Encoder Applications by Industry


In textile manufacturing machinery, encoders provide critical feedback for speed, direction, and distance. High-speed, precisely controlled operations such as weaving, knitting, printing, extruding, seaming, gluing, cut-to-length, and others are typical applications for encoders.

Incremental encoders are predominantly used in textile machinery, but absolute feedback is becoming more common as more complex controls systems are implemented.
