The LIF 400 1D plus scale series of two-dimensional encoders for the photonics industry features a frictionless design with gratings in two dimensions. The encoders include models with two or three scanning units for simultaneous measurement in both the X and Y directions. The scale allows measurements for linear guiding and thermal drift errors during stage or machine movements. This allows processing and immediate compensation of guiding and thermal drift errors.

CEC centrifugal impellers combine a backward curved impeller with an electronically commutated (EC) external rotor motor, reducing power consumption and improving overall performance. Offered in housed or non-housed units, the impellers target air-moving applications for cooling motor controls, electronics, power converter cabinets, and modular air conditioners. Featuring 1 to 10 VDC or PWM motor control, their dual frequency motor is available in 50 and 60 Hz models. Their permissible ambient temperature ranges from -4° F to 104° F. Air-moving capacities can reach 8,050 cfm. They are UL & CE approved.

Decoring Cut tooling enables honeycomb composite panels drilling and skin undercutting for core removal in a single step, all while maintaining tight tolerances and avoiding delamination. After a plunging operation, the end tool interpolates to undercut the skins at a set depth. The diamond-shaped tooth design ensures removal and pulverization of the material while preventing any push-back of typical tooth designs. It is available in solid carbide or HSS cobalt powdered metal, and in industry-standard insert diameters. Lengths are available for cutting standard ¼-, ½-, ¾-in. panel sizes. A PVD multi-layer coating improves their performance and service life.

The LP 100 gantry robot system is used in engine and gearbox manufacturing to handle small, lightweight components including cylinder heads and gearbox housings, alternative drivetrain units like electric or hybrid engines, fuel cells, and other components of a similar size. Two ‘high speed’ and ‘high load’ versions are available, it can fit with inline production concepts to support work pieces traveling across several production machines. Flexible set up allows for features like such as a wider clearance between uprights.
