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
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.

When I was young, and our household appliances had problems, my father always asked me to help him repair them. This had a deep impact on me that led to a strong interest in machinery. Because of this, I choose Mechanical Engineering and Automation as my major. I like to learn and prefer to apply what I have learned. My work is never boring. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work in a team where I am continuously involved in both research and the development of new ideas. Life is a journey and Kollmorgen gives me the platform to continuously develop.
As an application engineer, I need to help customers solve technical problems, often by myself. However, I am never alone when dealing with a customer. I know that no matter where I am, my colleagues at Kollmorgen will do their best to support me. I act as a communication link between China and Sweden. In this role, it is important for me to clearly explain the Chinese customer’s needs to my Swedish colleagues. This is a very important part of my work. Although there are cultural differences between China and Sweden, my colleagues in Sweden are very professional. They take pride in ensuring that they understand the Chinese market and customer needs. This requires a deep knowledge of our customer’s products and customization requirements.
At present, we are in a phase of rapid development with a big focus on the automation industry. I am confident that Kollmorgen’s products and technology are well suited for the challenges that the Chinese market has to offer. I believe Kollmorgen has a very bright future in the Chinese market.

When you find yourself explaining complex software details to your non-tech friends, and they all look like giant question marks, then you know you are a full-blood techie. Fortunately, around here, I am not alone!
I develop and upgrade systems for optimum performance through continuous iterations. The best thing about this place is that things are developing all the time. Literally, whatever code we write, it directly shows up in the real world, immediately impacting our test vehicles’ behavior. That’s pretty cool! And I can’t imagine another workplace with this many nice and competent colleagues! I’ve been here a long time now, and I’m planning on staying.
