A lot of the extensive Elesa range of standard machine elements are designed around the needs of processing and packaging machinery manufacturers, and many of these will be on display at the 2017 PPMA Exhibition, which takes place on 26th–28th September in the NEC, Birmingham. Featured on the Elesa’s stand no E02 will be their IP65-7 direct dial digital position indicators with electronic mechanism for easy set up 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 LMH hygienic levelling feet 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.
