Many of the developments stemmed from liquid analysis, level and flow measurement technologies

Endress+Hauser Group once again invested more than seven percent of sales in research and development in 2017. According to the company, many of the developments stemmed from liquid analysis, level and flow measurement technologies.

In 2017, Endress+Hauser had 261 patent filings, as well as 467 approved patents.

Endress+Hauser honored its innovators during this year's Innovator's Meeting held in Denzlingen near Freiburg, Germany.

“In order to strengthen the Group’s position in this competitive environment, we protect our innovations with patents in the very early stages,” said Endress+Hauser's corporate director marketing and technology Andreas Mayr. Endress+Hauser introduced 57 new products to the market last year, including the self-calibrating iTHERM TrustSens thermometer and the Promass Q.

Apart from the extensive research and development activities, close cooperation with select universities and research institutes is another factor that helps the Endress+Hauser Group. The company also established a sensor automation lab on the campus of the University of Freiburg, Germany, where a team of scientists, researchers and developers will be tasked with creating innovative sensor technologies for the Group.

Endress+Hauser supports employees who make significant contributions to a patent filing and invite them to an annual Innovators’ Meeting. Patents with particularly high business impact are recognized with special awards. This year’s event was held in mid-April in Denzlingen near Freiburg, Germany.
