Encoders

Perfection in dimensioning

Encoders are being used for an increasing number of applications, so it should come as no surprise that there is an increasing market demand for custom-made encoder scales.

Nowadays, measurement scales are increasingly located directly on the shaft itself so that the rotation and translational motions can be read off directly. Thanks to its years of experience and expertise in this area, LASERTEC can use laser technology to engrave both measurement scales on a shaft. Even challenges such as engraving a 20 µ pitch does not present a problem.

Regardless of whether it involves an encoder scale on a shaft or strip or a 2d code on a plate, laser technology offers a very high level of flexibility and a wide range of options. Complex laser assisted processing can be carried out on practically any material, including glass and foil. This service has been successfully implemented for customers using high performance optical encoder products from Renishaw. This includes calibration of the system and instruments – an ideal symbiosis.’
