  • Rotary encoders are offered in standard and high resolution

This unique component combination delivers incomparable precision along with a crash-resistant design.

Servo-Driven Rotary Stages deliver superior precision at high speeds. Servo-Driven Rotary stages are useful in applications across industries including:

  • Automotive Inspection
