Wachendorff Automation: Accurate positioning ... for marking systems

Measuring system LMSLA12 for marking and labeling

(Geisenheim, 04.05.2015) Accurate positioning ... for marking systems

The new measuring system LMS LA12 is a perfectly tuned, preassembled complete system for use in the field of marking and labelling. The system, consiting of an incremental encoder from the WDGI series, a encoder holder with 25 N contact pressure and a nonslip measuring wheel, is used to continuously measure the speed in many different types of marking systems.

The position of the product to be labelled is determined based on this measurement. As a last stage of the packaging process, the product labelling or marking system uses this exact positioning information to mark, among other things, cardboard, packaging, labels, bottles and other materials accurately and in a superior print quality. Codes of any kind, brand logos and graphic designs, batch and lot numbers and sell-by dates are applied using inkjet processes or special inks, for example.

The components of the measuring system are perfectly matched and guarantee utmost precision and a long service life:
- With their IP65/67 protection, the encoders in the WDGI series are designed and adapted for use in harsh industrial environments.
- With a permissible radial load of 220 N on the shaft, the measuring system can be mounted securely without slipping and has a high pretensioning force.
- The specially selected surfaces of the different Wachendorff measuring wheels guarantee non-slip properties in all areas of application - even at very high production speeds.
- The encoder holder is a special development with two slot holes for flexible mounting.
- Exceptionally high repeat accuracy combined with a very high resolution of the WDGI encoder of up to 25,000 PPR (0.008 mm/pulse) guarantees an accurate marking position.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
