Kuhnke Automation

KUHNKE Automation develops and sells customer-specific mechatronic solutions to optimize automatic processes. Core competencies are control and positioning systems, pneumatic solutions and solenoids. Based upon broad technological expertise, KUHNKE creates world class solutions and products which enhance our customer's competitiveness and reduce costs significantly. Ventura, the modular control platform for automation solutions, is the central device for the integration of process control- and field-level. It features EtherCAT, PROFIBUS, CAN and AS-Interface as well as standard interfaces and is custom-designed for the industrial environment. The automation software Ventura Life supports computer simulations for machine and electronic design engineering. Thanks to (repeated) interpretation of the simulation results and subsequent model adaptations improved solutions for machine motion sequences can be developed. Ventura Life thus optimizes the overall design and reduces start-up times. The programming system is based upon CoDeSys in line with IEC 61131. In addition KUHNKE Automation offers Condition Monitoring Systems as well as engineering and maintenance services.
