Andreas Baldinger


After 5 years of industrial informatics in technical high school and 1 year of military service, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics/Robotics from the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Vienna. Afterwards, I reoriented and wanted to strengthen my basic technical knowledge at the Technical University of Vienna. Following a need to catch up in the Bachelor's program in electrical engineering, I graduated with a Master of Science in Automation and Control.

During my study, I started to work in the research group V4R (Vision for Robotics), where I gained a lot of experience in constructing and building assistive robots. Out of this research group, together with three fellows, we founded Blue Danube Robotics GmbH. After 9 short years, I landed where I am today: CEO of our company, working hard at making the production of the future a reality.

It was very important for me to become a certified machinery safety expert because I wanted to stay at the forefront of safety technology and because I wanted to be able to consult all customers perfectly. It is also essential for me to be a role model internally and externally.

For us at AIRSKIN, the safety of machines and systems is one of many ingredients to ensure a fenceless productive Industry. Because safety is not everything, but without safety, all is for nothing.

With our current push towards a higher density of CMSEs in our team, I expect a strengthening of our position as experts for fenceless, open, and flexible production layouts. At AIRSKIN, productive fenceless manufacturing is not one topic of many but the main one, and it has been like this every day for the last 9 years for our 28 expert employees.

Exactly here, the PILZ CMSE certification helps us to enrich our broad internal training program called “AIRSKIN Levels”. This is the best way to bring our internal knowledge to the customers – where it is needed.

The future is fenceless, and the CMSE certification enables us to realize it.
