For applications requiring particularly compact and rigid bearings, Heidenhain presents the MRS angle encoder modules. They are optimized for low to medium speeds and medium loads. Especially for advanced metrology applications such as measuring arms or measuring robots, they are characterized by their increased tilting rigidity as well as high repeatability. The RSF angle encoder is a particularly flexible solution. The MBR closed scale ring for the MCR 15 and MSR 15 modular angle encoders is versatile thanks to its modular design. In addition, it can also be individually designed for the respective application.
The Vial Scanner by Schäfter+Kirchhoff (www.sukhamburg.com) was developped for the in-situ imaging of Drosophila pupae and for automated measurement of their size.
