TÜNKERS Worldwide Automation Technology made in Ratingen

As a German family-owned enterprise in second generation, we have developed from technical engineers into an international supplier of automation technology for serial production.

We share the enthusiasm for technology with our worldwide staff of 500, never failing to strive for the better more innovative solution. This is another reason why our products are not commercial goods but “home-grown products“, invented, constructed, produced and marketed by us – always in a close dialog with our customers, OEMs, plant engineers and engineering offices.

 

Tünkers automation technology in use


Even though the complexity of these systems is continuously on the rise, the automation lines are consistently and quintessentially based upon the same functions of clamping, processing and transporting. It is our objective to hand you a construction kit suiting industrial needs, for the new standard functions within the robotic environment, made of robust, maintenance-free components, designed for extreme operational conditions of line production in the automotive industry and its components suppliers – with turnkey modules already equipped with drive units, transmission, process monitoring systems and relevant interfaces and thus cover functions such as clamping or conveying as a whole.

This TÜNKERS construction kit renders plant engineering:
Faster – Plants can be fashioned faster through the consequent use of turnkey modules; time-consuming customised solutions are rendered obsolete.
Safer – Because it is always resorted to the tried and tested basics – the functional components.
More flexible – Because standards can be easily recomposed and adjusted to different framework conditions.

Experience Success in Series.

Tuenkers Automation Products set the standard. When looking for a partner who can offer innovative and efficient single-operation or entire system solutions for your production parts, Tuenkers is your choice! And if you value speed, flexibility, innovative concepts based on years of experience and personal engagement, then Tuenkers, a true family business, will convince you.
What can we do for you?

Modular steel construction

In conveying technology, steel structures must adapt to the situation on site, such as hall height, supporting pillars and plant layout. This is why this steel structure is always a delicate component often times delaying the entire plant construction progress.

90° accumulating conveyor – the preferred conveyor belt for loading!

Conveyor belts are used more and more frequently as a magazine for loading robotic cells. However, the systems that were originally conceived for conveying from one cell to another are not perfectly suited for the worker loading area.

New business area: “Dosing”

Laying it on thick” has a negative connotation, not only in colloquial language. In the field of automation, too, the right dosage is all-important for the application of sophisticated materials in increasingly complex systems.

Roller conveyor lifter with “dual scissors“

Lifting a roller conveyor is not rocket science. Most frequently, eccentric lifters are used for short strokes. For higher strokes of more than 400 mm, scissor lift tables have become ubiquitous.

LFS Belt Conveyor is green

LFS, the green belt conveyor is environmentally friendly. Instead of the chain that needs to be regularly lubricated, maintained and in the event of too great elongation shortened, a belt is used. The LFS belt conveyor with this clean power transmission is particularly suitable for conveying components for which pollution e.g. by oil is to be excluded.

Free wheel coupler for accumulating conveyor pallet

The motors of accumulating conveyors are under stress, because they are not only used for driving the pallets. Rather, the motor has also to compensate the friction of the standing pallets.
