Machine elements designed around the needs of manufacturing

It has been announced that many of the extensive Elesa range of standard machine elements, designed around the needs of manufacturing in all industry sectors, will be on display at the 2019 Southern Manufacturing Exhibition. This will be taking place on 5th to 7th February at FIVE, Farnborough.

Featured on the Elesa stand F250 will be its 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 set up and readout coupled with the Elesa wireless spindle positioning system. This 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.

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.
