A manufacturer of dredging equipment needed a reliable and accurate way for the controls operator to see how deep the nozzle of the dredger was being lowered from a boom. The heavy-duty wire draw encoder was used for a direct measurement of the cable being spooled, and a simple to read display showed the depth.
Keeping track of tools, dies, transducers, breaker plates and everything else that goes into a plastics operation can be difficult. Barcode labels are often destroyed by high temperatures or abrasion. By using a laser marking tool to mark all of the individual components it becomes simple to scan parts in and out of the tool crib.
