Feedback Systems

Fagor Automation’s experience and knowledge has made us the first and only company manufacturing an enclosed steel-tape linear encoder of up to 50 meters with absolute technology and 10 nm resolution.
At Fagor Automation we use propietary technologies in all four fields in encoder manufacturing: mechanics, optics, electronics and software.


  • Linear and angular encoders – absolute or incremental- in different sizes for different space requirements. The measuring distance of linear encodersrange from 40 mm to 60 m, and the diameter of angular encoders range from 90 mm to 200 mm.
  • Non-contact linear encoders, absolute or incremental.
  • Absolute encoders with digital communication to CNCs from Fagor, Fanuc, Mitsubishi, Siemens, Panasonic, etc.
  • Linear encoders with 3 micron accuracy and 10 nm resolution.
  • Angular encoders with 2 arc-second accuracy and 0.01 arc-second resolution.
  • Steel tape linear encoders with mechanical tensor for reader insertion and extraction at both ends.
  • Patented own opto-electronic components.
  • Proprietary etching technology on several substrates: glass, steel tape and others.
  • Single window scanning.
  • IP-64 ingress protection against pollutants.
  • Accuracy certificate guaranteeing encoder quality..
