Get to know us

NEXTSENSE's success is founded on our employees' knowledge, commitment and happiness.

Development

Innovative
solutions

We need innovative solutions every day so that we never stand still. Without our software and hardware specialists and our technology developers, we would probably still be tinkering with our patented measurement technology in our founders' attic.

Production

Experienced
hands

We build our measuring systems with meticulous attention to detail in these, to us, sacred halls. This is where experienced hands calibrate and test our optical systems and produce prototypes of the next global first.

Sales & Marketing

Ingenious
solutions

We recognized early on that is not enough to simply have the best technology. The most brilliant idea is useless if it is unfamiliar to the market and the customer has different idea of what a solution might look like.

Service

Outstanding
Support

Whether on the phone, in front of a PC or on-site with the customer: Our service technicians and support staff make every effort to make the installation of our large-scale facilities as smooth as possible and promptly answer any questions about our portable systems.

Back office

Always there
for everyone

Our dedicated staff in this area keep all the gear wheels spinning. On top of managing purchases, accounting and travel arrangements, they give a warm welcome to every customer and supplier at the reception.

HISTORY
Nachrichten Formular Icon

How it all began

It all started with one small idea, three central laser lines and four technicians full of dreams. A history full of sudden inspiration, successes, setbacks, new attempts and perseverance takes its course.

2006
ORIGIN OF AN IDEA

While still working for the Joanneum Research institute, our four founders solved the big problem of the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB). With our handheld measurement device, it was possible to evaluate railway vehicle wheel wear without error-prone physical contact for the first time.

2007
FOUNDING OF NEXTSENSE

The idea of CALIPRI – the evolution of the English word "caliper" (or sliding gage), which flies around the wheel profile like a "Kolibri", the German word for a humming bird – impressed the jury at the Styrian Business Promotion Agency (SFG) at the Fast Forward Awards and resulted in the start-up capital for the spin-off company.

2008
CERTIFIED AND SUCCESSFUL

Quality is mandatory. That is why we became ISO 9001 certified early on. In this year, we also sold the first CALIPRI as an independent company – to ÖBB TS. In fact, the profit was immediately put towards a coffee machine – which works to this day.

2009
CALIPRI FOR CARS

After a press release, the first automotive manufacturer recognized the diverse applications of our technology. Since then, a CALIPRI device for gap measurements has improved the appearance and background noise of the chassis produced by Magna Steyr in Graz.

2010
SUCCESS AT INNOTRANS

A difficult year for us. Years of investing in our technology have left their mark. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: At the leading international trade fair for railway technology, InnoTrans 2010, the interest in our products was so high that we almost had problems keeping up with deliveries.

2011
WE BREAK EVEN

This year we broke even for the first time and were delighted to receive the order for the first stationary CALIPRI gap measuring system. For the premium automotive manufacturer Daimler, exact gap measurements were an important mark of quality even then.

2012
THE TEAM MOVES

We have really earned it. After years of working in a confined space, we moved into our own office building this year. We duly celebrated with our customers, longstanding partners and, of course, our families.

2013
NEXTSENSE GOES INTERNATIONAL

This year was characterized by internationalization and growth. On top of signing a global master agreement with a large German premium automotive manufacturer, we sold our 500th CALIPRI system to the remaining so far untouched continent.

2014
AWARD FOR EXPORT

It was an honor for us. The Austrian Federal Economic Chamber honored our export efforts even in difficult markets at the Export Award celebration in the MuseumsQuartier Wien in Vienna. In this year, we also presented a system for inspecting the surface finish of steel profiles while they are still red hot.

2015
CALIPRI MEASURES ROLLING PROFILES

More and more inquiries from foreign countries led to the expansion of our international sales partner network. For our automotive customers, we especially benefited from the worldwide partnership with ASI Datamyte. In addition, we celebrated the world debut of the first portable profile measurement device for steel profiles.

2016
FUNDING FOR CALIPRI PRIME

Wow! We were the only Austrian company to be awarded funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 program. With this boost, we founded our first branch office (Atlanta, USA) and presented the first wireless profile measurement device from NEXTSENSE to the world.

2017
WE CONTINUE TO GROW

From four to 70 in 10 years. We celebrated our 10th anniversary with our 70 employees, a big cake and in good spirits. But what will the future hold? Drones that measure railway vehicle wheels? A cashless CALIPRI supermarket? Let's wait and see!
