||Elesa® original design
technopolymer plastic handwheels.
These handwheels have a recess in the hub to accept
EN 000.9 or EN 000.13 position indicators.
The screw is screwed into the anchoring pin and secured into position with the hexagon lock nut. The anchoring depth can still be adjusted to a certain extent.
Resistant to solvents, oil, greases and other chemical agents. Temperature resistant to 100° C (212° F).
If application requires occasional removal of position indicator, handwheel may be ordered upon request with a cover cap to shroud the empty recess.
Other modifications such as keyways, set screw holes, etc. available
||See our technical section for bore sizes,
other modifications and tolerances.
1. Turn the spindle to the starting point (0 position).
2. Set the length of the anchoring pin and lock in place with hex nut. Make sure that the pin does not sit on the drill hole base after mounting the handwheel.
3. Move the position indicator to the 0 position by turning the outer gear wheel to the 0 position.
4. Hold the (unmounted) handwheel so that the hole for the gear pinion is in the 12 o'clock position, and turn the crown wheel until the pallet pin is in the recess bore at the machine body.
5. Carefully insert the position indicator into the hand knob, making sure that the gear pinion engages in the crown wheel. The crown wheel may need to be readjusted slightly during this step.
Secure the position indicator with the thumbscrew, avoiding excessive tightening torque to prevent the housing from deforming.
6. Place the handwheel onto the spindle and fix in place with the thumbscrew.
7. Check by turning the handwheel to ensure that the starting position of the spindle and the 0-position of both pointers coincide. If necessary, take out and readjust the position indicator.
