Flush pull handles from Elesa save time and money on assembly of sheet metal lift-off panels and doors

10/02/2015

The newly announced Elesa PR-CH flush pull handles save time and money on assembly of the sheet metal lift-off panels and doors commonly used on machinery of many types to cover equipment as a protective element. They are suited for machine access panels and guarding – also for maintenance doors covering internal mechanisms or electrics – so preventing unauthorised personal interaction with dangerous moving parts or electrical systems.

The traditional configuration would involve two handles and one or two quarter-turn locks – whereas Elesa’s new PR-CH design incorporates a quarter-turn lock/latch into the handle which has a quick snap-in assembly feature. This greatly simplifies installation as the separate quarter-turn locks are no longer required and their time consuming fixing can be eliminated, saving on installation costs as well as purchase of separate components.

New Latch clamps with safety locks from Elesa UK

08/12/2014

Elesa MTL and MTB series latch clamps provide quick action adjustable clamping and release with an integral 2 stage button mechanism to prevent accidental opening by “knocking off” of the lever. This safety feature is positioned so that single hand operation is maintained.

MTL series are heavy duty units (up to 15000N holding force) in black oxide finished steel to facilitate welding in situ - MTB series are in black oxide steel or stainless steel offering forces up to 7500N. Both types are particularly suitable for equipment and applications subject to strong vibration stresses, where it is necessary to ensure secure clamping, including the prevention of accidental opening. Engaging and disengaging of the safety button and the clamp can be done together with a single handed action, leaving the other hand free to manipulate the workpiece. The length of the hook element in each case may be simply adjusted to suit the size of the clamped component or the clamping force desired. The MTB-SST in AISI 304 stainless steel is particularly suitable for use in those situations subject to specific hygiene regulations, such as food processing, or the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.   The complimentary MTR series are particularly appropriate for applications such as use on static or rotational moulds for plastic products, where fast clamp/release is important without the requirement for a safety lock. 

Versatile new IP65/67 Direct Drive Electronic Position Indicator from Elesa UK

21/11/2014

Elesa’s new IP65/67 DD51-E electronic position indicator offers all the usability and accuracy of its forerunners plus added versatility and convenience in a single compact specification. The DD51-E is a battery powered direct drive unit which can be used on machine shafts in any position to provide a reading of the absolute or incremental positioning of a machine component. It is therefore suited to machines with rotating shafts such as roll handling e.g. refinishing, paper, card and other packaging production, printing and incremental feed equipment, where accurate rotation indexing is essential.

The DD51-E incorporates a 5 year life lithium battery and may be programmed to display linear measurements in metric or imperial - or angular measurement in degrees and to allow choice of reading after one revolution of the shaft, in addition the display orientation is user selectable to suit equipment layout. This versatility obviates the need to specify exact ratios, units and display parameters at the time of ordering. It of course also allows subsequent re-programming if the indicator is reallocated to new equipment or incorporated in a different process.

Elesa SLCK kit turns column level indicators electronic

15/08/2014

The popular Elesa HCK column level indicator series between 127mm and 508mm length can now be ordered or retro-fitted with an electronic sensing and control kit. The SLCK kit includes a magnetic float and two off sensors which fit behind the visual column – plus a pair of spacers to distance the unit away from the reservoir. An important feature to prevent ferromagnetic interference with the float.
Installation of the SLCK kit enables control of minimum and maximum level or operation of an alarm/light at the reference positions. This is considered of great interest for example in oil tanks where under or over fill may affect the associated equipment. On larger HCK columns it is also possible to install more than one kit to achieve automatic control of different levels within the system. Visual reading of the HCK scale is not affected by installation of the SLCK magnetic sensors which fit neatly behind the transparent polycarbonate tube and scale.

New ELEROLL modular roller track system from Elesa

17/09/2014

The novel ELEROLL modular roller track system from Elesa includes hard thermoplastic and soft-touch elastomer rollers plus omnidirectional ball rollers. It is unusual in that it is supplied as lengths of modular track which can be cut down or simply clipped together to suit the installation on-site.
ELEROLL is suitable for relatively light duty applications dependant on channel support – e.g. moving UPVC doors and windows, boxes of goods, luggage, container bins, sub-assemblies and finished products in Kanban systems and conveyor transfer layouts. Typically this may include manufacturing situations between machining stations and storage locations providing stock mobility to feeding and discharging benches in construction, machining, storage and picking systems, packaging machinery etc. for plate and panel handling.

The Elesa modular roller system is based on a standard aluminium channel extrusion which accepts pre-assembled modular roller sets of polyamide or thermoplastic polyurethane (soft touch for delicate materials such as glass and wood), plus ball element sets for omnidirectional movements. Roller sets come in standard 270mm lengths which clip into the aluminium channel.

