Since 1985, APPLIED IMAGE has been manufacturing precision CUSTOM encoders designed specifically to your needs. Starting in the early 1980's , we produced a myriad of designs, sizes, and types.

Most notable was the development of the flexible film encoder by Bruno Glavich (founder) in the mid 1980's which is still used in virtually all of the INK JET PRINTERS used in the world today. Our know-how producing ENCODER strips, discs, scales, gray codes , and receptor windows makes APPLIED IMAGE Inc. one of the foremost leaders in the art & science of producing such tight toleranced components.

APPLIED IMAGE Inc. offers custom and standard encoder discs, linear scales, and windows to meet your most demanding applications. With the accuracy of our equipment, traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, we can design and manufacture with guaranteed adherence to critical tolerances.

APPLIED IMAGE Inc. can assist you in identifying cost effective options for selecting the right material substrate in developing your encoder. Available materials include photo emulsion on polyester film, chromium, aluminum, gold or inconel on glass.

Our technical expertise in the fields of imaging science and micro-imaging affords you the right combination necessary for accomplishing even the most difficult of designs. Whether your needs are in printers and scanners, machine tools, robotics, industrial or military applications, let APPLIED IMAGE Inc., leaders in micro-imaging technology, provide for your CUSTOM ENCODER needs...on time & within budget.
