Angle encoders with integral bearing
Thanks to their very high system accuracy, angle encoders with an integral bearing are ideal for demanding applications such as machine tools and printing machines.
Modular angle encoders
These angle encoders can be perfectly matched to the application, offering a choice of optical or magnetic scanning and numerous combinations of circular scales, scale drums, and scanning heads.
Angle encoder modules
The optimal interplay between these angle encoders and their high-precision bearings results in high measurement and bearing accuracy, very high resolution, exceptional repeatability, and the added benefit of easy installation.
