We are happy to celebrate with MedAustron! The clinic has joined the ranks of only six centers worldwide that can combat tumors with both protons and carbon ions. Congratulations for the achievment of this big milestone! Our robotic exacure system is responsible for the safe patient positioning with sub-milimeter accuracy.
Thanks to KUKA for this great video! Together with the ICD Stuttgart we used two KUKA KR 500 FORTEC robots to manufacture innovative lightweight wood modules for the BUGA pavillon in Heilbronn.
The BUGA Wood Pavilion celebrates a new approach to digital timber construction.
Embedded in the wavelike landscape of the Bundesgartenschau grounds, the BUGA Fibre Pavilion offers visitors an astounding architectural experience and a glimpse of future construction.
Before the Easter holidays we presented BEC at the „TIC Career Day“ fair at the University of Reutlingen and on the “Bonding” fair at the University of Stuttgart to discover new talents for our innovativ student projects. The focus of our current topics relates to fields such as mechatronics, medical technology, computer science and software engineering.
In October 2018 BEC completed the first project in Hollywood for the new TV show MENTAL SAMURAI, a thrilling new competition series for FOX that pushes every aspect of human intelligence and mental agility. Hosted and produced by Rob Lowe, the show is the first-ever obstacle course...for the mind.
Are you ready to jump on a crazy ride, think outside the box, experience unlimited dimensions? Then it's time to check out the BEC Coaster! We developed a brand new seat system that allows 3 passengers to take a ride with the KUKA KR600 passenger robot!
The BEC exacure installation at the Australian Synchrotron on Channel 9 News! In Melbourne our robotic patient positioning system (KUKA KR270) supports producing superior quality 3D images on breast cancer tissue samples. It involves a 12 second scan of the woman's breast which produces 1800 lose dose images to create a detailed 3D map of the breast.
We are very excited to collaborate with ICD / Institute for Computational Design and Construction | University of Stuttgart (icd.uni-stuttgart.de) on TIM - a mobile robotic timber construction platform. More to come soon!

Every two years, the robotics world meets at the Automatica Expo in Munich/Germany. BEC paticipated this year with exhibits at two booths. In addition to the two research projects RosyLerNT (robotic strength training) and RobExReha (robotics training for rehabilitation), also the new developed BEC Coaster was presented for the first time in Europe.
In cooperation with the leasing company JobRad, BEC GmbH has been offering its employees the opportunity to lease a bike or E-bike of their choice for 36 months. After this period, the employee has the option to buy the bike on favorable terms or to lease a new model. The leasing rates are settled directly via the monthly salary. Thanks to the preferential taxation, employees can save about 30 percent compared to a direct purchase.
On 18 April 2018 we presented our company for the first time at TIC Career Day at the Reutlingen University. The students were impressed by our unusual product portfolio and the possibilities of human-robot collaboration. To interested and committed students from the fields of mechanical engineering, medical technology, computer science, software engineering or comparable engineering sciences we offer the possibility to do a practical semester or thesis.
Neutron Therapeutics / Danvers, Massachusetts / USA
BEC supplies the patient positioning system with Siemens CT integration to Neutron Therapeutics in Helsinki. Neutron Therapeutics works on bringing Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) out of the realm of medical research and transform it into a widely available first-line cancer therapy. (BNCT) is a unique type of radiation therapy that enables treating locally invasive malignant tumors such as primary brain tumors and recurrent head and neck cancer.
In the RobExReha project, a robot-based rehabilitation system is developed for the precise diagnosis of existing abilities and the treatment of the upper extremities. The partial or complete paralysis of the arm after stroke severely restricts those concerned to everyday life and work.
What do an amusement park, a specialist hospital, and a bobsled training center have in common? For all of them, modern robots installed by BEC are an integral part of their operations. The dynamic robotics specialist from Southern Germany operates around the globe.
Regular physical training offers great potential in the prevention and therapy of degenerative diseases. It makes a decisive contribution to a healthy and self-determined life. Assistance systems, which motivate suitable for training and enable a safe, autonomous training, can provide meaningful support.
BEC GmbH ... has been our new company since August 15th 2017. We are looking forward to it, as in the 14 years that we have been with Buck Engineering & Consulting GmbH at our location in the Gartenstr. 11, 72764 Reutlingen, Germany there have been so many short forms for our company name – the shortest one is our new company name. ....
The jury of the VR Innovation Prize awarded BEC with the main prize 2017 for the development of a platform that allows the active control of robots by human movements.
BEC has worked alongside Kuka Robotics and Holovis to transform Kuka’s existing two-person KukaCoaster system into a four-person capacity mechatronic immersive and interactive solution ready for launch later in 2017. On the Asian Attraction Expo we launched the new seat system and the robotic VR experience at Asian Attractions Expo, booth 2038 (KUKA Robotics GmbH). www.bec-rides.com
Innovative and fast-growing companies are the driving force of the European economy in the 21st century. They generate jobs and sustain Europe’s competitiveness. The FT1000 lists the 1,000 companies in Europe that have achieved the highest percentage growth in revenues between 2012 and 2015. BEC reached position 75....
