Electronic position indicator for absolute spindle adjustments

Home Engineering Electronic - Instrumentation & Control Electronic position indicator for absolute spindle adjustments

INSTROTECH is offering the Siko AP20 position indicator, which it says is ideally equipped to detect the position of spindle adjustments in machines.

According to the company, it displays the corresponding positional data to the operator and passes it on to the machine control system. “Simple system integration in combination with modern interfaces is all that is required,” the company said in a statement.

“On the one hand, this ensures the shortest possible downtimes, on the other the interfaces provide loss-free data communication between the position indicator and the machine control system.”

It added that the compact system is particularly suitable for flexible manufacturing with production machines such as packing machines, woodworking machines, printing machines and machines for further processing of printed products.

“Wherever manual adjustment is carried out on production machines, bus-compatible Siko position indicators are able to optimize the production process in such a way that costly refitting times during product changeovers are kept to a minimum.

“Once installed, position indicators provide 100% process reliability. During product and size changeovers, incorrect machine settings and the associated risk of damage to tools or batches with defects can be eliminated consistently with the AP20.”
