Beam Positioning System
With the Digital positioning system, the Heater Beams are mounted onto precision linear slides, and are clamped in position with pneumatic clamps.
In use, the required beam positions are entered onto a 5.7in colour touchscreen on the machine table. A stepping motor drive moves the heater beams to position, with absolute position encoders at either end of each beam verifying the actual beam position.
Sets of beam positions can be named and stored, along with cycle times, for ease of recall at any time.
For Digital machines with Rear Tables, the configuration of beams from the front and the rear is also stored with each setting.
