Precision and absolute industrial suitability – these are the challenges of electric components in robotics. Robustness and longevity are required here. 

Chemistry & Pharmaceutics

The chemical and pharmaceutical industries are subject to demanding process conditions. The systems and their components must be able to withstand high temperatures and meet special requirements for impermeability. 

Oil & Gas

Applications in the oil and gas sector place particularly high demands on machines and plants. Explosion protection and impermeability must meet the highest requirements.

Additional industries

HUMMEL products are used in many other industries. They are used wherever intelligent and reliable connection solutions are required.
