Linear Scales for Linear Motors

Linear Scales for Linear Motors

Linear Motor Systems require encoders that use optical glass scales. We design and manufacture linear scales that can be over 3 meters long and depending on the length they can reach up to ±1 μm/m accuracy. Scales are available in different substrate materials like soda lime, zerodur, BK7, Robax and others on request. In addition to linear glass scales, steel tape is used in some applications. Our steel tape can be over 10 meters long and reaches up to ±5 μm/m accuracy. Contact us for more information regarding linear scales and steel tape and different capabilities as well as custom tailor-made solutions.
