MINISCALE - integrated optical position measuring system
At Motek, SCHNEEBERGER will be presenting the world's first miniature guide with an integrated optical displacement measuring system, the so-called MINISCALE.
MINISCALE is based on the MINIRAIL linear guide, which has proven itself on the market for years.
To enable MINIRAIL to be equipped with the additional measuring function, the rail is engraved with a scale (scaling 40 µm). The core element is a miniature measuring sensor integrated in the carriage.
The advantages of the design are obvious. Since separate measuring systems and intermediate parts are no longer necessary for the user, the design is simplified. In addition, assembly and disassembly are uncomplicated and thus less expensive. The compactness of the design also enables measurements directly in the guide.
The specifications of MINISCALE are:
Sizes (rail width in mm) 7, 9, 12, 15 and 14, 18, 24, 42
Accuracyup to 40 mm 4 µm (3 µm on request), up to 1000 mm +/- 10 µm
