Monitoring and control of the saw-wire with absolute encoders

Wire saws are only as accurate as their encoders. With multiturn absolute encoders, precise control of position minimizes wafer damage by supplying data at the resolution required for the process. This series can reproduce the characteristics of different encoders, simplifying maintenance and stocking requirements.

  • Following product families can be used
