Who we are

The benchmark
in additive manufacturing

Company

Expertise and Values

Bernstein™ is a leading 3D printing agency based in Linz, Austria. The innovative company has positioned itself as the first point of reference for additive manufacturing based on the experience of more than 40 years of industrial production of high-end products and the professional competence of the father-son team, Klaus and Jakob Schmied. The focus is on development and serial production of fully functional components for industrial applications.

AIRSKIN®
Project

The perfect synergy. Additive Manufacturing and Robotics.

Bernstein™ and Blue Danube Robotics

In industrial production, the collaboration between human beings and robots is becoming more and more important. AIRSKIN® sets new standards here. It is the first system of its kind that allows people to safely reside in the immediate proximity of robotic arms and work with them.

The soft 3D printed skin of AIRSKIN® was developed in intensive and month-long collaboration between Blue Danube Robotics and Bernstein™. 
AIRSKIN® has succeeded in establishing a benchmark in additive manufacturing for industrial applications.

AIRSKIN®
Additive Manufacturing

The use of additive manufacturing offers decisive advantages.

AIRSKIN® can be produced from lot size 1 to larger series. This allows the equipment of individual robots as well as of entire production lines.
The system requires a highly complex component geometry, in which 3D printing can utilize its advantages fully.
Blue Danube Robotics is an innovative company that puts emphasis on the continuous development of AIRSKIN®. The use of additive production meets this high demand.

AIRSKIN®
Process Depth

The complex development and continuous optimization of AIRSKIN® requires a holistic consideration of additive manufacturing. In addition to the key process, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), this also includes the upstream and downstream processes such as 3D printing specific design, design optimization and finishing.

AIRSKIN®
Collaboration / Cooperation

The enthusiasm for new technological possibilities, a lot of heart blood and profound technical know-how are the cornerstones of our common path. In Bernstein™ we have found a partner who is ready to push the boundaries of additive manufacturing with us. The best proof is AIRSKIN®!

Production

For the serial production of AIRSKIN® laser sintering systems have been optimized in cooperation with the LSS engineers. Thanks to the adaptations, they meet the high demands on size accuracy, efficiency and costs.

AIRSKIN®
Material

Together with experts from the chemical company Lehmann & Voss, a special material based on TPU was developed to give the cover of AIRSKIN® ideal properties (flexible, long-lasting, resistant to environmental influences).

The use of a coating adapted to the material’s needs achieves the desired optical and haptic properties. The functionality of the components is thereby further improved.
