Multicon spindle positioning system – Baumer

Fast and error-free retrofitting.

The modular Multicon spindle positioning system consists of a memory controller with recipe memory and spindle position displays with an absolute multiturn measuring system and an LCD position display for operator guidance. Multicon has a modular design and supports manual alignment as well as motorized alignment with a cordless screwdriver or drive motor.

Absolute position sensors dispense with the need for referencing and increase equipment availability after start-up. Our great expertise in mechanics, electronics, software and interfaces enables us to implement customized solutions.
