smaller, medium and high power ranges.


A SCADA should be modern, intuitive and useful. Alarms should point out the issue, not be annoying and hard to delete. Due to a synchronization between the controls and the SCADA CPA succeeds in doing just that; getting the right information to the operator so that a problem can be described with ease and peace of mind. We upgrade the efficiency to commision and maintain the projects by adding the necessary logging, audit trails, macro implementations and object based data visualisations.
