We develop for our customers …
…and think outside the box! Kendrion develops customer-specific solutions which reach with additional assemblies and electronics far beyond the purely electromagnetic components. The electromagnetic solutions of Kendrion are applied in high-tech systems which require specially designed actuators optimized for the respective application. Material selection tailored to the process, dimensioning of components attuned to the required forces and switching speeds as well as lifetime-optimisation are core issues of our customers.
It is our development philosophy to think in terms of solutions for our customers. The expansion of our portfolio by mechanical assemblies, sensor systems and electronics represents a core competence of Kendrion today. We help our customers to facilitate the integration of our assemblies, to save components and costs and to be technologically one step ahead of the competition.
Examples of assemblies and mechatronic solutions:
Life-saving ski lift locking
The innovative locking system makes sure that the restraining bar of a chairlift is arrested during the ride and is released again as soon as the lift station is reached. The safety system provides a holding force of 200 kg and is based on a rotary solenoid with integrated monitoring function.
Hydrogen valve for mobile charger
For a battery charger based on a fuel cell Kendrion is developing a valve to control the hydrogen current during power generation. Due to the small size of the hydrogen valves the technical requirements to the precision of the control valve are extremely high.
Needle selection system in the textile industry
In cooperation with a customer Kendrion develops and produces a mechatronic assembly installed into knitting machines. In order to assure the production of top-quality textiles tolerances of just a few micrometers in production and installation were implemented.
