The Qbing Industrial Solutions GmbH was founded out of a research group of the htw saar in 2017. The founders of the company Christian Schwindling, Christian Schmidt and Alexander Westhäusler got to know each other while working in the Qbing research group. Due to various projects they recognized the need for simple solutions for integrating identification systems. Medium-sized companies in particular need simple, flexible and cost-effective solutions for their corporate digitization. With our QIS.TE (pronounced KISTE) systm we want to meet this needs.
From idea to prototyp
The Qbing research group was founded at the htw saar in 2010 by our current advisor Prof. Dr. Steffen Hütter . Consisting of an interdisciplinary team including engineers and economists, the research group startet application-oriented research activities in the industrial environment focussing industrial production, associated logistical processes and the used technology. Through various projects of the research group, our founders were able to build up an immens know-how in relation to Auto-ID technology, especially RFID, and its use in industrial environments.
Since 2012 Qbing has been working in a research and development cooperation with ORBIS AG. Focus of this cooperation were current issues in production and logistics as well as Industry 4.0. In the course of the project a smart factory was set up and the need for innovative solutions in the field of identification systems became evident. We startet a prototypical development. To form this prototype into a product, we were funded by the EXIST start-up grant from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy from July 2016 to June 2017. With the developed product, Qbing Industrial Solutions GmbH was founded in September 2017.
We want to offer medium-sized businesses a flexible and cost-effective solution to advance digitization. For many small and medium-sized companies, digitization is a difficult topic due to various factors. The out-of-the-box approach and the modular structure of our products are the perfect solution for these companies for the path to their digital future.
