Packaging Machine with Distance Indication By Means of Rotary Encoders [Movie]

Packaging machine with distance indication by means of rotary encoders

The packaging industry has a wide variety of systems - an example is cleaning, filling, closing and labeling bottles. In this application, bottle filling machines require precise measurement of the distance a conveyor belt travels. In this way, it is possible to position each individual empty bottle precisely at the required filling position. In these applications, incremental rotary encoders are used in order to determine the exact distance the conveyor belt has moved forward.
