About us

Since 1995 inno-plan GmbH and its sister companies inno-kom GmbH and inno-projekt GmbH have been your engineering partner for technological product development and product optimisation, from the first idea through the concept phase to prototypes and support in launching a product series. In addition, our experienced staff supports you and your company in your operational business to lighten your workload. Our specialists work both out of our extensively equipped technical offices and, if requested, on site supplementing your project team in order to bridge capacity bottlenecks or provide new, innovative impulses.

Our business success to date - and your future business success - require comprehensive foresight. Successful businesses cannot afford to wear blinkers. Our diverse industry know-how in the sectors Automotive, Household appliances, Medical technology, Machine engineering, Furniture supply, Electrical industry, Packaging technology and Aviation ensures that our work is always forward-looking and we never lose sight of the essentials.

The brand inno-plan represents efficient project implementation together with an uncomplicated execution. Our experiences enables us to rapidly familiarise ourselves with your internal processes, making effective and efficient support possible.

Legally precise contracts (labour leasing, service and employment contracts) give both parties reassurance through absolute legal security.


Looking at the world of inno-plan, you will occasionally encounter tangrams. This old Chinese principle of abstraction plays a central part in all our resources and measures.

A legend describes the origin of this tile-based game created in China in the 4th century (also known as the "seven boards of skill"):

According to this legend, a monk instructed his student to travel in order to paint the essence of the manifold beauty of the world on a single ceramic tile. Unfortunately, the tile broke into seven different pieces. The student was no longer able to put them back together to form the original square, despite trying for days. But in his attempts, he created a multitude of beautiful patterns and images.

In the end, the student understood: He did not have to travel the world to discover its beauty. He could simply find the beauty and diversity of the world in the tile, broken into seven parts.

This metaphor describes the way we work. In each project, we put the available pieces together to form the best solution, thereby creating new, internally perfect results which will amaze you.



A wide, intersectoral field of vision permits the lateral thinking we use to turn your requirements and visions into the ideal ideas and concepts.

Even early in the project phase we emphasise the technical and economic feasibility of our solutions in order to secure you a competitive advantage later on.

For cost and time reasons, simulations using various FEM tools have become a standard requirement for component development.

Theoretical analyses and inspections are part of inno-plans core competencies. In us you will find competent contact partners for tolerance studies, linear and non-linear calculations and numerous different simulations (Moldflow, drawing behaviour in sheet metal forming).

Kinematic and kinetic analyses of multi-body systems
Processing of data of all commonly used CAD systems using a direct or standard interface
Cross-linking using solid and shell structures of CAD models
Creation of input data for commonly used implicit and explicit FEM solvers
Linear FEM calculations; structural analyses, modal analyses, harmonic frequency analyses
Non-linear FEM calculations; analyses with non-linear material behaviour, e.g. for plastics, contact calculations, buckling calculation, service life calculation
Structural optimisation
Tolerance studies
Method planning and drawing simulations for sheet metal forming
Moldflow simulations


The construction and procurement of all manner of prototypes as a supporting instrument for systematic development is one of the 5 columns of performance in the history of inno-plan. inno-plan GmbH is distinguished by a time-tested and broad network of qualified specialists and suppliers in the fields of tool and die technology, special purpose machine engineering and prototype creation.

We also offer quick in-house creation of small prototypes with a high-quality level.

We can supply you with prototypes for design approvals, installation trials, tests and small batches, e.g. as

Stereolithography models, incl. vacuum casting tools and casts
Laser sintering parts made of different materials
CNC-milled parts (steel, aluminium, plastic, etc.)
Sheet metal items (edge flashings, bent parts, drawn parts)
Hybrid parts
Spray and die casting tools
Bending/punching and forming tools/dies

And for you, all of the above is available from one source.


In the context of its design competency, inno-plan offers various training courses for external and internal staff. These allow specialists to gather insights and be given personal instructions on processes practised by inno-plan users in day-to-day operation.
