Visitors to our booth can see our new absolute hollow-bore, the MA58H. And they can get a demonstration of the software on our new line of programmable Accu-CoderPro™ encoders, the shaft Model 25SP and the thru-bore Model 58TP.

Talking PACK EXPO with Encoder

Contributed by | Encoder

​Your company will be exhibiting at PACK Expo, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

Encoders are a vital component in packaging machinery, yet even some engineers are not well-versed in the options for their equipment. PackExpo gives us a chance to get face-to-face with the engineers, designers, and OEMs who need encoders for their applications.

 

What can a visitor to your booth expect to see this year?

Our Tru-Trac™ line of linear measurement solutions are always interesting for packaging applications. With an encoder and measuring wheel in one, compact unit, the Tru-Trac™ models are excellent solutions for many applications.

 

Any new products you will be introducing?

Visitors to our booth can see our new absolute hollow-bore, the MA58H. And they can get a demonstration of the software on our new line of programmable Accu-CoderPro™ encoders, the shaft Model 25SP and the thru-bore Model 58TP.

 

When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?

It’s interesting to see the developments and advancements in the technology of motion control. We keep a close eye on that so we can gear our product development toward what’s coming next.

 

PACK Expo has many educational sessions & Demo’s, is your company involved in any of them this year?  

We are not, but we have some interesting demos at our booth, including a dunk tank that completely submerges our Model 30M to demonstrate its IP69K seal!

 

When you book a booth for a tradeshow like this what are your expectations and what does your company hope to accomplish at the event?

At events like PackExpo, our expectation is to interact with people whom we would not have had an opportunity  to encounter through other channels. Our goal is to expose as many people as possible to our encoder solutions.

 

 

Encoder Products Company

Encoder Products Company

Encoder Products Company (EPC) is a leading designer and world-wide manufacturer of motion sensing devices. EPC began operations in 1969, producing a line of custom encoders (the original Cube series) from a small, home-based shop. Today, EPC is the largest privately-held encoder manufacturer in North America, producing the most complete line of incremental and absolute rotary encoders in the industry. Meeting the diverse needs of a wide range of global customers, EPC's core philosophy is that each and every customer deserves quality products, superior customer service, and expert support. Adherence to these principals has enabled EPC to achieve its goal of maintaining long-lasting customer relationships.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
