Positioning of the gripper arm on garbage trucks

The exact position of the gripper arm must be recorded to enable automatic emptying of waste containers. Therefore the compact AHS/AHM36 absolute encoder determines the rotational movement on the gripper arm. Thanks to the high repeatability, the HighLine wire draw encoder reliably measures the extension path of the gripper arm. The gripper arm can now be positioned exactly by means of the recorded sensor values.
