    Materials Handling

    A common element of all work steps is the materials handling technology. Electric overhead conveyors, floor conveyor technology or driverless transport systems move body and vehicle parts between individual systems and functions.

    Reliability of the components is also very important in the paint shop. The cars are sprayed with different colours one after the other while on the paint-spray line. Downtimes in automobile paint lines have to be prevented without fail, occurring faults must be detected and remedied as quickly as possible.


  • Powertrain




    Powertrain production is characterised by machine tools and assembly lines. Protection solutions need to be compact, flexible and cost-effective. Diagnosis via IO link allows complete transparency of the DC 24 V power supply and is a part of predictive maintenance.

  • Assembly




    Final assembly holds the highlight of car production: The marriage!

    Body and powertrain meet. DC 24 V protection and power distribution are of the utmost importance both at the assembly line and in the test equipment. Many sensors, actuators and the control unit need to be optimally protected to ensure smooth operation of the process.
