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.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
