Superconductors The Future Of Automation

Festo Superconductors

Festo wants to use superconductors in factory automation. When cooled below a certain temperature a superconductor electrical resistance drops to zero allowing it to freely hover. This concept also works with magnetic fields when a superconductor is cooled near a magnet, it is able to permanently store its magnetic field.

Using superconductors means contactless handling in automation, which is important for sensitive materials as the tech developers. Superconductors could make for safer human handling in the future of automation.
