Various types of vessels sail the oceans and seas all over the world. The propulsion and steering of these vessels is realised partly with thrusters from Veth Propulsion.
Veth Propulsion is a customer-oriented international producer of (auxiliary) propulsion installations for vessels. This is a family business and a global player which is leading in the fields of innovation, quality, flexibility and speed. This company has been one of Batenburg Mechatronica’s best customers for more than 25 years.
For all these years, Veth Propulsion has used our various types of precision potentiometers to full satisfaction. These are applied in order to be able to measure and monitor the precise 360° position of their thrusters, bow thrusters and control levers.
Veth Propulsion continually works on innovation and product development for its thrusters and bow thrusters. As a partner in the field of feedback sensors, Batenburg Mechatronica has collaborated, shared ideas and provided engineering services for the past 18 months in order to develop a completely new type of 360° position sensor for their new product range, both mechanically and electrically. In mechanical terms, a new flexible and modular concept has been designed. In electrical terms, a modern sleeve system is now used in order to allow communication with the new steering installation that Veth Propulsion has developed.
