A cobot or collaborative robot is a robot that is intended to work together with people in a common working environment

Cobots – Collaborative Robots

A cobot or collaborative robot is a robot that is intended to work together with people in a common working environment. A cobot therefore differs from other robots, which are designed to operate independently or with limited guidance.

LabVIEW is system software for applications that require testing, measurement and control with quick access to hardware and data insights.


LabVIEW is system software for applications that require testing, measurement and control with quick access to hardware and data insights. LabVIEW provides a graphical programming approach that allows you to visualize every aspect of your application, including hardware configuration, metrics and debugging.

Software for automation, including operating systems and sorting systems

Software & IT

Industrial automation is not just about machines. Equally important is the operating software; the algorithms, the clear and easy-to-use screens, communication with the ERP or WMS and of course the control of the machine itself by means of a PLC.

Hexapole has almost 25 years of experience in building sorting software. Our Standard Sorting Software consists of a solid basis on which customer-specific modules can be placed. In addition to the Sorting Software (PC), Hexapole also supplies the complete machine control of the sorting machine itself (PLC).

PLC Engineering

In the industrial sector machines usually are controlled with PLCs, Programmable Logic Controllers. This makes these electronic devices with a microprocessor an important part of the daily routine. Indispensable, actually. When capacity issues occur or there is a lack of specific knowledge, we as experts in the area of industrial automation come into play.
Hexapole can provide both the PLC and the customer-written software for your company. By doing so, we ensure that the machines, and therefore the entire production process, operates optimally. Moreover, we can also integrate the PLC systems in a complete solution with SCADA, HMI and a database application.

Our experts

Programming all kinds of different types of PLCs is a daily routine for our PLC programmers. These very important devices, therefore, hold no secrets for the experts of Hexapole. Each and every one of them have extensive experience with, amongst others, working with Siemens, Allen Bradley, Beckhoff and B&R. PLCs generally also communicate with systems such as database applications, Remote I/O, sensors, cameras, barcode systems and other. Our PLC programmers, therefore, also create reliable connections, partly thanks to years of experience with different systems including Ethernet, EtherCAT, Profibus, Profinet, Modbus, CANbus and RS 232/485.
