The sensors are touchless magnetic angle sensors with a permanent magnet that can be secured to an application's rotating shaft, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.
When applications call for precise movement of product, then Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyor is the answer.
ST Robotics recently released a high-speed version of its five-axis vertically articulated R17 robot arm at the low price of $18,600.
