History.

 

 

metec Ingenieur was founded to produce and develop further the first small electromagnetic Braille cell, which had been invented at the Institute of Design and Production in Precision Engineering of Stuttgart University.

 

 

metec already sold the first pocket calculators with a Braille display. This was the start of the "electronic age" for the Blind.

 

 

The market was slowly growing, so the second generation of electromagnetic Braille cells, which were considerably smaller and cheaper, was developed. These cells were assembled into the first electronic Braille lines, which served as screen for the Blind thus enabling them to get access to computers

 

A new technology to drive the Braille cells was introduced. It was based on piezo actuators.

 

 

metec GmbH was transformed into metec AG, a share holding company, thus creating the financial possibilities for growth oriented activities.  

 

metec celebrates its 40th anniversary.

 

metec AG, as a leading manufacturer of Braille lines and other products in the field of Braille and rehab technology, has 27 employees. metec AG supplies customers throughout the world.
