Positioning Measurement Systems

HIWIN Corporation’s positioning measurement system integrates a linear guideway with a magnetic encoder. This solution offers the high stiffness and rigidity of a guideway combined with the high precision of a magnetic encoder. The encoder is a non-contact measuring sensor and the magnetic strip is embedded to prevent possible damage caused from external debris, these features ensure a longer service life. Hiwin also offers standalone read heads if space is limited or a guiding system is already in place.
