Major goal combines benefit and optimization

From idea to finalization: From construction projects visible from the outside, such as the modern reception area with inviting seating, to the covered parking areas with photovoltaic system, to the modern Mogatec testing center - a lot has changed within the last 2 years. Construction projects inside the company complex were not neglected either.

What primarily serves to expand the storage area will be combined with modern working conditions and sustainable power generation at Mogatec company: with the start of construction of the new logistics building in April 2021, we are once again a step closer to realizing the investment package.

The new logistics building is scheduled for completion at the end of 2021, extending the usable area by 1,100m².

Additional loading ramps will then be available not only for large trucks, but a ramp specially designed for small vans from regional suppliers will also be added to the goods receiving area. With the construction of the logistics building, efficiently designed loading ramps and an expanded goods receiving zone, we are achieving a reduction in loading times - a benefit for both employees and suppliers. The combination of modern technology and more space eases workflows and at the same time reduces the risk of accidents. A photovoltaic system on the roof of the logistics building gives us the opportunity to generate energy from solar power and feed it into our own power supply.


Team Biathlon 2023

Together. With energy. To the top!

Sports are spontaneous, emotional, exciting and really inspire everyone. And so we put our love of sports into the realm of sponsorship. With our commitment as the main sponsor for the Team Biathlon 2023, we support young athletes and accompany them on their way to success.

This is something we do primarily out of conviction and enthusiasm, and in so doing we continue to build up our dynamic image in the region.

We are happy to be able to contribute to the promotion of young talents and wish the athletes a healthy preparation for their season highlights and in particular for the upcoming highlight - the Biathlon World Championships in Oberhof 2023!


 

Together we are strong

Together, we have overcome the year 2020. 
At the beginning of the new year, we would like to take a moment and look back at what we would not have achieved without your help.

Together we are strong. Particularly in 2020, we could feel the truth of these words.
Despite the global changes, we were able to maintain job security for our employees. 
We were able to give our suppliers and service providers a perspective despite the fact that they have lost business in many areas. 
We also helped our customers fulfill their delivery obligations and satisfy their customer needs. 
All this was possible only because we acted together!
Many thanks for this!

The many and varied prospects of the new year are reason enough to optimistically look forward to the still young year.
We wish that you stay (or become) healthy, experience many beautiful things, achieve the goals you have set for yourself and enjoy every day of your life.
 

Over the years, certifications impressively demonstrate the first-class level of our services as a quality seal and prove the extensive know-how of our company.

The Donors' Association for the Promotion of Sciences and Humanities in Germany (Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft e.V.) has recently rewarded our commitment to research and development with the "Innovative through research" seal.

"The Stifterverband (Donors' Association) is one of the largest private science donors in Germany. In addition to supporting young scientists and maintaining excellent universities and top-level research, it is also responsible for examining and evaluating the German research and innovation system. How much does industry invest in research and development in Germany? What effects does this have on the sustainability of this country? These questions are the focus of the R&D survey that is annually conducted by the Science Statistics Section of the Stifterverband on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research."*

Motor test stand

Driving forces under test

Drive systems are literally the driving forces for providing mechanical kinetic energy. This makes the effectiveness and efficiency of drive motors  increasingly important.

Since the latest drive technologies become more and more sophisticated, the demands on measuring and testing systems for quality control and further development of devices are growing. These systems are the basis for manufacturing products of high quality and performance and enable development activities at the earliest possible stage.
 

Extremely durable

Modern DC motors (brushless DC motors) demonstrate their power, precision and robustness in various ranges of MOGATEC garden equipment. But before the motors with their essential components such as gears, sensors and controllers get to the customer, they have to endure a lot on a test stand.

Whether under continuous load in the high or low temperature range, whether with hard impacts or wetness: our drive systems are extremely durable.
 

Knowledge under test

MOGATEC has been using various test stands for validation and verification of certain assemblies for quite some time now. 

The test stand equipment used for checking individual components and the complete system is usually individually programmed and unique. In addition to the "normal" daily business, a complete test stand has been developed in the MOGATEC department "Functional Development" in order to be able to carry out dynamic tests on complex DC motors during series production. This test stand is designed in such a way that in the future complete load characteristics for DC motors can be newly created or compared with data sheets of the manufacturers.

In a weekly cycle, battery-powered garden tools with a defined load characteristic undergo an endurance test.
 

Talent meets the future at the new testing centre

One of our students enthusiastically faced the challenges of building up the capacities in our new testing center: Lukas Graubner, student of electrical engineering in the field of automation technology at the University of Cooperative Education in Bautzen, has developed a test stand with intuitively operated test software in order to generate characteristic properties of the test object and to record and evaluate measured values.

"In the Technical Department of MOGATEC, I quickly became part of the team and was able to try out what I had learned and prove myself in practice. I was given various test assignments and was involved in development projects. The infrastructure for sustainable, instructive work was in place and even as a student I had a certain responsibility for my projects and a say in the team," says Lukas Graubner.
