MRA-F wire draw mechanism from Sick Stegmann Inc. combines with an absolute or incremental encoder for length measurement up to 50 m.

Dayton, OH —MRA-F wire draw mechanism from Sick Stegmann Inc . combines with the company’s absolute or incremental encoders to provide linear path solutions for a wide range of applications with measuring lengths up to 50 m. Said to be designed to meet the demanding requirements of automation technology, the product features a simply mounted encoder, a high-precision measurement drum, stable spring return, highly flexible steel rope, and steel dirt removers for reduced wear and increased product life.
The MRA-F works by way of drum rotation, which is proportional to the length being measured. Movement is counted by an encoder and converted to a measuring signal, providing high-resolution position or distance information for linear measurement paths, even under difficult ambient conditions.
Wire draw mechanisms with absolute or incremental encoders are suited for a variety of industries and applications, including crane, drilling, and excavator systems; presses, punching, and injection machines; weir systems and locks; woodworking and stone processing machines; and machinery construction.
