A start-up with experience: the best of both worlds.

With Optimate you get both. Visionary thinking and decades of experience. Advanced machine learning and human know-how.

We’re always on the lookout for optimization.

With TRUMPF as our parent company, the leader in sheet metal processing, we see it as our responsibility to deliver excellence - always looking for the optimum. In a world of rigid product development, we believe in the power of constantly better-thought solutions.


Optimate milestones.

2020 - Start-up

In August 2020, we got Optimate started. The young company was spun off as an independent limited liability company.

2021 – Go-Live

We picked up speed. In February 2021, the first Optimate services were made available. In October, the world premiere of our patented prototype “Automated Optimization” followed.

2022 - Follow-up financing

Our parent company TRUMPF continues to believe in us and invested 3.2 million euros in April 2022 to pursue our developments.


Our next steps: Go-live of “Automated Optimization”, CAD integration, analysis of assemblies, recognition of forming and much more.
