First Makeathon 2019.







Guided by the slogan “#justdoit – improve (y)our workplace through digitization”, RATIONAL organized the first Makeathon from the 20th to the 21st of September at the Innovationlab “Industrial Makerspace” in Landsberg.

Within these days, six teams contributed their own ideas regarding digitization at RATIONAL and developed the first series of prototypes. Accompanied by a lot of creativity and innovative spirit, our colleagues thought, tinkered and programmed diligently - and in the end there was one winner among many, very good results: within the given 24 hours, the team “Team-in-Team” programmed a collaborating robot and coupled it with a turntable and the necessary measuring instruments. With the help of this robot, repeated measurements can now be carried out automatically.

The winners were awarded a voucher for a RATIONAL CookingEvent for the entire team and their company. The implementation of the individual ideas is now being checked in the corresponding processes. “We will try to implement the developed prototypes into our daily business life.”, confirmed CTO Peter Wiedemann the outstanding results. The conclusion of the organizing team was positive: “It is simply great what can happen in such a short time and the commitment shown by every participant was amazing!”.

The next Makeathon is scheduled for October 2020 – when it will again be #justdoit. Then, also with external participation.
