Our product reduces scrap in industrial production processes. For this, we developed a fully automatic closed-loop control system for sheet metal forming processes, which can be attached to new builds and existing tools. For the unique and patented loop control we use sensors and actuators which are combined by an intelligent controller software. The secret behind is not only the software however, but also the positioning of the sensors and actuators within the forming tool. With a sophisticated numerical simulation strategy which takes several natural process variations into account the forming process is analysed and relevant positions are specified. This method secures sensor data with the highest information content possible. Of course, we make those data visible in our own Cloud environment and evaluable for the customer, who gets the deepest insight in their forming processes.

2021-09-14: Preparation of official Launch of Draw.Control
We will present the ready-to-use
product to the general public for the
first time at the BlechExpo
international trade show in Stuttgart
in October. The product will be
available on the market in early 2022.
Initially, we plan to use the product
for pilot customers and projects in
the automotive sector.

2021-02-18: Founding of iLARIZ
At the beginning of 2021, the new
company iLARIZ was founded in
Stuttgart, in which the product,
process and team intelligence is now
bundled together with all property

The target group for Draw.Control is
all production companies in the sheet
metal processing industry from a
wide range of sectors. The largest
customers for sheet metal
components have always included
the automotive industry in the areas
of body construction, drives and
interiors. We also address the
household appliance, packaging and
furniture industries. The market is
strongly international and globally
distributed. The largest sheet metal
part producers and toolmakers are
located in Germany - mainly in
Baden-Württemberg - as well as in
China, the USA, Japan and South
Korea. Accordingly, these are the
target markets for iLARIZ and our
technology innovation.

2020-10-01: Patent of DRAW.CONTROL granted
Prototype construction, technology
development, and initial laboratory
testing were completed. The initial
results are overwhelming: up to 50%
reduction in scrap rates in laboratory
testing. At the same time, the
underlying patent was finally

2017-06-01: Idea of Draw.Control
Already in 2017, the idea of a fully
automatic process control for deep
drawing processes was born and a
patent application was filed. Two of
the founders have been working on
the implementation of the idea since
