Wireless spindle positioning system speeds accurate machine set up

Wireless spindle positioning system speeds accurate machine set up
Elesa have introduced a wireless spindle positioning system, which enables faster and more reliable machine set up by use of a wireless connected profile controller, and 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.
