Heavy duty industry

Encoders for iron and steel, marble, glass and ceramics processing industry

Construction sites, factories, quarries or foundries where “heavy” materials like metals and stones (iron, steel, marble, granite, glass and ceramics etc.) are processed, are harsh environments where big amounts of dust and micro-particles are released in the air, chemical products and liquids are employed and where machines operate quite often at extreme temperature.
For these reasons the machinery used in this type of industries must be very solid, resistant 

to a wide spectrum of temperature as well as being very reliable, accurate and easy to operate to guarantee the safety of the workers and the production efficiency of the processing plants.
Eltra offers numerous solutions of high speed and resolution optical and magnetic encoders, developed to endure in the most difficult circumstances and to ensure the maximum performance and precision of production systems.
