We have been living Industry 4.0 since 1995

When Manfred Radtke founded inray Industriesoftware GmbH in 1995, electronic and computer development were well on their way. The spirit of the times called for connectivity and data communication in industry, thereby pointing out the path to success. After many successful individual programs for plant communication, it soon became clear that individual software was not the ultimate solution to the lack of digitisation seen in industry. In 1999, Sören Rose, who has been managing director for many years now, joined the company and the search for uniform ways to simplify and standardise industrial data communications began.

The OPC Foundation was also launched in the mid-nineties, aiming to create the worldwide communication standard. OPC defines a standardised means of accessing controllers and machines. This naturally played out to the advantage of inray and the steep success story took its course. Standard products were developed, which took advantage of the extensive communication possibilities of OPC and thereby distributed information from the production line to the entire company. Many a customer had a cheerful twinkle in their eye as the production process “became transparent”.

This triumphant advance of digitisation in production has been the central theme at inray from the very beginning. More than a quarter of a century has gone by in the meantime, and inray has more than 60 loyal employees and is growing rapidly.

Today we know that we are working on nothing less than the next industrial revolution. Our motto is our passion: “Making manufacturing transparent!”

Our products

The OPC Router is the central communication platform for your industrial projects. Our software connects a wide range of different OT and IT systems via drag & drop – whether PLCs, controllers, printers, RFID and barcode systems or database, cloud, SAP and other ERP and office systems.

The world’s leading OPC server KEPServerEX, made by Kepware, connects devices and applications, from the controls of the manufacturing plant to enterprise information systems. With drivers for more than 160 different controllers, it provides all the options you need to implement your OPC Classic/DA and OPC UA networking, as well as Industry 4.0.

The Factory Application Server FAS is our lean, web-based software for HMI/SCADA and MES applications. It can be used on all HTML5-based systems.

Our services

Our main services include consultancy, planning, implementation and training. Project development in the BDE/MES/lab area is our daily business. We develop your customised applications based on our own software products.

The structures that already exist in your company form part of the individual concept for your project. We turn your project into a reality using individual connection concepts and integrate your systems and peripherals using standard interfaces. Extensive project coordination is made possible by working together with other suppliers and service providers. We support you on site while our software is commissioned to ensure a smooth start, and our support team remains available to you afterwards at all times. New acquisition channels, applications and new devices can be added at any time to extend your project.
