Vision from the first hour
While studying physics and mechanical engineering – young, ambitious and equipped with a large portion of the conviction “we can do it better” – Dierk Langer and Siegfried Kahlich programmed the first electroplating control system in 1989. Without any experience in the electroplating industry, they simply took up the customer’s wishes and implemented them 100%. This resulted in the first self-optimizing control for an electroplating plant.
“Programmed on the green field”, independent of other market solutions, geared to practical requirements paired with visionary power and creative ideas, something revolutionary could emerge.
30 years more
Now we combine the experience of over 900 installations, thousands of hours of development and numerous start-ups with the innovative drive of the “Young Savages”, who are now part of our team. The 2-man engineering office has become an internationally operating company. The DiTEC success story continues.
Our principle is not only to anticipate the future but also to shape it and take responsibility.
“VISIONS ARE THE GUIDING PRINCIPLES OF THE PRESENT AND THEY CHANGE THE FUTURE.”(RAINER J. STAWSKI)
For our developments and for our customers who work with our products and rely on us. We are working on solutions for a resource-saving and cost-optimized electroplating process. Particular focus is placed on saving electricity, chemicals and water. Furthermore, we want to support people in their daily work. The workers at the electroplating plant as well as the IT security officer, quality controllers, buyers and planners.
We remain true to our successful concept:
“PRESERVING THE PROVEN AND IMPLEMENTING INNOVATIVE LEAPS”.
Our software has been undergoing constant development since 1989, sometimes in large leaps and bounds, sometimes with simple updates, but not every (building) stone has to be reinvented. Useful and proven features are retained, and the course for the future is set early on at other control points. Our specialists decide together with our customers and experts who have insights from a different perspective and whose feedback we incorporate into our development work. To this end, we cooperate with universities, research institutes and practitioners. Our developers are regularly present at IT conferences in order to be always up to date.
… with a view to the future
We draw our ideas from the existing wealth of experience and our creative resources, the ability to think “around the corner”. In our “laboratory” we develop apps, test the use of data glasses, the Ditec Glass and many other evolutionary steps we have in the pipeline. Apple founder Steve Jobs has always been a role model for us:
“THOSE WHO ARE CRAZY ENOUGH TO THINK THEY CAN CHANGE THE WORLD ARE THE ONES WHO DO. “(APPLE-GRÜNDER STEVE JOBS)
Our “world” is the electroplating control. Here we want to set standards in the future as well. But the most important thing is: The software is developed by people for people. What counts for us is the relationship and encounter within the DiTEC team as well as with our customers.
