Products need to be customized, produced in smaller batch sizes, and reach the market more and more quickly. At the same time, product quality has to remain the same or increase even as cost pressures grow. Innovative machine concepts are needed to allow manufacturing companies to meet these challenges. Handling solutions play an important role here – solutions that set new standards in terms of performance, and can be flexibly and rapidly implemented on an integrated automation platform.
Do you ask yourself what is behind Safe Kinematics and what are the advantages of this extended technology function in times of digitalization?

From standard solutions for all common applications to individualized solutions to meet your very specific needs, we support you from project planning to commissioning with the right engineering tools, products, and services.
Our solutions for SIMATIC and SIMOTION already cover a majority of the applications on the system side. Special industry-specific requirements, such as fully automatic synchronization on conveyor belts, are covered by a modular library concept.
The constantly growing variety in packaging requires maximum flexibility and productivity.
Integrating powerful handling systems into the packaging line on a controller platform reduces the number of interfaces. This reduces the time and effort needed for engineering, so a shorter time to market is possible.
Requirements in the plastics industry vary greatly, from high-speed removal systems for injection molding machines to high-performance stacking robots integrated into the machinery for thermoforming processes. Take advantage of our wide range of automation products.
When producing standard flat glass, it is crucial to ensure speed and precision. Our standard applications – for example, for “flying cutting” and for unloading glass panels – help you achieve these goals.
SIMATIC S7-1500 technology CPUs with the kinematics technology object provide functions for controlling kinematics.
With our SIMOTION Handling Toolbox, we offer you the right modular solutions for any handling task.
For precise contour movements like those required for gluing processes, it’s also possible to use G-code.
All common kinematics are already provided by the system and simply need to be parameterized by the user via appropriate screens.
