Solutions for Machine and Systems Construction

High-Quality Transport Systems Starting at Batch Size 1

mk supports innovations in the machine and system construction sector, from the prototype all the way to standardised production. Our experts develop and produce custom-tailored solutions for all sorts of production and supply chain applications – wherever transfer technology needs to be perfectly integrated into your systems.

For applications in machine and system construction, this means:

  • Innovative transport systems for custom machine construction starting at batch size 1
  • Wide range of flexible modules
  • Custom-development of modules according to customer requests
  • Sophisticated machine interlinks
  • Seamless transfer technology and system integration

Solutions from mk

For machine and system construction applications, mk offers a powerful modular construction kit that our partners can use to independently construct complex systems and custom machines. The key to our success lies in our sophisticated and versatile profile technology and our high-quality base components that can be used throughout the industry.

Our many years of experience allow us to develop and construct custom solutions that can be optimally integrated into existing systems and that work perfectly with controllers (PLCs, robots) and modern testing technology (digital image processing), .e.g. for leak detection and reliable quality assurance using transparent belt conveyors.

Versaflex Depalettierer 01

Task
Cardboard slip sheets must be removed from a depalletising machine. The slip sheets are both stacked on the conveyor and removed on the discharge end manually. During this process, they must be conveyed to a height of approx. 1,600 mm. The conveyor must be indexing and run in three-shift...

SPU Presse

Problem definition
The mounting process for sensor units for fertiliser spreaders needs to be optimised. Currently, the process is a slow and error-prone one in which a worker manually carries the individual components from station to station, where they are mounted and pressed. To streamline the...

Drehtisch 01

Problem definition
In a production process for ball bearings, ball bearing races of various sizes are manually positioned at the corresponding processing stations. Since the cycle times vary and to prevent the worker from constantly having to set and remove parts, a simple and cost-effective...

Transport ölhaltiger, scharfkantiger Produkte mit Knickförderer

Problem definition
Two machines in a pipe machining process need to be interlinked. Trimmed pipe pieces need to be transported to the next machine where they can be stamped. The pipe pieces are oily and have sharp edges. The interlink system must open to allow vehicles and transport boxes to pass...

Interlink for the production of cast parts 01

Problem definition
Two machining stations in a production process for cast parts need to be interlinked. The upstream and downstream machines have different cycle times. The interlink needs to restore the system’s autonomy. Two different types are produced on the line simultaneously. They are placed...
