HIPERDRIVE HUB - Reduces the cost of automatic size change by 30%
A reduction in average batch sizes and the requirement to document production processes particularly for pharmaceutical products has led an increasing number of machine manufacturers to look into the implementation of automatic size change systems on their machines. The high cost associated with traditional approaches has been prohibitive. Now the HIPERDRIVE HUB offers a practical means of lowering the cost and making automatic size change more affordable.

Groundbreaking absolute encoder with minute disc
The new SKS/M36 Standalone absolute encoder utilises SICK|Stegmann's unique MiniDisc technology to offer users unrivalled levels of performance. At its heart is a code disc with a track radius of only 2mm - a tenth of the size of the disc used in encoders of a comparable accuracy. MiniDisc technology enables the production of not only a much smaller encoder but also an encoder capable of withstanding higher levels of shock and vibration.
