Frank Abitzsch passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on June 06, 2022. The news of his sudden death has shaken us deeply.


One year has passed now and still it feels like it was yesterday. There will always be traces of his life that will never let us forget him!

We will remember him with gratitude as a cherished colleague and, even more so, as a friend and person, and will always honor his memory.

Our deepest sympathy goes to his family.


The source of all technical achievements is the divine curiosity and the playful instinct of the tinkering and pondering researcher, and no less the constructive imagination of the technical inventor.
