Motion control: Long-length linear encoders look lively
Motion control: Long-length linear encoders look lively

Linear encoders provide direct position feedback to various machine tool and automation systems. Working in a linear format allows extreme length position measurement and control—critical for machine tool accuracy and production of precise large-scale parts. Focus here is linear encoders with 3-meter (about 10-ft) or...Read More
