Rural manufacturing's comparative decline is multifaceted, but the solution may not be. One of the most impactful distinctions between today's most and least competitive manufacturers is access to reliable, high-speed internet.
Since the work in process (WIP) passes through the workstation every 3 to 5 seconds, the wireless module responsible for collecting data must provide sufficient speed to acquire signals (accurate to 0.1 seconds).
Nothing beats the positioning accuracy of linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN. Available in absolute and incremental versions and ideal for a variety of applications-including machine tools, semiconductor machines and medical machines-these measuring solutions combat a variety of issues that erode precision.
