The extensive Elesa range of standard machine elements is designed around the needs of manufacturing in all industry sectors, many of which will be on display at the 2019 Southern Manufacturing Exhibition. This takes place from 5th-7th February at FIVE, Farnborough.
Featured on the Elesa stand no. F250 will be their new ZCR and ZCL modular gear racks and spur gears, which provide an easy-to-install package of quiet, lightweight, lubrication-free and soft feel rack and pinion gear drives for adjustment of equipment, or positioning of workpieces. Typically, they are suitable for assembly equipment, production workstations, instrumentation, inspection systems or other situations where quick linear movement is required.
These are readily paired with Elesa’s IP65-7 direct dial digital position indicators with electronic mechanism for easy setup and readout, coupled with the Elesa wireless spindle positioning system. This enables faster and more reliable machine setup by use of a wireless connected profile controller, which displays the initial setup values on each of up to 36 electronic position indicators. The operator can simply choose the appropriate menu, then quickly reset each spindle to its correct start position and the machine is “good to go”. This saves time and takes out much of the possibility of human error.
A wide range of levelling feet complement the needs of equipment manufacturers; many in stainless steel for heavy-duty application and special designs with vibration damping pads to prolong equipment life, or for use in bio-hazard areas such as food processing and other hygiene-sensitive areas.
The Elesa LMHD hygienic levelling feet (EHEDG certified) with mounting holes, provide rugged, adjustable equipment mounting and facilitate reduced cleaning work – which can be up to 25% of the production time. Thus, leaving more time available for production, with less use of resources such as fresh water, energy and cleaning agents – also with less waste water to process – resulting in lower total costs.
