In rotary table applications, maximum precision counts when it comes to workpiece positioning. The exact mounting of the target wheel has a considerable influence on the achievable positioning accuracy, especially if the wheel has a small diameter. Thanks to the new i³SAAC-Precision-System from Lenord + Bauer, this can now be significantly improved.
Lenord + Bauer has developed a Cold Movement Detector. This is suitable for all rail vehicles which are to be equipped with an on-board "European Train Control System (ETCS)" including Cold Movement Detection (CMD) according to Baseline 3. Use of the new sensor eliminates the need to travel slowly so that the Radio Block Center (RBC) can determine the position reliably. The…
Motor spindles in machine tools are exposed to significant mechanical stresses. Undetected overloading can lead to failures. This can be prevented through predictive maintenance. The i³SAAC MiniCODERs from Lenord + Bauer help in the analysis of spindle data in order to predict the probability of failure. They also enable a fingerprint of the entire sensor system to be taken and…
The procedure for obtaining an operating permit for machines and production plants in the USA or Canada is rather like an obstacle course. UL-certified positioning drives from Lenord + Bauer make the machine acceptance process much simpler.
On 1 January 2020 Lenord + Bauer appointed a new chairman of the Management Board: Dr. Rudo Grimm now joins Dr. Matthias Lenord on the management team of the specialist in motion sensors and integrated drive technology.
Mileage acquisition is about more than just meeting the requirements of EU Regulation 445/2011: it paves the way for more efficient fleet management with minimised downtimes. Greater consequential damage can be avoided if wear parts are replaced according to mileage, enabling operating companies to reduce their repair costs.
The mobile tester from Lenord + Bauer optimises maintenance and servicing work. It can be used to check the operating behaviour of speed sensors with square-wave output signals (current and voltage), irrespective of the provider. Functional capability can be checked not only on sensors that are removed and stored, but also on sensors installed on rotating motors. Testing is…
The umati (universal machine tool interface) network was launched with the aim of driving digital networking forward by means of universal, standardised interfaces. Lenord + Bauer's contribution to the project is intelligent encoder kits that allow process data to be transferred in a uniform language. This delivers new approaches to condition monitoring.
Lenord + Bauer supports Industry 4.0 applications. The specialist in motion sensors and integrated drive technology expands the product range by a decentral control unit that allows the remote access to positioning drives. This opens up new possibilities for condition monitoring.
To meet the demands of modern industrial automation, Lenord + Bauer has developed a cascadable control unit for its positioning system. As the node in the Ethernet-based network, the modular SeGMo-Box takes over the control of up to 17 machine axes, enabling the individual modules to be coordinated flexibly with the machine.
