History of APE Engineering GmbHAPE Engineering GmbH company premises:
APE Engineering GmbH’s journey from a one-man business to a flourishing medium-sized company with revenue of around EUR 2 million per year. Precisely when the company was founded in 1989, the time was right for Dipl.-Ing. Andreas Prasuhn’s first idea, a lifting truck for 200l ribbed drums. This now nostalgic-seeming truck was the cornerstone of APE’s modular system.
Making work easier for workshop and production floor employees in all branches of industry
The machine range covers everything from drums to be handled, drums to be emptied, rolls, containers and bulky goods, through to the nuclear industry where people should no longer come into contact with radiation.
APE’s occupational safety objective:
Reducing people’s workload, right up to the point of automating monotonous work (e.g. emptying bags or drums), and above all emission control. This means keeping people away from the danger point in places where hazardous materials may escape.
APE devices and systems assist users in their duties, as the implemented controls monitor what is entered by operators and prevent the initiation of actions from input errors. Since the company was established, workplace safety has been the top priority for APE. Automation Today, the focus is clearly on automation technology, which means that controls play a significant role and take work completely or almost completely off people’s hands, such as with the APE bag emptying machine.
