Magnetic scales for linear and rotary applications

Quality needs experience

The reason for the production of our first magnetising system for writing on scales fits into one word: Own demand! The commissioning of the plant over 20 years ago was the birth of a new business field for ITK. Since then, the demand for solutions from OEM customers has increased year after year. We meet this demand with high-precision, high-performance systems – developed and approved in accordance with the Machinery Directive. Today, a team of experts from various disciplines at ITK implements special projects based on the pillars of “Positioning. Measure. Control. Move. are the cornerstones. Circular and linear magnetising systems make up the largest share.

LMP Magnetisierungsanlage

LMP linear magnetisation machines

The linear magnetiser from the LMP family can be used to describe scale materials made of different materials. These include.

  • hard magnetic,
  • soft magnetic,
  • elastomer-bonded and
  • plastic-bonded materials.

The magnetising system is designed for flexibility. Basically, scale lengths can be written in the standard variant from 50 mm up to 2000 mm; other lengths are possible on request. Do you want to produce scales with different magnetic and geometric properties? No problem: The interchangeability of the write and read heads offers you almost unlimited possibilities, all of which you can use with just one system. The magnetising systems are preferably equipped with positioning axes in linear motor technology and ITK’s own measuring systems. Spindles for locomotion are dispensed with. This offers additional convincing advantages:

  • Inaccuracies due to backlash are eliminated.
  • Scales can therefore be produced with very high precision and produced at a high cycle rate

 

The use of a laser interferometer reference measuring system allows the “poles” to be stamped into the scale material with a high degree of accuracy – reproducibly. A high reject rate is avoided – the best prerequisite for opening up new fields of application.

We manufacture our systems according to customer specifications. On request, we can provide you with a turnkey solution according to your specification. This can look as follows:

RMP Rotary Magnetising Machines

As with the LMP family, materials made of hard magnetic, soft magnetic, elastomeric and plastic-bonded materials can also be described with the rotary magnetising systems. The poles can be arranged radially or axially.

With the RMP magnetising system you can generate scales with different diameters – and this in a wide range. The clamping systems can be exchanged without any problems. So you can realize diameters between 3.5 mm to 500 mm in no time. By using a high-precision encoder system as a dimensional standard, the poles can be stamped into the scale material with a high degree of accuracy. The result: scales with high accuracy can be produced reproducibly.

Once the writing process is complete, each individual scale can be clearly marked. Barcodes can be applied directly to the scale for this purpose. Your advantages:

  • There is no risk of confusion.
  • Traceability is guaranteed – even after many years.

Proven products. Proven know-how.

A magnetising system is only as good as its components. That’s why we only use high-quality, tried-and-tested products. You can rely on that. Benefit from almost 40 years of know-how in the development and manufacture of complex positioning systems and MR measuring technology. This will certainly give you a good feeling!

We manufacture our systems individually for each customer. On request, we can provide you with a turnkey solution according to your specification. This can look as follows:

  • CE conformity
  • customer software
  • commissioning
  • calibration
  • training
  • service/maintenance
