Festo SupraMotion: superconductors in industrial automation

SupraMotion

Superconductors in industrial automation

Superconductors have tremendous potential for future industrial applications. They enable objects to be suspended and moved without contact, with low power consumption and without any control technology at all for the suspension. Their dust- and abrasion-free operation makes them ideal for the protected transport of levitating objects in very clean environments. It even makes handling functions through walls possible.
