40 years of WACHENDORFF

40 years of WACHENDORFF

A festive celebration as a thank-you

 

At the end of September, the Wachendorff Group celebrated this year's summer party - this year in the spirit of the company's 40th anniversary and therefore in a special setting.
CEO Robert Wachendorff had invited guests from all over the world. And they gladly and numerously followed his invitation to the Rheingau. More than 200 people - family, friends, companions, partner companies and last but not least employees with life partners - came together to celebrate a glittering anniversary celebration.
In his opening speech, Robert Wachendorff described the company's path in an amusing way: the germ cell, the family living room in Johannisberg in 1978; the move to Industriestrasse 7 in 1987; right up to the purchase of expansion space in 2018. It fitted very well into the picture that the very first Wachendorff trainee was present that evening as a guest of honour.
"You are the cornerstones of our worldwide growth", Robert Wachendorff welcomed the so-called technical distributors who ensure that the innovations "Made in Geisenheim" find their customers all over the world.
He honoured his employees as the "foundation of continuous, healthy growth from within" and thanked their relatives for "keeping their backs free in stressful times". He expressly emphasised that "this celebration is to be seen as a thank-you to his employees, and at the same time he is looking forward to many more years of cooperation in a spirit of partnership, because in recent years the basis for a successful future of the Wachendorff Group has been created at the Geisenheim location".
Such a celebration does not organize itself and Robert Wachendorff thanked the whole team in front and behind the scenes, which worked under the leadership of Berenike Wachendorff for half a year on this event.
The long lasting applause of all guests confirmed to the host and the organisation team that the right words and an optimal atmosphere had been found for this anniversary celebration.

New draw wire systems in product portfolio

New draw wire systems in product portfolio

Draw wire systems of Wachendorff Automation GmbH & Co. KG are robust and extremely compact. The compact dimensions allow the use in very narrow areas, which is often decisive.

The SZG series systems precisely measure the position or change in position of objects.

The quality-determining components of the Wachendorff draw wire systems are a precision measuring draw wire and an encoder adapted to the specific measuring task, which converts the change in position into a signal. 

The mechanics are optimally adapted to the incremental encoders of the WDGI58B series or absolute WDGA58B encoders from Wachendorff. The encoder is already mounted on delivery. 

The draw wire systems are quick and easy to install and, due to their reliability, are used in all areas of industry; very often in mobile hydraulics.

Most compact EtherCAT encoder

Most compact EtherCAT encoder in the world
Highly accurate and highly dynamic
Faster, more accurate and more compact

Wachendorff Automation has extended its absolute encoder series WDGA with the interfaces SSI, CAN, Profibus, by another Industrial Ethernet interface - besides ProfiNet - by the EtherCAT protocol.
Wachendorff can also offer the world's smallest encoder with bus cover in the EtherCAT interface with the WDGA58F design.
This saves valuable installation space and can therefore be decisive in new or advanced machines, as the trend towards more compact machines continues unabated. Despite this unique compactness, the high bearing loads guarantee a long service life and maximum durability.
The EtherCAT encoders from Wachendorff can be ordered as hollow shaft and clamp/synchro flange versions.
In the multiturn area, the EtherCAT encoders are equipped with maintenance-free and space-saving EnDra® technology. The innovative singleturn range with QuattroMag® technology provides a high resolution of up to 16 bits and an accuracy of +/- 0.0878° (12 bits).
This makes it possible to use robust and durable magnetic technology from Wachendorff in many areas where previously only high-precision and sensitive optical measuring technology could be used.
The new EtherCAT absolute value encoders with SM3 mode, distributed clock and Can over EtherCAT (DS 406 compatible) can deliver their high-precision position value with a cycle time of up to 50µs and are thus perfectly equipped for the latest controllers in the field. Plant and machine builders also benefit from the modular principle used by Wachendorff Automation for the design of customer variants, which can thus be implemented very quickly and cost-effectively.

PROFINET Heavy Duty Rotary Encoders

PROFINET Heavy Duty Rotary Encoders
Heavy-duty rotary encoders for PROFINET from the modular System


Wachendorff Automation has extended its WDGA absolute rotary encoder series in the PROFINET-IO field with the extremely robust WDGA 58D – designed for heavy-duty applications. 
As it has already been implemented for the SSI, CAN, PROFIBUS interfaces, the shaft of PROFINET encoder WDGA 58D can be loaded both radially as well as axially with max. 400 N. This is an absolute peak value and guarantees a long service life.
Wachendorff ensures an above-average service life, especially in harsh industrial applications, by carrying out extensive environmental simulation tests during development. This is emphasised by Wachendorff with a 5-year warranty that is unique on the market.
The PROFINET WDGA rotary encoder can be used in real-time applications in IRT mode due to its 50 μs internal dynamics.
In the multiturn field, PROFINET rotary encoders are equipped with maintenance-free and space-saving EnDra® technology. The innovative singleturn range with QuattroMag® technology provides a high resolution of up to 16 bits and an accuracy of +/ 0.0878° (12 bits).
This makes it possible to use robust and durable magnetic technology from Wachendorff in many areas where previously only high-precision and sensitive optical measurement technology could be used.
With its IP67 housing, the PROFINET WDGA 58D rotary encoder can be used in demanding industrial applications where contamination, very wide temperature ranges, strong vibrations and large bearing loads play a role.
Plant and machine builders also benefit from the modular principle strictly applied by Wachendorff Automation and the LeanQ production philosophy. This makes it possible to implement customer-specific variations quickly and cost-effectively for optimum integration into the application.
