Made in Germany

We offer transmissive and reflective encoder wheels on film basis. Resolutions up to 1,000 lpi and tolerances less than one micrometer for the bar-window ratio (optical) and up to 10 micrometer (concentricity inner hole for data track – mechanical) prove the high standard of our products technologically and regarding production engineering.

The production facilities in Europe and Asia ensure a very competitive cost-performance ratio, as well as fast and reliable delivery at constantly high precision. We develop and produce film encoder wheels exactly tailored to your needs:

As prototype, in low volume or mass production.

Bi-adhesive tapes, use of stabilizer discs and hubs expand the application area and possibilities of our film encoder wheels and make it easy for assembling.

When requesting a quotation of encoder wheels, the following information must be provided:

  • Outer Diameter (mm)
  • Inner Diameter (mm)
  • Counts CPR (counts per revolution)
  • Technology: reflective or transmissive
  • Accessories: Adhesive Ring or Hub

Made in Germany

We offer transmissive and reflective encoder strips on film basis with resolutions up to 1,000 lpi for very tight tolerances in every size and quantity. The highest precision in (nearly) every size. PWB encoders‘ code strips will be used in linear measurement systems for positioning systems, printers, scanners, plotters, textile machinery and numberless further applications.

Encoder strips made by PWB encoders GmbH are suitable for all conventional transmissive and reflective sensors. Regarding length, width and fastening solutions they will be customized according to the application. Prototype, low volume or mass production: Encoder strips made by PWB encoders GmbH convince by their competitive price, high functionality, as well as flexible and reliable manufacturing and delivery within a short time.

Applications of our encoder strips are extended by laminating and coating to protect the film material, as well as double-sided adhesive film and make adjustment and assembling easy. Customized prototypes are developed by our sample build service within a few days.
