Renishaw’s optical encoders chosen for an advanced linear motor

December 2021

Constant velocity control is essential for many advanced industrial processes, but traditional motor designs give rise to cogging forces which generate ripples in the motor velocity. KOVERY Inc has designed a series of advanced linear motors, with integrated Renishaw encoders, that solve this problem.

Renishaw's QUANTiC™ series of incremental encoders are employed in KOVERY linear motors for commutation and position control. KOVERY also uses other Renishaw metrology products including the EVOLUTE™ absolute optical encoder and the XL-80 laser system for machine calibration. The encoders are critical components that give reliable position feedback in challenging environments.
