Hot, damp and dirty - the environment in foundries and forging shops place stringent requirements on the material used. Despite the harsh working environment, the quality requirements for reproducibility and profitability of the cast parts are high. The situation is similar with welding, because high temperatures, electromagnetic fields and flying sparks require maximum ruggedness combined with precise results.
Casting, forging, welding
In the field of automation, gripping and handling are not the actual challenge, but rather the optimum equipment for maintaining the complete functional performance of the gripper. Gripping modules from SCHUNK have an extremely robust design and are manufactured from heat-resistant materials. Ideal for defying high temperatures, abrupt changes in temperature and stress from shocks and jolts. And yet precise enough even for very demanding tasks.
In clamping technology, robust toolholders for rough and volume machining are as much in demand as rugged solutions for workpiece clamping.
SCHUNK has a unique combination of experience and technological know-how that enables all of the above. This secures a decisive competitive advantage for our customers.
