In former times, Diehl developed mechanical calculating machines into electronic computers, mechanical stove timers into electronic stove timers and the mechanical watch into a radio-controlled watch. Change has been a rule rather than an exception in more than 100 years of company history, especially in recent times:
Digitalization in the company not only drives efficiency increases in administration and production but also the development of new products and helps set up new business models.
Experts at Diehl deal with data analytics, for example, to further optimize production or to provide predictive maintenance for system components.
Diehl Aviation is one of the first companies in aviation to use 3D printing for the industrial production of series components for the aircraft cabin.
In addition, young companies bring knowledge into our corporate divisions via Diehl Ventures.
