International cooperation continues regardless of COVID-19

 

For quite some time already, HOF-Automation has not only been working on a national level, but also far beyond the national borders. Even COVID-19 has not changed the company's working mode.

Some of our control systems have yet a long journey to take, as we are shipping them worldwide, such as recently to Saudi Arabia. There they will be used by a customer from the steel industry.

 

Whether national or international - for HOF-Automation there are no limits.

 




ADDITIONAL SAFEGUARDING OF DANGER ZONES

FEEL SAFE WITH REOLINK SECURITY CAMERAS

The dark winter season is the high season for burglaries. As houses are left unoccupied in the early hours of dusk, criminals benefit from the cover of darkness. This often causes them to remain undetected during their break-ins.

 

We have included reolink monitoring systems in our portfolio so that homeowners can keep an eye on their property, even when they are not on-site.

 

Manifold protection for companies

Security cameras offer additional protection, not just for private homes: For companies, reolink security cameras can be used to monitor the inner and outer area of the premises.

 

They can also be used to monitor areas of production that are difficult to check or critical (danger) areas. This ensures both, the employees' and the company's safety and offers a simple, comprehensive and documented production security.

 

Whether battery- or solar-powered, swivel-mounted or with memory function: reolink offers various products and solutions for a wide range of requirements.

 

We will be pleased to help you make your home a little bit safer.

HOW YOUR COMPANY REMAINS SUSTAINABLE

AUTOMATED PROCESSES INCREASE EFFICIENCY AND PRODUCTION RELIABILITY

 

Being independent, even in trying times - if companies are relying increasingly on personnel for manually performed operations, they will benefit from the fast and reliable execution of the process steps by using digital technology - regardless of the operator.

 

With robolink from igus, you can take the first step into the digital world. The industrial robot allows monotonous and even dangerous processes to be automated cost-effectively and easily. The components are based on a modular construction kit principle and can be customized according to individual requirements. This enables users to adapt flexibly to changes in the automation process.

 

 The introduction into the automated and digitalized world is often difficult. When it comes to such a complex topic, companies often do not know where to start and how to implement the integration of intelligent devices into their business processes. For installation and commissioning, we are at your side as a competent service partner. But not only that: We also offer comprehensive advice on the right choice or composition of the right product that fits your company perfectly.

 

 The robot from igus, for example, works as a "Pick & Place" application, it picks up required parts and places them at the chosen position. It can grasp up to three kilograms with one grip and, at maximum weight utilization, perform between seven and ten "picks" per minute. Using a camera above the work surface or at the frontend, the robot optimally scans the area to be processed, receives the data and then monitors it on the program. So regardless of how the parts are positioned, robolink is able to pick them up.

 

 The intelligent device is controlled via digital inputs and outputs or a bus system of the superior controller. The user writes the desired programs within the software, after that the robot will do the work by itself.

 

It can be used in any process in which individual parts have to be picked up and placed elsewhere. robolink is also suitable for checking screens or used cell phones (dismantling the display, disassembling it into individual parts).
