Taking the measured approach to positioning

When it comes to the industrial applications that require a high degree of positioning precision, norelem has bolstered its offering of positioning solutions with the addition of several new measuring and display devices. Designed specifically to gauge both the position and angle, the devices help to provide the required level of accuracy in a plethora of mechanical engineering and sawing applications and play a vital role in the production of high precision components.

Some of the latest additions to norelem’s extensive range of positioning technologies available in the latest iteration of THE BIG GREEN BOOK include positioning displays, passive magnet sensors, magnet bands with coded increments and hollow shaft sensors with magnet scanning.

These standard components are all designed for maximum ease of installation and operability. This is made possible via the inclusion of a keyboard, which can be used to programme key information such as offset value, resolution, and switch-off time. In addition, norelem also offers shaft sensors used for magnetic scanning of shafts and spindles, which have been developed specifically to ensure maximum computability with the display, resulting in shorter configuration and setup lead times.

In response to demand for greater measurement accuracy across these application types, norelem’s range of positioning displays are accurate to within 10µm, with length measurement readings based on signals collected from the magnet band. By maintaining distances of up to 2mm between the sensor and band as part of the design, this minimises strain on components by reducing exposure to dust, moisture and other sources of wear and tear, greatly extending the longevity of the product.

Marcus Schneck, CEO of norelem, explained: “In industry, precision is paramount and can make the difference between success and failure. We have continued to expand our offering of measuring and display devices, providing a variety of economical solutions which offer increased precision in components with tight tolerances. While greater accuracy, the devices are easy to use, saving time and effort during installation.”
