Kollmorgen is a key player in the Industry 4.0 revolution with solutions for robotics and automated guided vehicles with 2,000 people employed worldwide. Our infrastructure, intellectual knowledge, passion and experience are testament to our pursuit of motion excellence. And because of our heritage of customization, we see opportunities, not obstacles.

Why Work for Us?

More than five decades ago, Kollmorgen developed the direct drive technology that enables some of today’s most remarkably innovative machines.

We helped engineers build the first self-contained artificial heart. Our end-to-end onsite engineering resulted in China’s first air-jet loom for manufacturing, and we’ve been a pioneer in hybrid motor technology for transportation for two decades.

We work together to win together.

Meet our People

Louise Rudbäck

I’m fascinated by psychology, and specifically how different people perceive reality differently. From an early age, I was also passionate about drawing and composition. So UX Design as a profession became the natural path for me to follow.

Designing the user experience for AGV and Mobile Robot applications is challenging and exiting. These are highly complex products, and the aim is to make the interface as easy to understand and use as possible. A lot of my work consists of interpreting our end-users’ perception, experimenting with new UX-prototypes, gathering behavioral input, and iterating to further improve and simplify our products. I’m the bridge between humans and technology, with the vision of making robots our best friends.

What I really value with Kollmorgen, is the openness and creativity. From the very beginning you’re heavily involved and responsible for the output of the final product. This industry is also really booming, which makes it even more exciting.

Since I started at Kollmorgen I’ve been traveling around the world installing our systems at clients and end users’ locations. It’s been a diverse and interesting job where one’s problem solving skills are constantly challenged. Currently I’m aspiring to broaden my repertoire within the field of software engineering, with the ambition to dig deeper into the core of our AGV platform and help make it even better.

As well as learning new skills at work I enjoy challenging myself physically. On my trips I’ve often joined local associations for some added exercise and cultural exchange; practicing wrestling in Atlanta, Thai boxing in Lausanne or Brazilian jiu-jitsu in Tokyo are some highlights. Back at the office me and some colleagues often go for swims or runs together, and in summer time it’s perfect with a beautiful lake close by for joint swimrun events in the morning or during lunch breaks.

When I was 5 years old I broke a remote control just to understand how it worked. That pretty much explains why I am here today! Not that I like to break things, but rather because I am naturally curious about how things work. I simulate, analyze and do issue fixing. Testing and perfecting algorithms is key to an efficient system. A lot of my time is also spent in research, such as reviewing science articles to ensure our work is on the right path. I get a lot of freedom to grow and the culture here is so friendly. It’s great to be working with people that are so open and where the level of talent is so high.
