Philippe Fleischmann acquired his basic knowledge in automation between 1998 and 2009. He initiated his professional education with an apprenticeship as automation engineer at Späni Elektromechanik AG. Afterwards he complemented the Technical School in Automation at “sfb”. During this time, he was simultaneously employed as SPS programmer at Marti Engineering AG which allowed him to directly apply his acquired knowledge on the job. Subsequently, he worked six years in the area of project management at Marti Systeme AG where he was responsible for processes from initial planning, assembly, programming until commissioning and the handover to the end user. Before joining the NCCR Digital Fabrication, Philippe worked at ABB Switzerland which allowed him to gain further experience within an internationally operating company. Since February 2016, Philippe supports the team of the NCCR Digital Fabrication as technician for industrial robots.
With the development of a simple and flexible communication between ABB industrial robots and higher-level systems (CAD, Python clients or others) I try to simplify and support the projects of the researchers.
