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 2018 Southern Manufacturing Exhibition. This takes place on 6–8 February at FIVE, Farnborough.
Featured on the Elesa stand no. H260 will be their IP65-7 direct dial digital position indicators with electronic mechanism for easy setup and readout.
These are coupled with the Elesa wireless spindle positioning system which enables faster and more reliable machine set up by use of a wireless connected profile controller, which displays the initial set up values on each of up to 36 electronic position indicators. The operator can simply choose the appropriate menu then quickly re-set 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.
Their IP67 CFSW safety switch and hinge unit also on display facilitates safe operation of access panels and control equipment.
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, and so lower total costs.
