Locking solutions for Mechanical Engineering

Closures of control cabinets and enclosures in mechanical engineering must meet the most diverse requirements. Quick assembly and simple installation, convenient operation and, above all, a secure locking system are required. Because on highly dangerous machines, personal protection plays a particularly important role. A professional locking system secures the highly sensitive electronics in control cabinets on the one hand, but also the persons in areas of a machine where safety is endangered.

Locking solutions in mechanical engineering must primarily meet the criteria of safety, locking and operating convenience as well as durability even under demanding conditions.

With EMKA as a long-time expert for locking solutions you have found a partner who supplies you with locks like safety quarter turn or compression latches as well as hinges, handles and sealing profiles that consistently meet the demanding criteria in mechanical engineering.
