First select the type of movement you want to measure. Here you can choose between a linear or rotational movement.
The position detection can be incremental or absolute. The incremental measuring method provides a relative position as well as direction of movement, which requires an assignment to a reference point (starting point) at the beginning of the measurement. This is done by homing the axis. The absolute measuring method provides concrete position information at any axis position. A reference run at the beginning of the measurement is not necessary.

With the help of a high-resolution, optical linear measuring system such as the LIKselect from NUMERIK JENA, a vehicle assistance system can be precisely adjusted. The challenging aspect here is the constantly advancing miniaturization of the alignment units with very tight installation spaces for the measuring systems. Here, every millimeter is crucial, and customer-specific requirements are often placed on the measuring systems, which are rarely found in suppliers' catalogs.
NUMERIK JENA offers the optimal solution for this with the LIKselect.
When manufacturing prostheses and implants, specific anatomical shapes and high dimensional accuracy must be taken into account to ensure optimal fit and function for the patient. With the help of 3D printing technology, prostheses and implants can be manufactured quickly, individually and efficiently.
By using optical linear measurement systems such as the LIKgo from NUMERIK JENA, the required precision and accuracy can be easily achieved in 3D printing processes. Thus, manufacturers of prostheses and implants can ensure a higher quality of their products while reducing manufacturing costs.
High-precision positioning of axes is the key to many achievements of modern technology. Particularly in industrial semiconductor production or in the fields of medicine, research and inspection of materials, positioning tasks are becoming increasingly important. The challenges here are the constant miniaturization of assemblies, the highly accurate and reproducible measurement of translations, and the reliability of the integrated systems.
Due to the very small size and modular design of the LIKselect optical linear measuring system from NUMERIK JENA, it is ideally suited for integration in very small, flat positioning tables.
In automation technology, specifications of components are monitored with the help of special camera and microscope techniques in order to perform a necessary evaluation or sorting of these. The positioning of the inspection technology is carried out by high-resolution measurement technology, which must be individually tailored to the requirements of the inspection system.
The linear optical measuring system LIKgo from NUMERIK JENA is ideally equipped for these tasks due to its characteristics.
