Machine tools

We will always be happy to discuss your requirements with you right from the beginning since that is the only way to create a solution that fits your machine concept. You can benefit from rapid prototyping as well as from the finite element method (FEM) or simulations and analysis. Our experts pay special attention to a high level of modularity and open interfaces for all common CNC machinery. We therefore prefer the simplest possible concepts based on standard products or system solutions, but also use industry segment-specific and customised solutions where necessary.

Air preparation and valve technology

 

Druckluftaufbereitung und Ventiltechnik

The benefits to you of suitable compressed air preparation:

  • Longer service life of your machine tools
  • Fewer machine failures
  • Fewer standstills

With integrated monitoring functions, you will always know the status of the compressed air filter which will enable you to plan needs-based maintenance: 

Dashboard condition monitoring

One specific advantage is that, thanks to the high flow rates and compact dimensions of our service units, you can select a size that is one size smaller than normal. It can be configured for all common applications in line with ISO 8573-1:2010 such as for class (7:4:4) as well as for demanding applications that require extremely pure compressed air, e.g. class (1:4:1) for optical displacement encoders or class (1:2:1) for laser cutting systems.

Automating loading and unloading systems

Automating loading and unloading systems

Customised products for different environments:

  • Additional scraper
  • Belts made from different materials
  • Chemical-resistant seals
  • Protective bellows
  • Sealing air

Our new generation of axes will inspire innovative ideas:

You can combine electric and pneumatic products to get the most efficient and cost-effective solution for your loading and unloading tasks. Using our modules, you can design a complete handling system easily and cost-effectively. This will save you development time which will be beneficial for your core business. Make the most of different technologies (toothed belt, spindle or rack and pinion axis) and various stroke lengths (up to 10 metres for the horizontal axis and 2.5 metres for the vertical axis). By using the best materials for belts or seals, you will obtain a sturdy and reliable system that is optimally suited for the ambient conditions of your application.

Pneumatics in balancer applications to compensate for electrical vertical movements

Pneumatics in balancer applications to compensate for electrical vertical movements

Reduce the size of your electric drive system by transforming vertical movements into horizontal movements and thus compensate for the weight of the load being moved.

The effect:

  • Lower costs for the electric valve actuator
  • Lower operating costs
  • Increased dynamic response
  • Faster system reaction
