NEW Encoders for High Speed Spindles

Spindles are among the key components of a machine tool. Their characteristics are determined by the design, the drive and the bearing systems. Position feedback encoders play a decisive role particularly for the drive performance. HEIDENHAIN is presenting the NEW ERM 2400 encoders, ideal for applications that offer little space and yet require a relatively high accuracy of angular measurement.

Resolvers vs Encoders for Motion Control

The phrase “more precise control” would generally drive the solution towards an encoder over a resolver. The application of dry food packaging however might tend to drive it back towards a resolver. Here are some characteristics you can consider to help make the decision.

Early Warning System for Production Systems

If small modules in a plant or machinery break down without notice, the costs for the replacement part are usually out of all proportion to the damage caused by the interruption of production. For example, in the paper industry the costs of each hour of interrupted production are on the order of $7000 and more.
