    Retooling with packaging industry trends
    Positioning systems from halstrup-walcher work without batteries and they require no maintenance. Our ISO 14001:2015 certification verifies that our company generally takes environmental issues into consideration in all of its corporate decision-making.
    Industry 4.0
    Our positioning systems can be integrated into the machine system using any control method. Each drive is an independent cyber-physical system. The absolute encoder is the sensor for determining position, while the gearbox, motor and motor control unit serve as actuators for moving the positioning object. Along with the decentralized on-board intelligence, the positioning systems can be integrated into machine processes.
    The trend toward customization in the packaging industry is resulting in decreasing lot sizes. Format changeovers must be quickly, reproducibly, without quality losses and minimizing machine downtime. The systems adjust every axle simultaneously.

    Joint venture: Short stroke linear drive http://ky.to/www.halstrup-walcher.de/en/...
    The product benefits from the expertise of both companies. Ketterer Antriebe is responsible for the motor’s design while halstrup-walcher uses its strength in electronics and software development. The result of the collaboration is an intelligent linear drive tailored to specific market requirements. Thanks to the compact design and highly dynamic properties, the KuLi drive is suitable for various automation engineering tasks. Its advantages as an electric drive make it an appealing alternative for the current pneumatic cylinders in conveyor technology, logistics and special-purpose machine construction. The KuLi short stroke linear drive is available in a variety of versions: The upstroke speed, lifting power, stroke length and connection can be selected to suit the application.

    Integrated PSD direct drives with PROFINET and EtherCAT http://ky.to/www.halstrup-walcher.de/en/...
    The PSD direct drives now have interfaces for PROFINET and EtherCAT. The compact drives are thus compatible with four bus systems altogether: CANopen, IO Link, PROFINET and EtherCAT. Other bus interfaces are realised on request. The PSD product range has a modular design with numerous models and options. Along with the compatible bus interface, the maximum torque, IP protection class, connector alignment and the optional hollow shaft can be selected. The step motors with Nema 17 and 23 reach up to 1000 rpm. All relevant subsystems for automatic format changeover are already integrated in the intelligent drives. The direct drives are thus optimally suited to frequent format changeovers in machines. halstrup-walcher is exhibiting the PSD product range at the SPS in Nuremberg, at Booth 131 in Hall 4.

    Integrated drives for format changeover http://ky.to/www.halstrup-walcher.de/en/...
    To provide optimum support for machine builders, halstrup-walcher has developed a flexible modular system. In its intelligent drives, the motor, motor control unit, bus communication and an absolute measuring system without battery are integrated. These are complemented by a variety of monitoring, control and feedback functions. The PSx 3-series, which has been established for many years, is based on durable  EC motors. The electric drives can also be provided with an NRTL certificate. The PSD product range uses stepper motors, which can also be used without gears and achieve higher speeds.  The optional hollow shaft allows the drives from both these product ranges to be mounted on the spindle without a coupling.  With torques of 1.. 25 Nm, the compact drives can even adjust larger masses. The positioning systems have interfaces with all common buses, including IO-Link, to ensure easy integration into machine control systems.

    The new PS17 differential pressure transmitter
    The PS17 measures differential pressures between ± 50 Pa und ± 10 kPa. The measurement precision of the piezoresistive silicon sensor system is extremely high at ± 1% of the final value and remains highly stable over the long term – a marked improvement over its predecessor, the PS27. The switchable version of the PS17 allows customers to select the right measurement range from four different options. In addition, the output signal can adjusted within a range of 0/4 .. 20 mA or 0/2 .. 10 V via a DIP switch, or, if desired, as a root-extracted characteristic curve. Users can also fine-tune the final value by ± 5% and perform zero-point calibrations. The new, robust housing snaps into place, making it easy to open – and that saves time. Two horizontal and vertical holes drilled into the housing exterior allow users to mount the unit on a wall without a mounting plate. The device can also be mounted on top-hat rails. Its protection class of IP65 means that it can be used indoors or out

    New range of positioning systems https://ky.to/www.halstrup-walcher.de/en...
    halstrup-walcher announces the launch of a new range of products with direct drives. These mechatronic systems with integrated control, bus interface and optional absolute measurement system (without battery) are ideal for adjusting machine axles. The stepping motor with integrated control and bus communication provides the capability for higher speeds at low torques. This offers similar performance to servo drives with controllers and encoders – yet in a far more compact design. When developing and manufacturing electronic and software components, halstrup-walcher can draw on more than 20 years of experience in the area of positioning systems. The company will also be incorporating its trusted hollow shaft (optional) in the products. This can be mounted directly on the spindle. In addition, the drives will be produced in two designs that allow for horizontal and vertical installation as well. The first devices will be available in early 2018 with an IO-Link interface and CANopen.

    Positioning systems with IO-Link interface https://ky.to/www.halstrup-walcher.de/en...
    halstrup-walcher is the first supplier of decentralised actuators also to provide positioning drives with an IO-Link interface.  After all, this peer-to-peer connection can also be used to control actuators. The positioning system can be connected with IO-Link using just one standardised, unshielded M12 cable. Gateways in a different position can then be used for conversion to any customer-specific field bus.  The so-called "time stamp" process  is very useful, especially for synchronising the start of various positioning systems. The format changeover is always started at the desired time and the control module can transmit the corresponding run commands in good time –positioning systems with IO-Link are then even able to start when the time stamp has been reached.  Using the same communication (IO-Link) on the level of the sensor and actuator in every version of a machine reduces complexity and thus simplifies setup and saves money.

    Calibration equipment
    New flow rate calibration laboratory https://ky.to/www.halstrup-walcher.de/en...
    Regular calibration of volume flow and mass flow measurement systems is essential if you want to record air consumption or ensure constant provision of adequate ventilation, e.g. to protect employees or the environment when handling hazardous materials. To guarantee that such systems provide reliable data, the calibration laboratory operated by Halstrup-Walcher Group has recently gained accreditation for flow rate meters and the medium of air. The laboratory is perfectly equipped for calibrating air-conditioning and process air meters and certificated by Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) in compliance with DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025:2005. This now authorises the company to offer calibration services in accordance with DAkkS standards. The DAkkS calibration certificates issued upon completion of the process document the function of the measurement systems and are accepted as proof that they are functioning correctly.
