Erhardt+Leimer will exhibit new rotary drives and the new generation of the SMARTSCAN print image inspection system. Also on the E+L stand: systems and equipment for web guiding, web tension control and print monitoring. E+L specializes in automation and inspection technology and has an international sales and service network (booth D45, hall 4).
E+L has recently added rotary actuating drives to its actuator product range. The motors of type AD 11 and AD 12 marketed under the EL.MOTION brand are "intelligent" drives with an integrated controller. The drives can be used for position control, speed control, or torque control and are particularly suitable for applications where very quiet operation and long service life are key. Two external limit switches can be connected directly to the drive. The combination of distributed intelligence with a dedicated interface concept allows a decentralized drive topology to be implemented that greatly reduces wiring and space requirements in the control cabinet. Erhardt+Leimer makes a wide range of communication standards available for these drives. The AD series comes with EL.NET technology, which allows control tasks to be implemented without any need whatsoever for an external controller. E+L has a large number of sensors and input/output modules available for this. All the drives come with web-based management on board as standard. This means that when the motor is connected via Ethernet, it can be addressed from the browser of a PC, allowing you to check and adjust settings or query the current status. But that is not all: E+L also places great value on open connectivity and therefore also offers open access via Ethernet/UDP or certified standard protocols, such as Ethernet/IP, Profinet, and Powerlink.
New generation of SMARTSCAN 200% print image inspection
The new generation of SMARTSCAN can be installed in the familiar way on printing machines and rewinders. SMARTSCAN – or the MIS2 model to be more specific – is now faster and more compact, and it has a new design.
