Infinitely precise positioning with PSE, PSS, PSW positioning systems for automated format changeovers in machines

Precise format changeovers are an important priority for machine builders in Germany. Long before the phrase "Industry 4.0" entered popular usage, machinery developers were wondering how they could implement reliable adjustment mechanisms in their products while retaining good flexibility. Automatic format changeovers offer major advantages and provide an answer to this problem.

The modular positioning system concept for automated format changeovers – with flexible protection classes and bus communication as well as a range of torques for use in a wide range of applications.zoom

Automatic format changeovers are much faster than performing format changeovers manually and minimise rejection rates caused by adjustment errors. The format changeover can be reproduced perfectly, controlled at the touch of a button and also monitored using a number of parameters. The device's absolute measuring system (independent of gear backlash, no buffer battery) also makes the positioning extremely accurate.



Infinite possibilities: extended modular product system supports machinery manufacturers

halstrup-walcher supports machinery manufacturers with its 3-series modular positioning system, which offers all the relevant options for automated format changeovers:

  1.  Both the bus communication and IP protection class can be adapted to the specific customer's wishes. halstrup-walcher offers interfaces for 10 different buses – on board without any additional bus distributors. Moreover, the instruments are designed for 3 different IP protection classes (IP54: PSE, IP65: PSS and IP68: PSW). This generates noticeable savings when altering and adapting existing machine concepts for customer-specific machines.
  2. New higher torques improve and extend the performance range of the positioning systems. The new 3-series positioning systems now have even more power with 10, 18 and 25 Nm. From 2016, they will be able to move more mass than ever before. This means that the systems can be used even more flexibly without the need to make significant changes to the external dimensions.
