Production facilities and logistics centres are promoting digitalization, automation and process optimization in order to survive against fierce competition. The aim is to optimize the relationship between speed, quality and cost efficiency, and to ensure uninterrupted operations.
Whether it's building automation, machine control, semi-autonomous industrial trucks or intelligent loading ramp control: safety, precision, reliability and ease of use are the top priorities.
Linear drives are at the heart of the digitalization of machines and vehicles. They are omnipresent. They are installed in every lifting system, every industrial truck, every ventilation system and every modern loading ramp.
And not a single one of them is permitted to fail. Each must deliver a constant performance: for years and sometimes around the clock. Often, they must work under adverse environmental conditions that include shocks, vibrations, rain, ice and sometimes even chemicals.
Naturally, reproducible precision is expected: where even after 10,000 movements, the position reached is still accurate to the millimetre. Only in this way is it possible, for example, to build automatic docking devices for industrial trucks, lifting and lowering devices for transport racks or loading ramp controls.
Linear drives must adapt to the construction. Ideally, they should blend in seamlessly and unobtrusively, with precisely matched mounting holes, stroke lengths and adapters.
Phoenix Mecano's drive solutions combine extreme robustness with precision and easy integration into all kinds of constructions. You benefit from the following advantages:
