To maintain control of the spindle position on the Z axis of a CNC machining center, the application requires a quality linear measurement instrument, free of recalibration, maintenance and mechanical wear.

MTS magnetostrictive absolute position sensors fit this specification and integrate easy into CNC Controls by means of analog or bus communication. With resolutions down to 0.5 μm, exceptional vibration tolerance and fast update times, the R series sensor is the right choice for CNC machines.
