The VAHLE Difference
VAHLE was founded by Paul Vahle over one hundred years ago. Working at a steel mill, he was dissatisfied with the current methods of powering heavy mobile equipment. He knew there had to be a better way so Paul designed and patented the original conductor bar system. His system is still used in many applications today.
Through the years, VAHLE’s expertise has expanded beyond the standard conductor bar. SMG, our Slotted Microwave Guide products, offers wireless mobile data transfer inside specialty designed housing that block outside interference. APOS, our Absolute Positioning Systems, supply absolute positioning down to +/- 1mm, which allows unprecedented control and automation. VAHLE offers multiple options: enclosed conductor bars, cable festoon systems, charging contacts, inductive power and control boxes.
