The rotation and swivel of the next generation
The progression of rotating and swiveling, and where the potential lies.
Be it high loads or short cycle times - rotary modules and swivel units are constantly under pressure to deliver even better performance when it comes to handling and assembly.
For Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus Glück, Managing Director Research & Development, CINO, at SCHUNK the potential for rotary motions is still far from being fully used: "We are currently experiencing a phase of rapid technological innovation. Highly automated, networked production systems are determining intelligent production processes and making their way into production facilities," states Glück. "The market is demanding swivel units that can be put into operation quickly and intuitively without the need for special technical know how. The swivel units of tomorrow will also have to adjust automatically to load situations and application scenarios."
