Automation with industrial robots thought through from start to finish

Welcome to the world of HORST

With our Digital Robot Platform, you have all the building components for the optimal automation of your production processes in your hand.


For the long-term success of your production: Give it to HORST

Industrial companies around the world are confronted with the challenge of having to increase their efficiency and decrease their costs - at the simultaneous effect of a shortage of labor and growing international competition.

The ability of industries to adapt to this unstoppable trend is a question of vitality that cannot be answered without the use of robotic automation.

Be a pioneer and stay ahead or risk falling behind: Every wasted moment with non-optimized production lines can make the difference. Avoid taking time away from qualified employees and yourself with tasks that can be automated immediately.
