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.

GUF-R 2000AR Reinraumförderer 03

Task
A conveyor is required that operates with especially low emissions for the demanding use in cleanrooms. In addition, operation must not cause any air turbulence, or only very little, in order to prevent dispersion of tiny particles in the room. The conveyor must be suitable for cleaning in…

Dynamischer Puffer Ansicht 01

Task
Products have different shapes, materials and texturessome surfaces are very sensitive or packaging is often not dimensionally stable. In order to store the products as carefully as possible on transport lines, a system is to be developed that buffers the products without back pressure and…

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…

Folienmaschine für Lieferscheintaschen

Problem definition
A foil wrapping machine for manufacturing delivery note pockets with glued-on hook-and-loop fasteners is to be fully retrofitted and renovated. The machine processes 80 m of foil or silicone paper fully automatically to produce 1,000 delivery note pockets per minute. The system’s…
