In order to cope with the rapidly increasing international movement of goods, a future-proof intralogistics system is needed that can be used to transport goods efficiently and quickly. Our customers are leading manufacturers of such logistics solutions and have many years of expertise in the field of conveyor technology and handling systems. Kendrion develops and produces electromagnetic sorting switches, for example, for overhead conveyors or modern shoe sorter systems, with which the transport direction of the goods is quickly and reliably controlled by setting the appropriate switches.
Electromagnetic sorting points are polarised rotary solenoids which perform a rotary movement over a defined angle (up to 60°). The start and end positions are held with high holding torque (bistable design). The high rotational speed of up to 10ms is achieved by reversing the polarity of the rotary magnet. Kendrion guarantees a maintenance-free operation of at least 100 million switching cycles.
For fast switching or sorting tasks, but also for other logistics tasks such as separating, ejecting, or separating, rotary magnets are the optimum components. In addition to their high dynamics and reliability, rotary actuators offer another significant advantage: the rotary solenoids replace pneumatically operated actuators in the overall solution and allow operation without an air supply.
Please contact us. We will be happy to present our solutions for intralogistics to you personally.
With its specific properties, the bistable rotary solenoids are suitable for use in logistics systems where fast and reliable switching and a strong bistable behaviour are required.
