Absolute encoders for roll gap control

Unlike other encoder solutions for roll gap regulation, the new Linear 4000 series from Leine&Linde will not need to be installed inside a cylinder. These robust linear encoders are easily accessible for installation and service – and they provide absolute position values. A steel mill’s rolling stands operate in one of the industry’s absolute toughest […]

Encoders for extreme demands at steelworks

Extreme 1000 series. That is the name of the latest range of encoders to come out of the development department in Strängnäs. And they certainly live up to their name. For some considerable time it was the well-known 800 series that set the standard for steelwork encoders. However, the extreme conditions, e.g. dust, vibrations, shocks, […]
