Face-to-face engagement with visitors possible once more!
The team at Elesa are said to be all looking forward to meeting customers face to face once again at the Advanced Engineering Exhibition (3-4 Nov at the NEC, Birmingham) where the company will be exhibiting its wide range of standard machine components.
Especially of interest on Stand G10 are likely to be the Misati range of pneumatic clamps, UC-RF position indicator controller, LM Series EHEDG hygienic levelling feet and MVAS safety vertical toggle clamps, along with GLA roller slide guides for conveyors and VB three-arm hand knobs for clamping/adjustment of equipment.
“Misati high-performance pneumatic clamps offer exceptional clamping action in work holding or transport of assemblies in manufacturing operations,” states Elesa. “They are designed for robotic use, being easy to install, robust and well proven, with fast and reliable operation supported by simple power and control connections that enable rapid installation and set-up.”
Specialised pneumatic clamps
Pneumatic clamps from the range are specialised to match various industrial applications, such as punching, welding, fastening/assembly and painting, with modular accessories that are said to be convenient and readily interchangeable. These make fitting and adjustment straightforward, including gripper fingers for sheets or delicate materials, plus irregular shapes, hollow objects/tubes – also visually indicating open/closed/ready sensors.
“The UC-RF control unit from Elesa, when combined with DD series RF electronic position indicators, offers a PLC connected monitoring system which saves time on frequent changeovers of production formats,” adds Elesa. “They facilitate the correct adjustment of the target-current position of the machine parts and provide a safety system since, if a single DD52R-E-RF indicator is not placed in the target position, PLC doesn’t allow the beginning of the machine production cycle.”
Level playing field
LM.F-HD-SST levelling elements feature highly finished stainless steel parts to prevent dirt from adhering and to facilitate cleaning, the company further comments They are intended for use in environments where a high degree of hygiene is required and are certified according to EHEDG guidelines
“The surface beneath the base is protected by seal rings that prevent dirt from entering when the levelling element is mounted onto the floor. Likewise, the adjustable protective sleeve, which covers the threaded part of the stem, is fitted at the top and bottom with a protective seal to exclude dirt from inside the adjustable sleeve.”
