Encoder discs work by translating motion
into electrical signals to obtain information of speed, position, or direction.
Typical applications include process and machine control, motor feedback,
factory automation, conveying, robotics, high-accuracy motion control,
positioning, and measurement applications.
Accuracy of control depends on the
resolution or counter per revolution of an encoder disc, which is determined by
the accuracy and consistency achieved. With electroforming, high resolution
encoders with high aspect ratio and excellent accuracy can easily be made.
Veco is the industry leader in precision
metal and offers ultra-high resolution encoder discs with unparalleled accuracy.
With the latest improvements in lithographic manufacturing techniques and
photosensitive lacquer, a significant higher aspect ratio can now be met. 1024
Slots can be realized in a 27-mm outer diameter disc with a thickness up to 60
– 70 microns. To improve the discs stability and durability, multi-layer is
also an option.
