Measuring Wheel Encoders
Measuring wheel systems use a wheel to record linear movements, which they then convert to speed or position values. These systems do not require a reference point on the surface to be measured, making them well-suited to measuring a wide range of surfaces. The integrated spring ensures that the wheel exerts a consistent pressure on the surface, thereby guaranteeing slip-free measurement.
Measuring wheel encoders detect the speed of the print media and provide key information on the correct position for the print and the quality of the printed image. Whether you require clearly legible bar codes or high resolution printed check cards, gift cards, or brochures – accurate speed monitoring ensures print quality.
