Digital Readouts / Linear Encoders for Manually Operated Machine Tools
For typical applications on manual machine tools such as milling machines or lathes, display steps of 10 µm or 5 µm are sufﬁcient. Such display steps are provided by the LS 300 and LS 600 series linear encoders with an accuracy grade of ± 10 µm per meter traverse.
The LS 1679 has been specially developed for press brakes. The basis for its high accuracy and repeatability is its precise glass scale and high-quality integral bearing. Thanks to the material of its steel track and steel roller bearing component pair it is very robust. There are many variants for connection to the machine frame, whereby the ball coupling offers the most degrees of freedom. Besides the standard resolution with 5 µm measuring step there is also a variant with 1 µm. For perfect mounting to the two C-columns there are variants with rightward and leftward cable outlets.
