Elesa+Ganter unveils new wireless spindle positioning system

Elesa+Ganter, a worldwide sales joint-venture that offers product of standard machine elements for the mechanical industry, has recently launched its new wireless spindle positioning system. The new system is designed for an efficient manual spindle positioning and consists of UC-RF control unit, up to 36 electronic position indicators, DD52R-E-RF.

The new electronic position indicators DD52R-E-RF are networked to UC-RF control unit via radio frequency (RF). The PLC, connected to the UC-RF control unit, allows the remote monitoring of the indicators.

The system is specifically suitable for applications requiring frequent format changes, facilitating the correct adjustment of the target/current position of the machine parts, also representing a safety system. PLC can be programmed in order not to allow the machine to start the production cycle, thus avoiding production issues.

The installation of the system is quick and easy as it does not require any cable connections between the indicators and the control unit or the PLC. Thanks to the available functions and to the programmable parameters, one item only can be used for many applications including all shaft pitch variations, direction of rotation and unit of measure. The new product comes with a six-digit display to ensure excellent readability even from a distance and from different viewing angles. The product is high protection degree of IP65 or IP67 for applications require frequent washing, even with intense water jets.

Often machine setup is performed manually using traditional mechanical indicators coupled with handwheels or crank handles, following a specific list of set-up parameters.

Apart from these the product is corrosion resistant, AISI 304, stainless steel boss with Ø 20 mm. The product has long battery life of over three years.