High accuracy non-contact magnetic measuring position indicator from Elesa UK

25/09/2014

The new magnetic measurement system from Elesa utilises a magnetic band and non-contact sensor to provide highly accurate repeatable measurements for industries such as furniture/wood working, window frame assembly, steel frame builders etc. Typically the magnetic strip is fixed to the machine bed, e.g. cross cut saw or milling equipment, with the sensor and indicator mounted on the travelling feed part. The system can be set up for simple linear measurement in millimetres/inches and for angular measurement in degrees, with an accuracy of 0.1mm and repeatability of 0.01mm.
The Elesa system is characterised by extremely easy assembly, and by virtue of its simple accurate measurement it enables precise positioning alignment so reducing time by keeping machinery procedures to a minimum. The non-contact feature of the system means that it is not subject to wear and tear and therefore does not require maintenance. Similarly, without direct contact it is not affected by moisture, dust, oils and process residues – it is also insensitive to vibration for the same reason.
The position indicator MPI-15 may be set to read out measured values in absolute or incremental mode (to make relative measures within the measuring range), to select the unit of measure (mm, inches or degrees) and the counting direction and to set the offset values to compensate for tool wear. The MPI-15 incorporates a self-diagnostic battery check, sensor check and magnetic tape check. It is powered by an external battery 1.5 VDC and is equipped with a buffered memory during battery substitution. Battery life is 1 ½ year typical.
The magnetic band M-BAND-10 is easily assembled thanks to an adhesive backing and it is protected against mechanical damage by a stainless steel cover strip.

Panel Support Clamp from Elesa (UK) is judged “Most Innovative Auxiliary Equipment” at 2014 PPMA Awards

24/10/2014

Elesa (UK)’s Panel Support Clamp was winner of the “Most Innovative Auxiliary Equipment” category at the PPMA Show 2014 Awards – presented by Rory Bremner.

The judges were impressed with Elesa’s panel support clamp, stating that “whilst it appears to be quite a modest item compared with some other submissions, it solves a lot of problems with the fitting – and especially the repair and retro-fit – of safety guards”. They also liked the fact that the clamp is applicable to guarding situations in all industries.

The Elesa Panel Support Clamp enables easy installation of protective panels onto industrial frames in steel or aluminium as desired. It incorporates full component retention when open, as required by Machine Directive (2006/42/CE), plus rubber grip pads to ensure stable location without drilling of the panel. Panel installation with PC Panel Support Clamps requires only that the correct spacer be fitted to match the relevant panel thickness and then the hex keyed screw (M6) be tightened up – the positive grip characteristics of the clamp plus its method of fixing then ensure a secure fixing of the guard panel. In what was an extremely competitive year, with the highest amount of entries since the Awards were introduced, to make the shortlist in itself was considered a huge achievement, so to win the category was a wonderful recognition for Elesa’s innovative design of standard machine components.

New Latch clamps with safety locks from Elesa UK

New Latch clamps with safety locks from Elesa UK

Published on 08/12/2014

Elesa MTL and MTB series latch clamps provide quick action adjustable clamping and release with an integral 2 stage button mechanism to prevent accidental opening by “knocking off” of the lever. This safety feature is positioned so that single hand operation is maintained.

MTL series are heavy duty units (up to 15000N holding force) in black oxide finished steel to facilitate welding in situ - MTB series are in black oxide steel or stainless steel offering forces up to 7500N. Both types are particularly suitable for equipment and applications subject to strong vibration stresses, where it is necessary to ensure secure clamping, including the prevention of accidental opening. Engaging and disengaging of the safety button and the clamp can be done together with a single handed action, leaving the other hand free to manipulate the workpiece. The length of the hook element in each case may be simply adjusted to suit the size of the clamped component or the clamping force desired. The MTB-SST in AISI 304 stainless steel is particularly suitable for use in those situations subject to specific hygiene regulations, such as food processing, or the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.   The complimentary MTR series are particularly appropriate for applications such as use on static or rotational moulds for plastic products, where fast clamp/release is important without the requirement for a safety lock.

Elesa SLCK kit turns column level indicators electronic

Elesa SLCK kit turns column level indicators electronic

Published on 15/08/2014

The popular Elesa HCK column level indicator series between 127mm and 508mm length can now be ordered or retro-fitted with an electronic sensing and control kit. The SLCK kit includes a magnetic float and two off sensors which fit behind the visual column – plus a pair of spacers to distance the unit away from the reservoir. An important feature to prevent ferromagnetic interference with the float.
Installation of the SLCK kit enables control of minimum and maximum level or operation of an alarm/light at the reference positions. This is considered of great interest for example in oil tanks where under or over fill may affect the associated equipment. On larger HCK columns it is also possible to install more than one kit to achieve automatic control of different levels within the system. Visual reading of the HCK scale is not affected by installation of the SLCK magnetic sensors which fit neatly behind the transparent polycarbonate tube and scale.

