Data sheet: RKLC incremental linear scale (pdf)
RKLC is a robust, 6 mm wide stainless steel encoder tape scale with a thickness of 0.15 mm. This allows the scale, when rigidly fixed to a machine axis, to become ‘mastered’ to the machine substrate, matching its thermal expansion coefficient and behaviour. Differential movement between the scale and the machine is thus minimised, improving the metrological performance that can be achieved with simple thermal system compensation.
