Robotics and automation are often linked, since the omnipresent automation of production processes is primarily related to robots for automation. In the meantime, it has become common practice to optimize production in way that products can be manufactured as automatically and autonomously as possible. In the future, human labour will therefore concentrate increasingly on the control, maintenance and repair of plants and robots.
Safe robot applications
Safety aspects are an issue in every robot application. After all, even in the event of a controller or power failure, neither people nor capital goods must be harmed by irregular movements. Electromagnetic brakes are ideally suited for this purpose, especially since different functional principles, sizes and performance classes ensure that the appropriate safety brakes can always be found for the various robot applications.
Electrically actuated actuators
More and more companies recognize the advantages of electromagnetic actuators in factory and process automation. The electrically driven actuating elements are often not only more cost-effective to operate, they are also easier to control and configure than pneumatic cylinders, for example. These advantages come into play especially when all parts of an assembly line can be electrically driven, so that a factory can be operated completely free of an air pressure infrastructure.
Leading in the field of feeding technology
Controlled feeding, a continuous material flow and the separation of the material to be conveyed in the correct position are only a few of the key points that the electromagnetic solutions of Kendrion are up to in conveyor technology. Kendrion is the leading manufacturer in this field and offers its customers a wide range of options for every conveying system.
