SCHUNK Celebrate 20th Anniversary at MACH
19 April 2018
MACH 2018 was a huge success for SCHUNK Intec Ltd with the company announcing that lead generation was significantly higher than the 2016 event. With a stand more than 20% larger than in 2016, the gripping systems and clamping technology specialist received a high level of interest in a complete range of product lines.
SCHUNK used MACH as an opportunity to hold a special ceremony on its Stand to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary in the UK. Since entering the UK and Irish market 20 years ago SCHUNK Intec Ltd, has earned a reputation as a technology leader and innovator; gaining market recognition, continuous growth and adding value to the manufacturing industry through its revolutionary products and services. At MACH, established product lines won plaudits and generated a high level of enquiries; however, it was new technology like the new VERO-S Aviation stationary clamping system that really sparked the interest of MACH visitors.
Making its MACH debut, the VERO-S Aviation stationary clamping system is a pneumatically actuated zero-point clamping system developed for the direct clamping of structural components in the aerospace industry.
Also making its MACH debut and exciting the crowds was the new Co-act (collaborative actuator). As part of SCHUNK’s gripping system program for safe human-robot collaboration; the world's first intelligent gripping module for human/robot collaboration was certainly a central focal point at MACH. The new Co-act permits adjustments to the gripping process to be made in real-time using diverse sensor systems.
A standout solution on the SCHUNK stand at MACH was the ‘pick and place’ unit that demonstrated the company’s competence leadership in the field of automation. Highlighting how SCHUNK is a leading automation solution provider, the enclosed automation system certainly drew the attention of stand visitors. Alongside these leading systems at MACH was the VERO-S Quick-Change Pallet System, the TENDO Hydraulic Toolholder, the PGN-plus Gripper, MAGNOS Magnetic Clamping Technology, the ROTA-S Manual Lathe Chuck and more.
