Hofmann & Stirner Zuführsysteme GmbH, a Munich, Germany-based provider of a digitally optimized feeding system, raised nearly €1m in funding.
Backers included HTGF and a business angel.
The company is using the funds to continue to develop the system.
Founded by Daniel Hofmann and Florian Stirner in May 2016, Hofmann & Stirner provides a digitally optimized feeding system which offers customers a long-term platform for all their current and future feeding tasks.
The company takes into account both hard- and software. A bundle of specialized software modules is used to represent relevant physical aspects of their own real feeding system – the ROTU – in the digital world. Every new ROTU is thereby developed using this digital twin and becomes part of database used for training deep neuronal networks which, in a first step, help the engineer to choose a suitable feeding system and in the next step design the feeding system completely by themselves.
