Metallurgy and in particular the iron and steel industry is today still a significant factory in the economy. Steel remains the versatile high-tech material that meets the highest requirements for quality and resilience.
This means that modern, efficient and environmentally protective technologies are more imporant for steel production than ever before. Especially since this industry is typically resource intensive and environmentally harmful. At the same time the production environment with it's high temperatures and enormous forces involved with forming also requires extremely robust technology: Sensors and devices which ensure the safety of people and can withstand the shocks and vibrations of this harsh environment. Balluff products have been meeting such challenges for many years.
