LandGlass: install and maintain the encoder of glass tempering machines

LandGlass gives some advice about how to install and maintain the encoder of glass tempering machines.

  1. Identify clear alignment marks on both the encoder’s shaft and the motion shaft. These marks, typically located on the end surface or body of the shaft, ensure the correct installation position of the encoder in relation to the motion shaft.
  2. Check and adjust the concentricity of the encoder shaft and the motion shaft. Ensure that both shafts are aligned on the same axis to prevent any form of vibration or misalignment.
  3. Secure the connection between the flexible shaft of the encoder shaft and the motion shaft, ensuring there is no looseness or detachment.
  4. Confirm the encoder’s electrical connections are correct. This includes connections to the power supply and signal input/output. Follow relevant electrical safety standards during the connection process.
  5. After making adjustments, conduct tests and verification to ensure the encoder is functioning properly. This includes checking the accuracy of the encoder’s readings and the smooth operation of the motion shaft.
  6. Record the encoder adjustment process and parameters for future reference. Perform regular maintenance and inspections to ensure the encoder’s continuous operation.
  7. Develop a corresponding preventive maintenance plan. Regularly inspect, clean and lubricate the encoder to extend its lifespan and maintain optimal working condition.
