When Tidland launched the state-of-the-art and award-winning ESP – Electronic Slitter Positioning System – companies quickly took advantage of the value of automated slitter positioning to both increase throughput and improve slitter accuracy. Over the years we have upgraded software and components to stay aligned with new technology and we are pleased to present our most extensive upgrade yet – a new decoder assembly and encoder head.
Our engineers updated the Decoder Package assembly to replace the hose and fitting design with a new air manifold design for improved air system reliability and ease of maintenance. We updated the circuit board to state-of-the-art componentry and combined two boards into one, moving away from proprietary to off-the-shelf components. This significantly increases the overall life of the package and reduces your long term maintenance costs. We have also developed an Absolute Magnetic Strip Encoder option that will enable you to upgrade your entire ESP to the latest encoder technology, reducing downtime for encoder maintenance and your long term maintenance costs.
*Upgrading to the latest software version is recommended for the Absolute Magnetic Strip Decoder Package.
