Established in 1975, Greenbank Machinery & Plant Ltd, based in Cheshire, specialises in the supply of Tacho Generators and Encoders to the industry. With many years of experience in the field of speed sensing, staff at Greenbank Machinery & Plant Ltd know the industry inside out and work hard to put together a fantastic range of quality products for their customers. Greenbank Machinery & Plant Ltd also stocks a large range of Tacho Generators as well as being the sole UK distributor of Italsensor (Tekel Srl) incremental encoders. Greenbank stocks a large supply of products in-house to ensure fast delivery to its clients worldwide. It also offers an in-house spares and repairs facility of which magnetic calibration is part of the repair process.

Absolute Hollow Shaft Encoders - Visit our website

Hollow shaft encoders (absolute encoders) are used for a wide range of industrial applications and are extremely popular within the lift industry. These encoders are available in a range of sizes to suit different customer requirements and can be supplied with additional offerings to meet the needs of more demanding environments. At Greenbank Machinery and Plant Ltd, we know all there is to know about absolute hollow shaft encoders and are on hand to provide customers with all the information and advice needed to ensure suitable encoders are selected for different application types.


Absolute Singleturn Solid Encoder - Visit our website

Alongside our absolute hollow shaft encoders, we also supply absolute singleturn solid encoders. These encoders feature Absolute Gray Code or Reflective Binary Code, Binary Coded Decimal and Natural Binary digital outputs to chart accurate angles or position of a swivel. They are widely used in advanced types of machinery such as solar panel systems, forestry vehicles, medical equipment, CNC machines, mining drills and more. At Greenbank Machinery and Plant Ltd, we supply Absolute Singleturn Solid Encoders manufactured by the Italian company, Italsensor. We are pleased to be the sole UK distributor of Italsensor’s tried and tested encoders – please visit our website to view the range.


Absolute Solid MultiTurn Encoder - Visit our website

At Greenbank Machinery and Plant Ltd, we offer a fantastic selection of top quality encoders including our range of Absolute Solid MultiTurn Encoders. Within this range is our TKM100 absolute multi-turn encoder. This tough and robust unit weighs approximately 1.5 kg and has been designed for use in applications that require measurements to be taken over single revolutions. It is suitable for operation in temperatures ranging from -10 degrees celsius to 70 degrees celsius. To find out more about the TKM100 MultiTurn Absolute Encoder and the rest of the range, please head over to our website, or contact us directly at Greenbank and we will be happy to help.


Incremental Blind Shaft Encoders - Visit our website

Blind shaft encoders can improve economies in a variety of applications, including industrial and robotics, by providing accurate and efficient speed and distance statistics.  Greenbank currently supply eight different models of blind shaft encoders each of which suits an array of applications through varying shaft options, voltage supplies and resolutions.  Full mechanical and electrical specifications for each model can be found on our website to assist your selection.

Incremental Solid Shaft Encoders - Visit our website

Our range of solid shaft encoders are designed to attach to the motor via a single solid bar shaft.  The range is extensive and features models with differing flange shapes and sizes as well as a choice of shaft diameters and encoder sizes. The majority of models are produced by Italian manufacturer Italsensor, however the range also features solid shaft incremental encoders from Wachendorff, Hubner and Precizika.  Alongside the standard selection Greenbank also supply more specialised versions such as programmable and magnetic  solid shaft encoders.

Incremental Hollow Shaft Encoders - Visit our website

Greenbank offer a range of hollow through shaft style encoders, which includes linear, hollow shaft and incremental encoders, each of which suits different applications, but are especially suited for withstanding the extreme conditions of harsh environments. The range of hollow through shaft encoders we stock come from leading manufacturers such as Italsensor and Precizika, ensuring only the best components. Take a look at our website for details of all our products within this category, including product specification sheets.

Shaft Mounted Tacho Generators - Visit our website

We also supply top quality tacho generators. These devices are used to accurately measure distance and speed and can also be known as electromechanical generators as they create electrical power via mechanical energy. Most tacho generators are powered by a turning shaft which creates the mechanical energy. Various types of tacho generators are available including hollow shaft, blind shaft and solid shaft. Please see our selection of shaft mounted tacho generators on our website. Product specifications, datasheets and images are displayed.


Hollow Shaft Tacho Generators - Visit our website

As mentioned above, we supply various tacho generators including hollow shaft tacho generators. These generators are widely used to measure the speeds of engines, motors and the equipment they are powering. This could be in the form of any time of moving part which needs to be monitored such as machine tools or conveyor belts. The hollow shaft tacho generator differs from the shaft mounted tacho generators in that it features a different design within the motor to allow the use of four magnetic poles instead of two. These devices are designed to accommodate lower load and lower tachometer voltages.


Motors & Drives - Visit our website

At Greenbank Machinery and Plant Ltd, we are always looking to expand our product range to meet the demands of the industry. As part of our expansion, we are pleased to have entered the drives market and offer a fantastic range of top quality motors and drives. Within this range we offer drives, motors, PLC’s, HMI’s, Fieldbus and motion control component parts, or complete systems. With many years of experience in the industry, we are pleased to offer first class solutions at competitive prices and are able to solve the most complex of control and process issues if they arise.


Sensors - Visit our website

Please head over to our website to view our fantastic selection of sensors. We offer a range of sensors to suit different customer requirements. Examples of the range include Brushless Resolvers, Diffuse Sensors with Background Suppression, Diffuse Sensors with Intensity Difference, FA Solver Built-it Resolvers, Acceleration Sensors and many more. For further information, or advice regarding your specific project requirements, please give us a call at Greenbank and we will be happy to help.
