Linear encoder for
press brake applications
Fagor Automation introduces the PB series linear encoder especially
designed for press brake applications. The large forces required
in metal forming operations can provoke machine deformation
which in turn puts strain on the linear encoder
This strain will affect the performance of the linear encoder
and may lead to a reduction of accuracy or repeatability in
the forming operation.
To overcome this problem Fagor Automation has designed an incremental
linear encoder especially for press brake applications. The
linear encoder is supplied as a pre assembled unit. The linear
encoder and reader head are connected to the aluminum support
and it can be connected directly to the machine.
