Festo SupraMotion: superconductors in industrial automation


Superconductors in industrial automation

Superconductors have tremendous potential for future industrial applications. They make it possible to suspend and move objects without contact – with minimal power consumption and no closed-loop control technology at all for suspension. Dust and abrasion-free operation makes them ideal for the protected conveyance of levitating objects in very clean environments. Handling functions which penetrate walls are also possible.
