Superconductors Used in Factory Automation

Festo is a German company that specializes in developing tech for factory automation. Recently, they’ve been exploring superconductors, which are objects that are able to retain magnetic fields as they drop electrical resistance when cooled below a critical temperature. The resulting hovering effect could have hundreds of uses in industrial applications, as it allows contactless handling. Are superconductors the future of automation?
