This company was originally founded in 1985 in Aveiro, Portugal, by legendary Eng. Franz “The Magician” Kulzer, the German Mechanics Engineer from Bavaria, that made any 2-stroke motorcycle engine run like hell. He made his motorcross drivers win against all odds and against larger companies. He made a world-record breaking motorcycle engine. He was “The Magician” among engine constructors. Nowadays he dedicates his time to gardening.
After retiring, his company was later taken over by his son, Eng. Pedro Kulzer. Specialized in electronics and software consulting and customized electronics and software development, it has been involved in technologically advanced fields since its start. Eng. Franz Kulzer is a Mechanics Engineer and was a motorcycle racing specialist at Sachs, Casal, Zündapp and DIAG in the 70s and 80s. His self-engineered motorcycle engines, 7-gear gearboxes and chassis won many races and even established world speed records. In the motorcycle racing scene Eng. Franz Kulzer was called “The Magician”, for getting performance out of his engines and his drivers, no other ever could! After spending the 90s organizing and managing technical production sections of companies like Mafirol, Abril, TEKA and such, he is now retired and dedicated to his house and garden near Aveiro. From 2005 on, this company has been conducted by Eng. Pedro Kulzer and has been involved in creating software and hardware for most demanding scenes of activity. Having inherited the natural “knack” for innovative engineering instead of just following textbooks, KulzerTEC continues marking the difference.
Two major projects started emerging from this company at the end of 2006, driven by the urge of doing new and highly innovative work in the automotive electronics area. The biggest project was the “ECU2010” project (previously called “Revolutionary Motorsports”) in consortium with Bosch Motorsport and the University of Aveiro. These projects called for additions to the company’s personell, with 6 fresh-made Engineers directly from this same university. Together, these 6 Engineers, together with Pedro Kulzer as the head of the project, created some highly innovative pieces of software and hardware that largely surpassed some state-of-the-art technology in general, by literally reinventing the manner in how programming automotive ECUs was done. This project made its technological developments and progress directly inside the campus of the University of Aveiro, in the Departamento de Electrónica, Telecomunicações e Informática – Sala 234 – Campus Universitário de Santiago – Aveiro – Portugal. This allowed us to keep contact with the latest technology advances. This project progressed and finished late 2009 with full success.The final show-down was made at Bosch Motorsport’s facilities in Germany. The most prominent technological feature that emerged from this long but rewarding period of highly innovative work was the Live-Prototyping programming possibility of being able to program a 100% fully running system (including running engine) by modifying or adding anything anywhere in the system without ever disrupting it. Pedro Kulzer finished his PhD 100% based on the work done in this project during the active 3 years, having started it back in 2009 and finished in 2015.
The “Automotive TESTER AT1” automotive testing gadget is a project that started back in 2005 as a simple idea, having developed into a full-fledged portable testing equipment for automotive developers. This project finished at the beginning of 2009 but is still undergoing minor enhancements. The resulting product was 100% developed, constructed and programmed by Pedro Kulzer and is now being actively produced and marketed by SMART Electronic Development GmbH under a mutual licensing agreement since mid-2010. The main market for this gadget is oriented towards car mechanic shops, ECU repair shops, laboratory tables, tuners and, last but not least, the main market share of Automotive Motorsport.
Having reached a good state of maturity created over those above mentioned years, those Engineers were released into the professional market and are doing very well. All except for Filipe Teixeira and Paulo Martins who returned in 2011 to embrace new technical challenges together with Pedro Kulzer. We can praise ourselves for being highly inventive, innovative and experts in developing new and highly customized electronic circuitry and firmware/software. We can also help you expand your own innovative ideas by adding a new twist to them. We like working in fields where the need of Integrating Intelligent Simplicity is a fundamental issue. By this we mean non-standard ideas and creativity, alongside with a non-standard way of doing things, which lead to revolutionary technology that is not available elsewhere else in the world (e.g. Live-Prototyping as mentioned earlier).
