For compliance with quality demands, applying radio technology in galvanization plants is required to meet high requirements with regard to availability, reliability and safety! This requires – in view of complex movement processes – intensive coordination between crane technology and radio technology during planning and constructing the plant in view of local conditions such as impairment of the radio link e.g. because of visual obstructions. Moreover, a comfortable start-up and remote-maintenance options for hardly or non-accessible conveyor components shall be enabled. In this process, control and drive engineering are required the same way as data radio, a field in which Schildknecht AG has been specializing for more than 20 years. A particular feature of this company is the equal status of innovative mechanical engineering and intensive application consultancy in the business model.
