The Matrix Measuring System features a Digital Readout.

Are all Digital Readouts the same?
Many linear measurement systems are based on optical principles. A light source and photo-detector are guided along a glass scale to "read" the overlapping patterns of light, which shine through or are reflected from the grating on the glass. This is a source of problems when measuring as this optical method does not work properly in the machine tool environment due to contaminants effecting the "read". Any machining process will cause a build-up of dirt, dust and grime carried by the oil and coolants. This same build-up will coat the glass grating and when this occurs the measurement stops, production stops and with it goes your productivity and profitability! With Glass scales -- if it doesn't see, it doesn't work.

Our Readout solution

Unlike glass scales, the magnetic scale technology  we use doesn't have to "see" to provide precise linear measurement. That's because as the machine moves the reader head "senses" precise magnetic graduations recorded on a metal rod or ribbon. So our system functions regardless of dirt, dust, grime, oil or coolant in the environment. Since the digital gauge is magnetic, its accuracy is unaffected by dew condensation and adhesion of coolants. The scale is made of metal, so it is highly resistant to oscillations and shocks.

No Comparison

Although glass and magnetic scales work on totally different principles, they are both guaranteed to provide the same scale accuracy. However, one of the most often overlooked sources of errors is the differing thermal expansion of work piece, machine and Digital readout scales.

Ideally, all three components should expand equally. With magnetic scales, they actually do! Glass scales can lag behind by almost 30%, so the scale can indicate a positioning error that may be quite significant over long lengths. Remember that a piece of steel one meter long will expand by 11 microns (half a thou) for every 1 degree C change in temperature.

Our digital readout is designed to work with our highly advanced measuring table, and delivers the technology and accuracy needed for precision measuring.

More Details

Our system features the The Sony ® MagneScale measuring technology.  Which comprises a magnetic scale and flux-responsive multi-gap head that detects linear or angular displacement. Permanent magnetic graduations of 0.2 mm pitch are recorded on a rod or ribbon made from ferromagnetic alloy, the use of a special recording head and a laser measuring machine guarantees these graduations are extremely accurate. The flux-responsive head detects the magnetized pattern on the scale as a signal corresponding to displacement.

Precision Quality at its Best

 We have combined our advanced design and technology with the precision quality of the Sony® Brand MagneScale to offer you the very best in linear measuring, the Matrix Measuring System. The Matrix Measuring System is used for both quality checks and production.

Matrix Measuring System is formerly known as AcQslide Linear Measuring System, manufactured by Crissman Tool & Machine.

Custom Diagonal Measuring Design
