The MONORAIL AMS 3B, for example, is an integrated magneto-resistive distance measuring system based on the MONORAIL MR roller profile guideway. This ensures compact axes with distance measurement and guidance that is especially suitable for use in machine tool applications. No additional assembly or adjustment of the measuring system is required by the operator; In fact, it delivers cost savings in the design, manufacture, and maintenance of the equipment. And, by using the AMS 3B, accuracy and process reliability are improved
The integrated AMS distance measuring system from SCHNEEBERGER can be perfectly integrated into MONORAIL guideways – both roller guideways and ball guideways – and ensures exact travel distances with tolerances of ±5 µm/m.
