Linear Encoders for Production – Integrated Measuring Machines

Up to now, measuring machines have operated in a largely familiar, exactly defined environment, since their performance is significantly determined by the signal quality and accuracy of their linear encoders. Now, with the trend toward production-integrated measuring machines, the measurement device in use should be clearly reviewed.
