Light, strong with a low temperature coefficient - carbon composites have a wide range of applications in metrology. Meet carbon-scale, one of our company's most innovative products.


carbon-scale is the first of a series of robust long range linear scale products. They are currently available with measuring ranges from 300 mm to 1400 mm. Applications include manual mechanical measuring fixtures and automatic measuring machines. They are lightweight allowing their use in combination with robots or other dynamic measurement applications in the automotive, aeronautical and rail industries. Closed scale versions allow their use in rough industrial environments. An integrated reference point provides simple operation after startup. The integrated scale has a resolution of 0.0005 mm. The system repeatability is less than 0.002 mm. A range of supports and fixtures are available for various applications.

You can follow one example application using a 6-axis robot in this blog.
