The Kübler Group has now become one of the world's leading experts in the field of position and motion sensors, counting and process sensors. The company was founded in 1960 by Fritz Kübler and became a family business. Today it is continued by the next generation of the family, his two sons - Gebhard Kübler and Lothar Kübler. The company's merchandise exports currently account for over 60 percent of the company's turnover, with 8 international group members and distributors in over 50 countries.
The company has grown particularly strongly over the past 10 years and is now proud of its turnover in excess of 45 million euros (2011) and many large global clients. Customer focus, flexibility as well as the know-how that have been built over decades, serve as the basis for the company's wide and innovative product range. These include customized products and industry-specific solutions as well as functional safety solutions.
Short response times, a desire to inspire customers and a very high level of service are additional support. Rigorous attention to quality ensures high reliability and long service life for all products in this field. An additional success factor is the Kaizen culture, which focuses on continuous quality improvement.
More than 400 dedicated people around the world help build the company's success and reputation and ensure that customers can fully trust the brand. There are great opportunities for businesses to apply innovation-driven applications and provide outstanding all-round service. With more than 400 employees and three production sites, it reliably delivers a high level of product flexibility, high quality management, and exceptional delivery reliability.
From the early days of the company, its success has always been based on 3 pillars: innovative products and solutions, independence from banks and large corporations, and a strong international orientation. Kübler's latest innovative product - the first 100% optical electronic multiturn sensor - has won numerous technology innovation awards.
Sensors and measuring systems
The Kübler range of encoders includes incremental and absolute encoders with both optical and magnetic shaft positioning systems. The absolute encoders in the product line are available in both single-turn and multi-turn models. Most encoders are available in two versions with a regular or hollow shaft. In addition, the catalog contains compact capacitive non-bearing encoders. To determine the linear position of devices, Kubler manufactures linear measuring systems with magnetic sensors and magnetic stripe or analog sensor and cable. To determine the angle of inclination, the company produces various inclinometers.
Counters of different types
Kubler manufactures impulse counters of various types: electronic, electromechanical, pneumatic. Depending on the type of meter, they are equipped with a digital or mechanical display system for the current value. Electronic and electromechanical counters are also available with a preset for convenient counting of impulses, time and speed.
To measure time intervals, the company offers a wide selection of electromechanical and electronic timers, including preset ones. Tachometers are used to measure the number of revolutions. In addition, multifunctional devices with a convenient display are produced, allowing to count pulses, time, rotation speed and show the current position.
Displays and Controllers
Versatile digital displays with searchable minimum and maximum values, process controllers with information display and multi-limit control. Temperature regulators with indication of current readings, strain gauge controllers with displays. The compact Safety-M modules provide speed monitoring in a minimum volume. The possibility of connecting incremental encoders enables various safety functions of the drives to be implemented.
Slip ring trolleys
Kübler slip ring slip rings are designed to connect fixed and rotating electrical circuits. The connection takes place by means of slip rings of a high degree of reliability. Kubler manufactures a wide range of modular slip ring trolleys for flexible power and signal contact applications. Collectors can work with Profibus, CANopen, etc. and are used in automatic packaging machines, robotic manipulators, automatic transport systems, cranes, rotary tables and other similar equipment.
Optical modules and accessories
Kubler incremental optical modules are used in demanding signal transmission conditions. The system, consisting of an optical transmitter and receiver, converts the electrical signals from the sensors into an optical signal, and the reverse conversion takes place at the other end of the optical highway. Standard optical modules provide signal transmission over fiber optic lines at distances up to 2000 m. In addition to modules, the company produces a wide range of various cables and connectors for connecting its own devices and ensuring interaction with third-party equipment and equipment.
