"Summer hike" in the Schmiedefeld Biosphere Reserve
This year's hiking day took us around Schmiedefeld and Vesser. With the nature and landscape guide Mrs. Brunhilde Schumacher we undertook the hike "From water to iron". During the hike we received a lot of information about the water, about native plants and their possible uses, about iron mining and the biosphere reserve. Finally, we went underground again, to the visitor mine "Schwarze Crux". Our thanks go to Mrs. Schumacher and the Thuringian Forest Biosphere Reserve for the informative day.
"Pre-Christmas tree planting campaign of Zwerrenz Automatisierungstechnik GmbH"
The Thuringia Forest is facing major challenges in times of climate change. Higher temperatures, changed precipitation conditions and increasing weather extremes also requier measures to stabilise our forests in Thuringia. With this mind, we planted about 60 silver firs near Oberhof on 19. November in cooperation with teh Thuringia Forestry Office to support the local forest development. The action was a complete success and was fund for everyone involved. Wie would like to thank the Thuringia Forestry Office for their active support on this day.

Innovative tiling robot FER*Tig*er in use as a prototpy
In addition to our day-to-day customer tasks, we were also able to realize an innovative research project. Together with our network an by promoting the BMWi, we were able to develop a new tile laying robot an demonstrate it in 2019 with great interest.
The finisher lays heavy floor tiles on a large area and thus quickly an accurateky takes over the heavy physical arbeti of laying the tiles on large areas. The tiles are fed automatically, qualitatively checked for damage and laid with high accuracy via a camera system. The finisher can proceed independently in the room an lay the tiles.
The Prototyp is currently in the testing phase at the europawide company Fliesen Unger as a reference and test costumer. The robot´s lunch is schedulded for 2021.
