Experience. Development. Success.

From the beginning we have dedicated all our efforts towards creating robust solutions for discerning customers. In the early years it was predominantly motors and generators that drove us forward; then fast, reliable encoders able to withstand extreme operating conditions were quickly added to the program.

Initially, we produced analog versions as was usual back then. Since the 1980s the increasing new opportunities presented by digital technology have gradually brought changes to the product range. Mechanical and electronic accessory parts were added as were engineering and assembly services. Today, we offer complete encoder system solutions for worldwide greenfield and modernization projects.
