Years on the market
Products developed


Since its foundation, Deutsche Mechatronics GmbH has grown to become one of the major industrial employers in the Rhineland region of southern NRW. We are proud to have ensured the competitive edge of our international customers with our complex mechatronic systems for decades.

The history of Deutsche Mechatronics GmbH in Mechernich begins in 1947, when Elektrizitäts AG former W. Lahmeyer & Co. acquires a repair shop for transformers. At that time, 50 employees generated annual sales of the equivalent of 500,000 euros.

In the 60’s compact transformer stations are developed and manufactured. 50,000 units delivered by the year 2000. They are still in use around the world today.

In 1985, the technical service is added. The company also specializes in automation and control technology.

About ten years later, the entry into process technology with the development and production of OEM modules, such as dryer inserts for sheet-fed offset printing or tool grinding machines, marked a new chapter in the company’s history.

A leap in quality and effectiveness is achieved in 1998 with the introduction of the in-house development VQC (Visual Quality Control) – an intelligent image processing system. All sheet metal blanks can be measured to an accuracy of ±0.03 mm within a very short time directly in the production area and in the immediate vicinity of the processing machines with the aid of a VQC.

The company, which has since been spun off from Lahmeyer AG and renamed RWE Mechatronics GmbH, becomes Deutsche Mechatronics GmbH and continues to grow rapidly as a partner and service provider for OEM solutions.

Opening of a branch of Deutsche Mechatronics GmbH in China. The VQC (Visual Quality Control) system is now produced “local to local” on site for the Chinese market.
