Automation Continuum Inc. is the authorized distributor for FIAMA, offering the best in:

Position Indicators
Mechanical Position Indicators
Digital Position Indicators
Electronic Position Indicators

FIAMA position indicators are suited for new OEM designs and are also a better replacement for most other brands.  FIAMA position indicators offer distinct advantages over competitive models, including:

  •  Ultrasonically welded bodies (not snap-together fitment)
  •  A wider variety of gear ratios, including custom ratios not listed
  •  A wider range of available bore sizes (including stainless steel versions)
  •  Offer complementary mating products (clamping plates, bearing supports, gearboxes, etc.)
  •  A bore-to-body matrix design for better dirt immunity
  •  Automation Continuum stock FIAMA for OEM customer usage
  •  Italian made quality (not a cheap knock-off copy)
  •  Short lead times when not in stock
  •  Very attractive pricing

Position indicators are used directly to display a linear motion (or an angle) obtained by a shaft rotation (typically a ball screw or lead screw).  Assembly is extremely simple through the hollow shaft; just insert the indicator on the shaft and secure it to the shaft with the supplied fixing screw. Through the hollow shaft, the rotation is directly transmitted to a digital meter by the means of a gear system (or electronic encoder) with a ratio suited to the screw pitch.  A lock pin, which is set on the back of the instrument, keeps the indicator body from rotating when the shaft rotates; only the bore rotates.  Always supplied with dust seal and lock pin.
➜ Available in a wide range of models and optional accessories.
