Press release date: September 1, 2007
SCHUNK is expanding its extensive Automation Component line with the acquisition of Gemotec Montagetechnik GmbH.
Gemotec manufacturers a complete product range of modular assembly technology, consisting of pneumatically and electrically operated linear units, gripper modules and rotary actuators. The Gemotec components are proven in thousands of assembly applications and very well known throughout Europe. These highly dynamic and flexible assembly solutions will easily adapt most to any assembly automation needs without special adapter plate designs. Design time is saved and costs are reduced.
The comprehensive product line is completely modular, and can be freely integrated with other components of the system. It's easy "combine instead of design", individual assembly solutions right through to complete functional assemblies, with the use of an intuitive sizing software and without having to resort to special adapter plates or designs.
For SCHUNK the acquisition of Gemotec represents the perfect complement to the existing product range, from which SCHUNK hopes to achieve considerable synergies and significantly improve market coverage. Customers can now obtain an extended range of products and take advantage of the worldwide sales and support network of SCHUNK.
