Schmalz News


Duravit not only attaches great importance to visual perfection, but also to ergonomic handling solutions during production. Duravit relies on vacuum tube lifters from vacuum specialist Schmalz to pack its beautifully designed ceramic sinks, which weigh up to 35 kilograms, into cardboard boxes after production. This reduces physically strenuous work as well as illness-related absences.


Patented measurement: magneto-inductive sensors for demanding measurement tasks

The mainSENSOR measuring principle from Micro-Epsilon unites the advantages of two sensor types. Based on the combination of inductive sensors and magnetic sensors, reliable and durable sensor solutions for displacement, distance and rotational speed measurements have evolved. In particular, magneto-inductive sensors are used as alternatives to inductive sensors and proximity sensors in process automation, the packaging industry and in machine monitoring. Their favorable price/performance ratio makes them specially suitable for serial applications.
