Baumer AlphaProx Inductive Distance Measurement Sensors

October 27, 2016

alpha-proxBaumer AlphaProx family are the perfect solution for reliable non-contact measurement of changes in the position of metal objects. Thanks to their high temperature stability in connection with large measuring distances, the high degree of consistency and their robustness, the sensors are ideally suited for measuring positions and angles, controlling and monitoring belt tension, controlling sag and measuring low-frequency vibrations.

SMC – LER Electric Rotary Table

September 15, 2016

ler-rotary-tableElectric actuators offer a significantly increased amount of control over the motion profile, in a non-pneumatic environment. The LER rotary series is SMC’s newest member of the LE electric actuator family.

The LER uses a 24VDC step motor within a compact body to transmit torque through a rotating table. Radial and moment loads are supported by a deep groove ball bearing or a special high-precision ball bearing (option). Step data can be written to the controller using PC software or a portable teaching pendant. Absolute and relative angular positions can be set, along with full definition of speed, acceleration and deceleration. A complete package including actuator, controller, robot cable, and I/O cable can be specified using one simple part number.

Applicable Industries:

  • Automotive/Heavy Vehicle
  • Electronic/Semiconductor
  • Food/Beverage
  • Forestry/Paper Products
  • Material Handling
  • Medical/Pharmaceutical
  • Packaging
