Fabmatics GmbH (formerly HAP GmbH Dresden)

Fabmatics develops intelligent automation solutions for customers active in high-tech industries and helps to make their production logistics safer, faster and more efficient.

The Fabmatics GmbH with head office in Dresden is an experienced specialist for the automation of material flows and handling processes in semiconductor factories, semiconductor process plants and other high-tech production environments.

Founded in 1991, the company has been successfully implementing customer-specific automation projects in the semiconductor industry for more than 25 years. This results in a strong market position, especially in the modernization of 200-millimeter semiconductor factories worldwide.

The range of services comprises a modular product range consisting of hardware and software for the automation of handling, transport and storage processes as well as solutions for product identification and localization. The range is supplemented by consulting and development services from the company’s own R&D department for the realisation of customer-specific solutions with a unique depth of individualisation and maximum functional reliability. Thus the Fabmatics GmbH has the singular authority to offer comprehensive solutions within the range of the material flow automation for the employment under pure space conditions from a hand.

The Fabmatics GmbH, including its subsidiary Fabmatics the USA Inc. in Sandy (Utah), is world-wide active and employs at present approximately 200 employees. Heinz Martin Esser and Dr. Roland Giesen are managing directors. The Fabmatics GmbH is member in the world-wide industry federation SEMI, in the high technology network silicone Saxony registered association and in the AND automation network Dresden.


Fabmatics (formerly HAP) intends to implement and test pilot demonstrators in an industrial application. In this case the industrial application is the power conversion in an AGV, which is used among others in semiconductor fabs for the local transport and the un-/ loading of lots. As the energy is taken from batteries, a reduction of power consumption results in an increased productive time and thus an economic advantage.

Key Contribution:

Fabmatic's (formerly HAP) key contributions are the already existing AGV system platform, together with its R&D and laboratory infrastructure. The AGV is the ideal base for the improvements and needed application tests within this project.
