Magnetic Tape for linear measurement applications

Product Description:

Magnetic Tapes consists of an extruded plastic impregnated with Barium Ferrite glued to a stainless steel tape using a special type of glue. This stainless steel tape provides the rigidity to the magnetic tape. The special glue makes sure that the thermal expansion coefficient of the glued tape is same as stainless steel tape.

This tape is then magnetised by a fully automatic State of the art Magnetizer machine which gives a very good accurate Magnetic tape encoder, incremental as well as absolute system. These magnetic tape and reader head encoder system are highly resistance to oil, dust, dirt & vibrations, making it is an ideal system to be used under harshest conditions makes it most suitable for applications like Machine tool, Measuring instruments, Automation, Linear motors applications, Robotics, Material handling machines, Special purpose machines, Length Cutting machines, Dispensing machines, pick and place machines etc.

The Magnetic tapes are available in 1mm, 2mm, 2.5mm, 2.56mm and 5mm pole pitches. We also support custom pole pitches and custom reference mark patterns for any special applications. We also have Absolute magnetic tapes and its suitable reader head which supports maximum length of 60 meters.
