Open. SCHUNK presented itself with this slogan at Automatica 2018.
In the age of digitalization, new methods are opening up to help shape the entire working world as well as the production environment in particular. Maximum flexibility and efficiency are just two aspects that facilitate the digitalization of production processes. The intelligent, smart components from SCHUNK open up new fields of applications, high transparency of processes and results and associated to this new strategies for you. At the same time, with our solutions you can remain absolutely flexible. They choose the production facility, the robot and the software solution!
Experience again how SCHUNK components help to reveal and harness the potential in your process.
At the Technology-goalkeeper-experts talk, our brand ambassador Jens Lehmann and Henrik A. Schunk, Chief Executive Officer of SCHUNK, discussed what it means to be open to new opportunities in this current period of technological change with Frank Blase, Managing Director/CEO of igus® GmbH, Dr. Bernd Liepert, Chief Innovation Officer at KUKA AG and president of euRobotics AISBL – the European Robotics Association, and Anja Schneider, Global Vice President, Head of Strategy & Customer Innovation at SAP Deutschland SE & Co. KG under the slogan "Open. Future Technology in a Connected World." Cross-sector, open, and honest!

Our extensive End-of-Arm range from SCHUNK offers you numerous components for a solution that is flexible and specifically adapted to meet your requirements. Just like in a modular system, the individual components can be efficiently combined. Be it a collaborating system, high-speed application, or assembly automation. Your solution:
The electrification or mechatronization of systems, besides having other advantages, also provides the basis for intelligent applications and solutions. 24V technology gives users an easy, cost-effective way in. At the Automatica, SCHUNK is offering components and solutions which can consistently realize complete assembly systems consisting of linear axes, rotary modules, and grippers on the basis of 24 V.
Monitor processes in real time and evaluate data in order to directly implement optimizations? With SCHUNK components, this can be achieved. From their exposed position "closest to the part", they gain data directly from the workpiece and provide this data reliably to you wherever you need it. You define the system, we feed it, and help you make decisions for improved processes.
Under the brand name Co-act (collaborative actuator), SCHUNK will be presenting its gripping technology program for safe human-robot collaboration (HRM). SCHUNK received the Hermes award at the Hannover Messe 2017 for the SCHUNK Co-act JL1 gripper, the world's first intelligent gripping module for human/robot collaboration, which directly interacts and communicates with humans. The Hermes Award is the most coveted technology prize in the world.
The new SCHUNK End-of-Arm modular systems, exclusively for Universal Robots, facilitates the individual and swift automation of handling and assembly tasks. Besides the conventional automation, a gripper for collaborative operation is also contained in the modular system.
