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 the available processes at Thin Metal Parts, depending on resolution specifications. These include electroforming, chemical milling, laser cutting, and Mylar™ imaging. The products are corrosion resistant and offer superior stability in high-temperature and high-shock environments.
Thin Metal Parts is the industry leader in the manufacturing of encoders and codewheels. The proprietary nickel electroforming process creates the highest quality, most precise products available. Contact or call Thin Metal Parts at (719) 268-8300 for more information or to request samples of products.
Using three different technologies, custom metal parts can be built for thousands of applications for a large variety of industries. By combining multiple technology options, a hybrid precision part, unavailable anywhere else in the global marketplace, can be custom manufactured.
Thin Metal Parts regularly works with the aerospace, computer, and electronic industries to build custom precision parts used in industrial and consumer goods applications... parts such as metal encoder wheels, metal mesh, and print heads. In addition, custom parts are developed daily in research and development as the design/process engineer group teams with customers to develop prototypes and production items in medical, manufacturing, and scientific instrument sectors.
All products are custom manufactured to meet customer needs and specifications, including DFARS and RoHS compliance. These quick-turn, cost-effective, low tooling cost processes offer excellent production alternatives to traditional fabrication methods for metal parts in high volumes and prototyping.
