Industrial Automation

When working within the industrial automation sector, the motion control solutions that are designed and manufactured are an essential consideration and can make or break a project. We understand that no two projects or engineering briefs are the same, which is why we tailor our solutions each and every time to maximise success.

Food Production 

From metal to plastic, food packaging comes in a variety of forms which means that the machinery used to pack various food items on a mass scale requires a variety of solutions. At Camloc Motion Control, we have a diverse range of gas struts and dampers that can be used within food packaging machines to optimise durability and functionality. 

Our team will take the time to consider the risks or consequences of each solution, which means we can use our products to improve the motion of a food packaging machine or provide lift support to an access panel used when servicing or maintaining it. 

For example, when creating a solution that is suitable for use in food sealing machinery, protecting the machine from impact forces is paramount to its reliability and longevity. Our hydraulic dampers are available in a wide range of types, damping characteristics, and sizes that can be tailored to each specific machine and application.  

Solutions from our fixed force compression struts are often found in food manufacturing and our team will speak to you about which product would best suit your specific requirements. 

Stainless Steel  

Our stainless steel option provides extra corrosion resistance and cleanliness for use in sterile, food production environments. Large scale food production is an operational challenge because of the need for reliable machinery that will provide output while requiring minimal maintenance which can disrupt the process. 

With cleanliness and consumer safety of paramount importance in food manufacturing automation equipment, the ability to adapt applications to each customer’s specific requirement is critical. Our range of products can be specified using 316L stainless steel construction and with food-safe oils where necessary. Our range of Fixed Force Compression Struts are often found in food manufacturing environments where the ability to safely lift, lower and control the movement of the equipment is required. 

Packaging Equipment 

Whatever products you need to package your item, you will require a reliable machine that can fulfil your largescale delivery requests. Our hydraulic dampers reduce the shock impact and increase the lifespan of packaging and sealing equipment is what we aim to do by providing motion controls solutions within all packaging machinery.  

Our dampers are also available in stainless steel. The damper absorbs the kinetic energy and provides a smooth, seamless environment for the rest of the equipment to operate in. This motion control solution provides the durability, range of motion and versatility needed to work on packing equipment.

The calibration of robotic handling systems can often be a challenge. To avoid and mitigate these challenges, we work alongside our clients to provide solutions that work. To help ensure that our customers’ equipment continues to perform at the levels required, our range of hydraulic dampers, are often found controlling and absorbing the kinetic motion of the machinery they’re used on, protecting both operators and equipment. 

Working with industry-based design engineers, we’re able to develop applications as diverse as the equipment they’re being used within. We understand the unique challenges of working in the industrial automation and machinery sectors, and that no two projects are the same. Your solutions won’t be, either. 

Warehouse barrier systems 

Motion control solutions are a great asset within warehouse barrier systems and our Fixed Force Compression Strut provide the durability and range of motion needed to suit a wide variety of project types. 

In all manufacturing sites, safety is paramount. Minimising risk and improving site safety by separating personnel from moving plant and equipment is crucial. We have many years of experience in providing effective barrier systems that keep workers safe. 

For control system cabinet access, selecting the correct motion control solution is key. For this variety of project, durability is a valuable feature to have. Our gas struts and dampers are made within our UK factory from the highest-quality materials so that our solutions stand the test of time. 

Continuous investment in our staff and the latest hardware keeps us at the forefront of our industry, ensuring we continuously adopt the latest manufacturing processes from our facility, and we successfully problem-solve for our customers. We continue to enhance and evolve our production processes using lean manufacturing methods, something we have been doing since 2001.
