Solutions from Elesa+Ganter

Customised rotary controls

Elesa+Ganter’s rotary controls are designed to satisfy the most common applications. Different case materials, analog or digital-analog reading, gravity or positive drive movement, numerous different ratios and direction of rotation are provided as standard. The combination of all these options offers 1,000 possible configurations allowing the selection of the perfect rotary control for an application.

Position indicators are designed to set and regulate a wide variety of machine functions, such as flow and capacities, strokes and setting of speed variators in many different industrial sectors, including packaging, food processing, printing and paper processing, and woodworking machines.

Nevertheless, besides all the standards, the well known customer orientation and the great technical expertise in the production of Elesa+Ganter rotary controls has led, along the decades, to the enhancement of this historical line also by customizing dials by silk-screen printing upon special customer’s requests, thus making the Elesa+Ganter range even more flexible.

The company can develop a graphic solution to adapt standard dials to specific machine functions and provide indicators with special ratios to meet every customer’s needs. Customization such as marks, writings and symbols, special graduations, customer logos and plain dials can be done.

Roller elements

ELEROLL roller elements allow to create easily and quickly sliding and containing roller tracks for idle handling, suitable for several applications in different fields, such as feeding and discharging benches in construction machinery, storage and picking systems, packaging machinery, plates and panels handling.

The range offers roller elements made of different materials and dimensions. Black polyamide based technopolymer (RLT-U-PA) which guarantees high load capacity; grey anti-scratch and anti-trace thermoplastic polyurethane (RLT-U-TPU) are particularly suitable for handling delicate materials such as glass. Elesa+Ganter has recently introduced ELEROLL roller elements (RLT-U15) with reduced roller diameter of 14,5 mm in addition to the already existing series (25 mm).

The smaller diameter of the rollers allows packages with reduced weight and size to slide smoothly and consequently to generate less vibrations and lower noise improving the safety conditions for the operators.

Ball elements, for omnidirectional handling (RLS-U), made of white acetal resin based technopolymer complete the line. This solution is suitable when objects need to be rotated by letting the operator standing on the same side or when they need to be moved omni-directionally.

One of the main advantages of ELEROLL system is modularity. In fact, roller tracks can be easily assembled by fixing the roller or ball elements inside the aluminum profiles (RTL-AL).
The particular section of the profile allows the snap-in assembly of the elements without the need for screws or other fasteners. This feature also makes it possible to substitute even a single roller element in an easy and quick way, without disassembling the entire roller track.

In addition to roller elements, ELEROLL range includes technopolymer accessories, such as headers, containment edge, brakes, brackets and supports to customize the roller track whatever the application.
