Accuracy or Speed? That will no longer be the dilemma in simulation!

Accuracy or Speed? That will no longer be the dilemma in simulation!

Who we are

In 2012 Oliver Hermanns founded fleXstructures GmbH and started his journey of building a global leading software company in the field of flexible simulation. Together with a passionate team, fleXstructures succeeded in expanding the business and distributing the new IPS software in several countries around the world. Only a short time after launching the IPS software, more than 100 customers worldwide trust in the quality and use IPS in their production process.

The team’s passion and the quality of their software have also been recognized by many different organizations and resulted in various awards, such as the Hannover Messe’s Robotics Award 2017, the Zukunftspreis Pfalz 2017 of the Bezirksverband Pfalz, the Success Award 2018 of the Ministry of Economics, Transport, Agriculture and Viticulture of Rhineland-Palatinate and the Investitions- und Strukturbank Rheinland-Pfalz (ISB) and the Innovation Prize Rhineland-Palatinate 2019 of the Ministry of Economics of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Our Mission

We at fleXstructures are driven by innovations to obtain accurate results in high speed. These innovations improve mobility – resulting in less risk in road traffic, lower emissions and more time for the essentials in life. With a great passion we have created the IPS software that allows accurate simulation in real-time for the design and safeguarding of mile-long vehicle electrical and hose systems usable in a virtual environment.

fleXstructures History

2016

Presenting the complete IPS product portfolio at Hanover Fair 2016 for the first time.

The 2nd IPS Cable Simulation Conference was organized in Gothenburg. Moreover, our sales partners in Japan (SCSK) and China (PAN-i) hosted major events for IPS users and people interested in the software.

2015

IPS in China: Start of the cooperation with our sales partner PAN-i.

The 1st IPS Cable Simulation Conference in Deidesheim: For the first time, users and interested persons from all over the world come together for a fruitful exchange with IPS experts and other users from various domains.

2014

First presentation of IPS Virtual Paint-Spray at Hanover Fair 2014.
IPS in Korea: Start of the cooperation with our Korean sales partners Empias and PLG.

2013

IPS software in Japan: Start of the cooperation with our sales partner SCSK. In October, SCSK organized an IPS Cable Simulation Technical Seminar with 50 participants from Japan’s automotive industry.

2012

In May 2012, the company fleXstructures was founded as a spin-off company of Fraunhofer ITWM in order to distribute the new software IPS Cable Simulation.

2009

The extensive software package IPS Cable Simulation was published in 2009 as a result of the cooperation of FCC and ITWM.

2004

Cooperation of FCC and Fraunhofer ITWM: There was a need to add flexible wire models to the automatic path planning of IPS, because the service pipes which were carried along with the robots’ motions often wore out early. Therefore, FCC started cooperating with Fraunhofer ITWM and new algorithms were integrated into the IPS software.

Before 2004

Development of the IPS software: Fraunhofer Chalmers (FCC) developed algorithms for automatic path and assembly planning in context of robotics and factory automation projects.
