Benefits of Codewheels with Nickel Electroforming Process

Thin Metal Parts used advanced technology and proprietary processes to ensure the highest quality metal encoder wheel available today.

Encoder Code Wheels Product

Metal Encoder wheelsEncoders for high-precision applications

Metal encoder wheels (codewheels) are designed for high-precision applications in incremental and absolute rotary encoders. The encoder wheels can be produced using any of TMP’s available processes, depending on resolution specifications. These include the Nickel Electroforming Process, Chemical Milling, Laser Cutting, and more. The products are highly corrosion resistant and offer superior stability in high-temperature and high-shock environments. TMP also produces optical masks, available in any size or configuration.
