IMS-A integrated measuring system

IMS-A integrated measuring system

High-precision guidance and measurement

The integrated measuring system combines ball rail and roller rail systems with an absolute length measuring system in our new IMS-A product. The system accuracy of this inductive measuring system is comparable to high-precision glass scales and is therefore ideally suited for use in external measuring systems on machine tools.
