Machine tool

Machine tool applications include a wide variety of power-drive machines that are used to shape or form parts made of metal or other materials, and the manufacturing process can be done in different ways.

We make encoders for machine tool.

Because of precise dimensional requirements of parts and heavy cutting forces exerted on the cutting tool, machine tool combine weight and rigidity with delicate accuracy. The requirement for machine tool encoders is therefore to be able to handle high speed operation and provide the best possible accuracy.

Why RLS magnetic encoders?


  • Industry standard output options
  • Accuracy to ±24 arcsec
  • Maximum speed to 30,000 rpm
  • Quiet operation even at high speeds
  • Low moment of inertia
  • Simple installation


  • Vertical machining centers
  • Press brake machines
  • Grinding machines
  • Laser cutting machines
  • Water jet cutting machines
  • Spindles
  • Rotary tables
