Innovation process.
We design innovations within the team.

Development means for us interdisciplinary teamwork: from the pre-development to the volume production development to the start of production and even the downstream volume production support. From conventional mechanical engineering to software development, from food technology to CFD simulation - we all work together on finding a solution.

We take an interdisciplinary approach, adopting direct decision paths, entrepreneurial scope and a result that convinces our customers.

  • Product development
  • Basic research
  • Application research and development
  • Laboratory and prototype design

Technology that does more.
The secret to our success: Innovation.

RATIONAL counteracts an increase in competition, price dumping and lower margins by deploying an effective strategy: Innovation! This means: We develop innovations that deliver maximum added customer value to increase demand. This is why we have developed four intelligent functions for our SelfCookingCenter®:

    - Simplicity through cooking intelligence -
  • iLevelControl
    - Intelligent mixed loads -
  • HiDensityControl®
    - Precision for exceptional quality -
