Innovation through research

Research and development work can play an important role in improving a company’s competitiveness and increasing the quality of its services and products. In order to provide innovative and customized solutions, AviComp Controls has its own R&D department, which is responsible for the complete development cycle, from idea management and planning to testing and training. In line with the business strategy of AviComp Controls, this R&D work is aimed at developing innovative services and products that clearly distinguish us from the competition.

Main research areas

Our R&D department focuses on the following areas:

  • Modelling and simulation of compressor and turbine systems 
  • Quality assurance relevant for cabinet and equipment testing
  • Vibration condition monitoring of compressors
  • Alternative control concepts for compressors

Furthermore, the R&D department supports other technical departments in the optimization of tool chains and work flows.

Independent and collaborative R&D

AviComp Controls is engaged in both in-house and collaborative research and development work. In addition to our R&D staff, we cooperate with a number of universities, like the HTWK Leipzig, the universities of applied sciences in Merseburg and Zittau/Görlitz, and the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg. This cooperative work includes practical training programs, thesis projects, and medium-term grant projects. The success of our innovative research work is also demonstrated by our patents and registered designs.
