Our optical scales for incremental and absolute linear distance measurements with various designs and accuracy classes are particularly suitable for the implementation in lathes, milling machines and other machine tools.
An optical scale is an optical distance measuring system and consists of a very finely divided ruler made from sanded glass, occasionally from glass-like plastic. The advantage of glass and glass ceramic is the very low thermic expansion lowering the influence of temperatures fluctuations on the dimensional accuracy.
We distribute optical scales from our industry representation of the company Givi-Misure from Northern Italy, who look back on decades-long experience in the development and production of optical scales. With these techniques, resolutions of 0.1 µm and thereby accuracies of up to 1 µm can be achieved.
