mk Profile Systems Ltd

mk is one of the leading suppliers of profile technology, conveyor technology and system solutions for factory automation
mk Profile Technology offers over 250 profile cross sections manufactured from high quality alloys which are stability orientated connection technology, along with a line of associated parts and accessories. These components are the basis to the start of your project whether it’s a simple frame to a bearing assembly.

The main advantage of using mk Profile Technology is the solid connection technology and extensive line accessories.

The 1mm radius edges allow for seamless interconnection between parts. These profile systems are also reusable thanks to the screw connections.

The high quality anodized surface finish also means there is no reworking required.

mk Factory Equipment offers an economical and comprehensive range of product line modules, components and single parts for individual situations including Guarding, Workstations and GTP (Guardrails, Tread, Platform)

The main advantage of the mk Factory Equipment is that it is easy to set up due to its modular design properties.

It is also attractive by design and offers good functionality and ergonomics. With a range of complimentary dimensionally accurate guardrails, treads and platforms the mk Factory Equipment System offers a safe working environment for any situation.

mk Conveyor Technology
mk also offers a range of 24 conveyor systems for almost every transport and implementation situation. Simply tell us what your conveyor requirements are and we will design and manufacture a suitable system to meet your specific needs.

Advantages of mk Conveyor Systems include the choice of a large range of standardised modularly structured conveyor systems which can be manufactured to individual needs.

Also all the systems are suitable for the transporting of a wide range of products.

mk Transfer Systems
With mk transfer and handling systems, you are getting reliable and practical system solutions that will optimise your production and assembly process. We offer efficient solutions for conveying, feeding, interlinking, sorting, buffering, separating, rotating, loading and unloading to meet virtually any requirements.

With the appropriate control technology these transfer systems can be utilised to interlink the four mk systems, namely the profile technology, conveyor technology, linear motion and factory equipment.

mk Linear Motion

mk Linear Motions products include stands for slide guides, track roller guides and recirculating ball bearing guides all of which have been designed and produced to offer reliability and precision operation.

Advantages of the mk Linear Motion System include optimal functionality through selection of slide rails, track roller guides and recirculating ball bearing guides.

They offer high reliability through the clamp profiles for the guide rods to ensure maximum parallelism for precise running.

mk linear guides can also be directly mounted on an existing profile construction resulting in material and space savings.
