ELP Electric Linear Module
SCHUNK Inc. Posted 05/16/2017
The SCHUNK ELP can be adjusted in two simple steps making it the most user friendly electric linear module on the market! The end positions can be mechanically adjusted with a screw and the speed of extension and retraction is adjusted using rotary switches on the side of the unit.
Speed can be automatically adjusted, depending on extension weight and no shock absorber adjustment is necessary, because the drive automatically regulates the brake process. The ELP is practically wear-free with a long service life and low maintenance cycles. The control and power electronics are directly integrated into the module, and can be controlled by a fieldbus distributor or through digital signals.
SCHUNK is a German family-owned company and global player in one. More than 2,500 employees in 8 plants and 30 directly owned subsidiaries and distribution partners in more than 50 countries throughout the world ensure an intensive market presence. SCHUNK designs and manufactures an unmatched selection of clamping technology and gripping systems.
