Movement and position control of internal machine parts

Lances and manipulators for injection, sampling and temperature measurement move in several directions. The entire apparatus moves both up and down, as well as swivels around the vertical axis. The arm carrying the head bearing lance and sampling probe maneuvers up and down, left and right. Such probes can be inserted or retracted. Therefore accurate control and precise monitoring of both actual and end positions are necessary to efficiently operate the lance. Encoders and inductive proximity sensors can help the operator determine the exact positioning of the injection manipulator.
