Whether a prototyping platform or a production manufacturing station – standard machine elements from Elesa underpin and enable a great deal of equipment delivering advanced engineering solutions to industries as various as medical devices, aero engineering, composite manufacturing, automotive, advanced metal manufacturing and Industry 4.0.

Elesa Stand A2 is the place to visit for ideas about standard machine elements that can enhance customer machines, aid production while reducing time and costs. The Elesa team are dedicated to providing a platform for knowledge transfer and business discussions across R&D design, test, measurement & inspection, raw materials & processing, manufacturing, production and automation.

Elesa will feature flagship machine elements including the LM series stainless steel levelling feet with EHEDG certification, especially for food related environments where bio-level cleaning is required on a frequent basis.

Demonstrating their wide portfolio, Elesa will demonstrate GLA roller slide guides for use as conveyor side guides, as well as VB three-arm hand knobs for clamping/adjustment of equipment – also MVAS safety vertical toggle clamps.

Where more active control is required, e.g. of machine rollers, then the Elesa stand will feature their UC-RF control unit which combined with DD series RF electronic position indicators, offers a PLC connected monitoring system which is particularly suitable for applications that require frequent format changes, facilitating the correct adjustment of the target-current position of the machine parts, also representing a safety system. In fact, even if a single DD52R-E-RF indicator is not placed in the target position, PLC doesn’t allow the beginning of the machine production cycle, thus avoiding production issues.
