“Visual Components is one of our most important sales tools. We can use it to easily, quickly and comprehensibly model plants or even simple processes and present the concepts to customers in an optimal way.”

Fabian Stutz

CEO, Pharmabotix


„Visual Components inspired us right from the very beginning because it allows us to use an extended 3D library in a flexible and easy-to-use way. 3D layouts and simulations can be created very fast – and the use of VR is just as simple as one click in the software. The large variety of interfaces makes our daily work much easier.“

Thomas Kaufmann

Co-Founder & CEO, EXARON GmbH


“Visual Components offers us an unprecedented flexibility in the deployment, visualization, programming, and evaluation of machinery and plant components. In our main automation segment, this approach of simulation and anticipation of physical commissioning provides us with an unbeatable advantage in cost minimization and efficiency improvement for these projects. Thanks to the Startup Program, we are able to fully harness this potential.”

Jürgen Pacher

Managing Director, Par:Set

SCIO Technology develops customized battery-systems for the e-mobility sector. Our SCIO Brick 2.5 is a swapable 48 V battery system, usable individually or as part of a 15 kWh home storage system. We employ Visual Components for process optimization, including production simulation and issue prevention.
