RENCO Launches Redesigned Website To Benefit Rotary Encoder Users

RENCO encoders have a new home online with the launch of a redesigned website at www.renco.com .

SCHAUMBURG, IL (January 2016) - RENCO encoders have a new home online with the launch of a redesigned website at www.renco.com . This is of special interest to those that work with electrical drive technology, robotics, medical technology, automation, and building services engineering.


The new RENCO website features many helpful resources including a new rotary encoder product selection tool allowing users to easily identify the exact variation of encoder they are looking for. In addition, users can access links to 2D and 3D CAD drawings for all RENCO variants, mounting instructions and videos to ease installation, and a brand new catalog available for download.

The RENCO brand is currently highlighted by the R35i and RCML15 rotary encoders without integral bearing. These encoders use the optical scanning principle and offer the greatest possible functionality while featuring the smallest possible dimensions, thanks in large part to their simple and self-centering installation method with a patented slide-lock mechanism.

HEIDENHAIN produces the RENCO rotary encoders, and also sells them worldwide. This means that RENCO rotary encoders benefit from HEIDENHAIN's comprehensive know-how in the development and production of encoders. HEIDENHAIN develops and manufactures linear and angle encoders, rotary encoders, digital readouts and numerical controls for demanding positioning tasks. To date, HEIDENHAIN has shipped nearly six million linear encoders, over 15 million rotary and angle encoders, approximately 500,000 digital readouts and 260,000 TNC controls.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
