Kurtz Ersa Magazine

Conline GmbH

Let´s automate industry!

No matter which industry sector you take a closer look at – whoever succeeds in intelligently integrating innovative automation solutions today will be at the forefront of the competition or will extend the lead in the market. With professional solutions for handling soldering machines as well as foam and foundry machines, the Conline GmbH team has already optimized numerous productions at home and abroad through automation integration – the results are: more output, highest precision, shortest cycle times!

In the field of plant automation, around 35 employees are currently working at full speed to supplement the Ersa and Kurtz machines established on the market with partly standardised, partly project-specific automation solutions. The customer thus receives the desired “System Solution by Kurtz Ersa” from a single source. Projects in the area of “Research & Development” are developed in the milestone release process on the basis of customer targets, from the first PoC sample to the final series status (PoC short for “Proof of Concept” or feasibility study). The product areas with additional requirements from the automation sector are manifold, for example peripheral transport systems for soldering material transport, fully automatic THT component assembly units, system solutions for optical worker support in the production environment, process-accompanying, product-specific automated optical tests in test cells as well as “pick & place” solutions in moulded part handling.

Colleagues from Vision Development teach robots how to see, and robotics experts take care of path planning. The aim is always to ensure that the robot systems (both linear and multi-axis robots) always perform their tasks in the most efficient way in the production environment. Conline´s PLC, high-level language and GUI (Graphical User Interface) programmers create and implement programs and a visually appealing user interface, so that Kurtz Ersa customers can intuitively operate their “Production Systems I4.0” themselves after a brief introduction.


Project management services

Conline Automation´s experts also provide project management services for larger and more complex automation projects. Inhouse customer acceptance of a complete system is also possible on the premises of Conline GmbH. “As know-how carriers in this dynamic environment, our employees are our most important success factor for the technical solutions and interfaces to the customer – here we have many years of cross-sector experience that flows into our customer solutions,” emphasizes Conline Managing Director Ralph Knecht.
