Schneeberger Lineartechnik AG (SCHNEEBERGER TECHNOLOGY): Distance measuring system integrated into the MINISLIDE micro frictionless table The MSQscale is based on our tried-and-tested MINISLIDE MSQ guideways and is available for our entire product range. This extraordinary innovation combines guiding and measuring functions in a highly integrated design. MSQscale makes the most compact applications possible and significantly simplifies assembly and installation. As a result, the MSQscale is an extremely economical solution which meets stringent technical requirements. The high-precision dimensional scale is part of the hardened guideway's surface. The sensor records the optical signals and supplies the raw signals. These are produced in the interface module in either analogue or digital format, and can be processed by the customer. The most common areas of application are: Medical technology Metrology Semiconductor industry Surface finishing Optical industry Pick & place SCHNEEBERGER offers a broad range of products, from linear and profiled guideways through to complete linear-drive positioning systems designed especially for their customer.
