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.

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.
