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.

Cycling Chain Conveyor with Immersion Bath 01

Problem definition
An automated cleaning station with an immersion bath is required in an assembly line for metal spindles. The spindles are loaded onto the conveyor by a customer-provided handling system and then transported into the cleaning solution, where they are rinsed. Any fluid and dirt...
