- Highest quality metal disks
- High bar counts
- Smooth and optically sharp edges
- Light and robust
Tecan's Photo Electro Forming process is used to produce the highest quality metal encoder disks available.
An advanced multi-level process produces optical slots of the finest possible resolution whilst selectively increasing the metal thickness of the disk, but not the slots. The result is a single rigid part, with localised thickness variations across its surface designed to suit both optical and mechanical requirements.
PEF disks are typically thinner, lighter and more robust than disks manufactured by other means. They feature slots with extremely smooth, yet optically sharp edges that facilitate a well-defined light pulse.
