Our branches

Proud to be part of
next level mobility


Within the Automotive sector, we offer tier-one design & contract manufacturing for OEM companies and printing & assembly machines under the brand name Grauel.

We'd like to shed some light on the following cases, where we proudly show some of our work within the Automotive branche with our customers Lumileds and BOSCH.

Our Customer Lumileds

Our Solution
During this project, we completed the cutting, bending, assembly, welding and laser engraving of LED bulbs. Not only did we automate this complex process into a perfectly balanced symphony, but we also made the production line fully flexible. On top of that all the products are thoroughly screened by our vision applications. Every single product is fully trackable and traceable, which makes problem-solving as quick and easy as possible. In this way, our technology and knowledge play a crucial part in the safety of your drive home! We are proud to be part of something great.

Our Customer BOSCH Tilburg

Our Solution
Together with our Customer BOSCH Tilburg, we've realised and automated the assembly and testing of the core parts used in transmission gear boxes.

By understanding, contributing and working with customers (like BOSCH Tilburg) within the Automotive sector, AAE contributes to the safety and comfort of your drive home. We also play a crucial part in expanding the capabilities of sustainable driving. We are proud to be part of something great!

For the last 20 years AAE is a preferred partner in Production Automation demands for Bosch Transmission Technology.

Moreover, AAE’s global approach makes them a suitable partner as they are able to install the equipment in our factories worldwide.

Development & Engineering

The mechanical engineers within our engineering department develop tooling for manufacturing complex parts and assemblies. Our system engineers translate the product requirements into system development specifications for functional and dedicated qualification tools. Our goal is to have all AAE products comply with the specifications our customers require.

Automation Platforms

We provide turnkey, custom-made printing and assembly automations under the brandname Grauel. By offering various automation platforms, Continuous Motion (CMS), Indexing Motion System (IMS) and Flexible Motion System (FMS), we are able to provide our customers with tailor fit solutions.

  • Linear indexing
    This platform offers you both great operator accessibility and a small footprint (LCS).
  • Round indexing
    If the number of automation processes is limited, we apply round indexing tables.
  • Flexible Motion System
    The Flexible Motion System does what it says: it guarantees maximum flexibility! The key in FMS is the fact that the product carriers are independently controlled, which enables processing of different cycle times within one machine.

Product Lifecycle

After the validation of the product design, industrialisation of the manufacturing process is key to securing continuous delivery of our customers' products.



All of our competences


After installation, your machine is in the safe hands of our service department. We support you with periodic operator training, maintenance and improvements or spare parts. We keep a log of all machines. In our feasibility centre, we can simulate your process and create product print samples for you.

I do everything to enable our customers to reach their objectives with our machines, so they look back with satisfaction to their collaboration with AAE.
