Positioning Drive

For space-restricted position and speed control applications, Baumer Ltd. (Southington, CT) has introduced a line of FlexiDrive positioning drives, which integrate absolute encoders with an assortment of motors, drives, gears and connectors. Offering 14-bit single-turn and 18-bit multi-turn resolution, Flexi-Drive systems deliver explicit and continuous position measurement even without power.

altThe drives can replace conventional drives on shafts, spindles, lead screws, rollers and webs and other moving parts found in machine automation. These systems can be used to determine the current position of tabletop equipment and measure the angle of cuts made with dirty, high vibration machinery. Applications include equipment and machinery used in motion control, textile production, printing, wood/timber processing, packaging, machine tool, medical, heavy equipment, and food and beverage processing applications.
