Magnetic measurement accuracy reaches a single-digit micron
In additive manufacturing, robotics or metrology, getting precise and repeatable parts, movements or measurements requires very careful control of sensing heads and magnetic scales. The current trend is to move towards absolute magnetic measurement principles. With EU-funding of the MASMA project, BOGEN Electronic is addressing the lack of high-accuracy cost-effective absolute encoders on the market. They will convert existing absolute measurement solutions to modular encoders that will detect the absolute position of different scale patterns and increase their reading distances with new sensing technology and smart functions. The company targets accuracy down to a single-digit micron. The first products will be released in 2021.
