Erhardt+Leimer has added a new pivoting frame for narrow-web applications to its product portfolio: the DR 2375 from the ELGUIDER product family is available with immediate effect for customers in the labeling and converting industries.

Commissioning of the new unit could not be easier. The key parameters are already pre-set on delivery, and a commissioning wizard guides the operator step-by-step through the additional input windows that need to be filled in. The unit is operated via a touch display (RT 4008). The installation situation is visualized for the customer on this display in exactly the same way as it presents itself to the operator on the actual machine.

The pivoting frame is also quite a bit more compact than comparable competitor models. Reference runs are no longer required thanks to the integrated absolute value encoder, which also ensures that the current position is saved in the event of a power failure. The use of roller bearings instead of slide bearings effectively prevents stick-slip. In addition, the cable glands are secured with strain relief to prevent cable breakage. The new unit also impresses in terms of control dynamics, with a control frequency of up to 8 Hz.

In addition to infrared sensors and ultrasonic sensors, the color line sensor FE 52 can also be used for web guiding. This sensor has a trigger mode, which means that there is no need for a continuous guiding criterion on the web.

As an option it is also possible to integrate a splice table with an adhesive roll and pneumatic web clamps.
