Who we are

Nomen Est Omen

At ex­treme al­ti­tudes, the weath­er of­ten changes with­in min­utes, re­quir­ing climbers to ad­just their dai­ly sched­ule. Sher­pas are the world-renowned mas­ters of adap­ta­tion, al­ways show­ing flex­i­bly vis-à-vis new con­di­tions. SHERPA Ro­bot­ics, too, is about flex­i­bil­i­ty, con­ti­nu­ity and re­li­a­bil­i­ty. As an own­er-man­aged com­pa­ny, we are not in­ter­est­ed in short-term suc­cess!

Our Vision

The in­dus­try of medi­um-sized con­tract man­u­fac­tur­ing is un­der­go­ing pro­found changes. Non-au­to­mat­ed jobs, even small se­ries, are in­creas­ing­ly re­lo­cat­ed to East­ern Eu­rope. It is our vi­sion to con­tribute to a re­ver­sal of this trend. The use of cam­era-based ro­bot­ics boosts the pro­duc­tiv­i­ty lev­els of our home mar­ket West­ern Eu­rope.

Lean more on the in­dus­try trends and chal­lenges of mid-sized con­tract man­u­fac­tur­ers (in Ger­man).

Stagnation Means Regression

Ro­bots are like elec­tric­i­ty: Al­though the ben­e­fits of elec­tric pow­er for the in­dus­try were es­tab­lished, it took decades to de­vel­op and align upon the ide­al pow­er trans­mis­sion sys­tem. Three-phase pow­er trans­mis­sion, once gen­er­al­ly ac­cept­ed, be­came the spark for the elec­tric pow­er rev­o­lu­tion. Like­wise, it has tak­en un­til af­ford­able and in­tel­li­gent cam­era tech­nol­o­gy was avail­able to spark the load­ing ro­bot­ic rev­o­lu­tion. Only vi­sion sys­tems en­able a seam­less in­te­gra­tion into a world with­out grid plates and me­chan­i­cal fix­tures.

What We Are Proud Of

Sh­e­r­p­a­L­o­a­d­er® is the price-per­for­mance win­ner in flex­i­ble load­ing au­toma­tion. No oth­er stan­dard sys­tem is cam­era-dri­ven, more in­tu­itive to use, and more prof­itable in small and medi­um se­ries. We are proud to of­fer these ben­e­fits to our cus­tomers.



Au­tomat­ing small and medi­um se­ries comes with the same re­quire­ments for re­li­a­bil­i­ty and avail­abil­i­ty as does the au­toma­tion of large se­ries. Hence, SHERPA Ro­bot­ics lever­ages a re­gion­al net­work of spe­cial­ized ser­vice part­ners. We con­stant­ly strive to ex­ceed the ex­pec­ta­tions of our cus­tomers to re­duce pro­duc­tion cost, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 52 weeks a year. Our cus­tomers are in­vit­ed to judge us on how we de­liv­ery on this promise.

Ideas realised… 

… lat­er al­ways ap­pear sim­ple, as Wern­her von Braun once not­ed. SHERPA Ro­bot­ics is built upon 50 years of com­bined project ex­pe­ri­ence of its three part­ners – i.e. one ma­chine tool builder, one pro­gram­mer and one busi­ness man­ag­er – and its net­work of 12 ex­perts. Un­til re­cent­ly, in­no­v­a­tive con­tract man­u­fac­tur­ers used to pro­cure au­to­mat­ic load­ing sys­tems as in­di­vid­ual, cus­tomer-spe­cif­ic projects. Sh­e­r­p­a­L­o­a­d­er® com­bines the best ideas of such de­vel­op­ment projects into a stan­dard: proven com­po­nents, clev­er­ly con­nect­ed into one smart ro­bot so­lu­tion.


Highly Dynamic Team

You are an au­toma­tion en­thu­si­ast look­ing for a new pro­fes­sion­al chal­lenge? Great! We are con­stant­ly ex­pand­ing our dy­nam­ic team and cur­rent­ly search for ro­bot­ics pro­gram­mers with sol­id me­chan­i­cal skills, sales rep­re­sen­ta­tives, ser­vice tech­ni­cians, and ad­min­is­tra­tive sup­port staff. Our com­pa­ny of­fers com­pet­i­tive ben­e­fits and an in­spir­ing cul­ture that puts in­no­va­tion and cus­tomer ben­e­fits first.