New ELEROLL modular roller track system from Elesa

New ELEROLL modular roller track system from Elesa

Published on 17/09/2014

The novel ELEROLL modular roller track system from Elesa includes hard thermoplastic and soft-touch elastomer rollers plus omnidirectional ball rollers. It is unusual in that it is supplied as lengths of modular track which can be cut down or simply clipped together to suit the installation on-site.
ELEROLL is suitable for relatively light duty applications dependant on channel support – e.g. moving UPVC doors and windows, boxes of goods, luggage, container bins, sub-assemblies and finished products in Kanban systems and conveyor transfer layouts. Typically this may include manufacturing situations between machining stations and storage locations providing stock mobility to feeding and discharging benches in construction, machining, storage and picking systems, packaging machinery etc. for plate and panel handling.

The Elesa modular roller system is based on a standard aluminium channel extrusion which accepts pre-assembled modular roller sets of polyamide or thermoplastic polyurethane (soft touch for delicate materials such as glass and wood), plus ball element sets for omnidirectional movements. Roller sets come in standard 270mm lengths which clip into the aluminium channel. The roller unit may then be fitted with end caps to enable clip fitting of longer runs together with container edging/side guides, brake sections and end stops.  

Standard channel is available in lengths from 270mm (1 module) to 2970mm (11 modules). Both the channel and modules are available from stock and may be trimmed to intermediate length enabling a custom unit to be rapidly produced and installed on-site.Roller sections may be mounted on their side with accessory brackets and supports so as to provide guidance where significant side loads are anticipated.

High accuracy non-contact magnetic measuring position indicator from Elesa UK

High accuracy non-contact magnetic measuring position indicator from Elesa UK

Published on 25/09/2014

The new magnetic measurement system from Elesa utilises a magnetic band and non-contact sensor to provide highly accurate repeatable measurements for industries such as furniture/wood working, window frame assembly, steel frame builders etc. Typically the magnetic strip is fixed to the machine bed, e.g. cross cut saw or milling equipment, with the sensor and indicator mounted on the travelling feed part. The system can be set up for simple linear measurement in millimetres/inches and for angular measurement in degrees, with an accuracy of 0.1mm and repeatability of 0.01mm.
The Elesa system is characterised by extremely easy assembly, and by virtue of its simple accurate measurement it enables precise positioning alignment so reducing time by keeping machinery procedures to a minimum. The non-contact feature of the system means that it is not subject to wear and tear and therefore does not require maintenance. Similarly, without direct contact it is not affected by moisture, dust, oils and process residues – it is also insensitive to vibration for the same reason.
The position indicator MPI-15 may be set to read out measured values in absolute or incremental mode (to make relative measures within the measuring range), to select the unit of measure (mm, inches or degrees) and the counting direction and to set the offset values to compensate for tool wear. The MPI-15 incorporates a self-diagnostic battery check, sensor check and magnetic tape check. It is powered by an external battery 1.5 VDC and is equipped with a buffered memory during battery substitution. Battery life is 1 ½ year typical.
The magnetic band M-BAND-10 is easily assembled thanks to an adhesive backing and it is protected against mechanical damage by a stainless steel cover strip.

Panel Support Clamp from Elesa (UK) is judged “Most Innovative Auxiliary Equipment” at 2014 PPMA Awards

Panel Support Clamp from Elesa (UK) is judged “Most Innovative Auxiliary Equipment&r...

Published on 24/10/2014

Elesa (UK)’s Panel Support Clamp was winner of the “Most Innovative Auxiliary Equipment” category at the PPMA Show 2014 Awards – presented by Rory Bremner.

The judges were impressed with Elesa’s panel support clamp, stating that “whilst it appears to be quite a modest item compared with some other submissions, it solves a lot of problems with the fitting – and especially the repair and retro-fit – of safety guards”. They also liked the fact that the clamp is applicable to guarding situations in all industries.

The Elesa Panel Support Clamp enables easy installation of protective panels onto industrial frames in steel or aluminium as desired. It incorporates full component retention when open, as required by Machine Directive (2006/42/CE), plus rubber grip pads to ensure stable location without drilling of the panel. Panel installation with PC Panel Support Clamps requires only that the correct spacer be fitted to match the relevant panel thickness and then the hex keyed screw (M6) be tightened up – the positive grip characteristics of the clamp plus its method of fixing then ensure a secure fixing of the guard panel. In what was an extremely competitive year, with the highest amount of entries since the Awards were introduced, to make the shortlist in itself was considered a huge achievement, so to win the category was a wonderful recognition for Elesa’s innovative design of standard machine components.
