Flexible production processes instantly or at the flick of a switch
The demands for flexibility to be met by modern production processes are on the steady increase. With a wide product variety and increasingly small batch sizes, optimum system availability is becoming even more important. Short tooling times are therefore a standard requirement for production and packaging machines.
The reliability of the positioning systems employed is decisive for flexible production processes, irrespective of whether these are inexpensive with a handwheel, reliable with a bus-compatible position indicator or fully automatic with an actuator. As the inventor of the mechanical-digital position indicator, the so-called SIKO counter, today we are the global market leader in the field of digital position indicators. With our close partnerships with a circle of customers that includes internationally pioneering machine manufacturers, for decades we have been setting standards with innovative solutions for efficient format adjustment when changing products.
The higher the required quality and the more frequently an axis has to be positioned, the more productive and profitable the use of a monitored or automated positioning solution is.
With the use of different technologies we supply the most economical solution for a very wide range of applications. These different positioning systems are also normally mechanically compatible so that they can be flexibly combined. As a machine manufacturer this is a considerable advantage! You can individually configure and supply the degree of machine automation required by your customer. It is also effective to equip axes that require frequent adjustment with our compact actuators, and axes that only require infrequent adjustment with inexpensive position indicators. We call this "Smart Positioning!".
