New AMO Speed Sensor Optimizes Milling / Turning Machines

Save money with the new WMK 3010S

The new WMK 3010S rotational speed sensor from AMO is now available, and provides users of milling and turning machines a better option for operation of their main spindle. Besides providing speed data, the WMK 3010S also supports the capturing of operating status data of that spindle thus optimizing many costs related to the operation of the machine.

Available in North America through parent company HEIDENHAIN, this new AMO speed sensor includes a USB interface which allows the operating status of the spindle to output to the machine control. This enables the user to record rotational speed, operating time, temperature and more. Put these factors together, and overall performance and uptime expectations are optimized.
The rugged, inductive, incremental scanning head on the WMK 3010S is available with a 1Vpp interface. It has a minimalist modular design, allowing this IP67-rated product to be installed in existing customer designs without significant modifications. It is available in the common industry line count increments and can be operated up to a max of 50,000 rpm.
Many useful features are offered in the WMK 3010S including:
• Inductive Scanning
• IP67 protection
• Max speed of 50,000 rpm
• Integrated acquisition of operational data
• Offline output of data via USB
• Low Cost

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
