Machinery in the food and beverage manufacturing industry includes a wide range of operations such as processing, filling, packaging, material handling, and labeling. Depending on the particular stage of the manufacturing process and the operating environment, encoders in food and beverage manufacturing may need features such as stainless steel housings, high or low temperature ratings, or IP67 environmental sealing.
Some examples of encoder applications in Food and Beverage manufacturing include:
A Model 25T with the corrosion-resistant housing option provides conveyor speed feedback for package filling and sealing.
Encoders monitor belt speed and direction, as well as the position of objects on the conveyor.
Encoders ensure that the item to be filled is in the correct position before the filling mechanism activates.
