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.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
