What types of applications use a laser encoder?

Laser encoders or displacement interferometers are often used in applications where the highest levels of accuracy are required.

Renishaw have been able to combine the ultimate performance of displacement interferometers with the ease of installation commonly applied to traditional tape and glass scale encoders.

By achieving this Renishaw has been able to develop a vast amount of experience in meeting the requirements for different customer applications. A sample of these applications and the advantages that a Renishaw system can offer can be found below.
