In Metalworking a significant part of the products are realized by forming and stamping processes, especially for series applications. The monitoring technology for press control has achieved a remarkable progress within the last years.
Optimized cycle rates lead to increased productivity and output. At the same time, there is a rising risk of asset damage, especially if unexpected errors occur. Automated protection of the tools and dies helps to increase OEE. Sensors for process monitoring are key elements.Read more
Digitalization accelerates numerous internal organizational processes and influences the development of new products and solutions. Growing complexity and shorter development times increase the pressure on organizations. In order to be able to compete with new companions on the market, speed is – besides speed – a major competitive factor. For this reason, Balluff has been implemented so-called „Strategic Incubation Programs” (SIPs) to develop new business ideas.Read more
Miniaturization is a highly relevant trend in medical and lab technology. Increasing automation, constant object size reduction and increasing accuracy requirements lead to a higher integration degree. Driving applications are lab-on-a-chip, portable units or even invasive components like micropumps or catheters with sensor functionsRead more
