Encoder Discs via Photo Chemical Machining

The Photo Chemical Machining Experts

Also known as rotary encoders or shaft encoders, encoder discs are used in a wide range of applications, from industrial controls to camera manufacturing. These devices often require intricate details to deliver the desired performance, which can be very difficult to produce via many manufacturing methods.

Using precision photo chemical machining techniques, Vaga Industries manufactures custom encoder discs that match our customers’ unique specifications. We can produce encoder discs from a variety of thin metal materials, including stainless steel, titanium, and Inconel. All our encoders manufactured via photo ething meet the highest standards of quality and the tight tolerances our customers and their applications require. We are ISO 9001 and AS9100C certified.

Why Use Photo Chemical Machining?

Photo chemical machining is a fast, efficient, and cost-effective alternative to other manufacturing processes such as stamping, punching, and laser cutting. Vaga uses photo etching to produce burr-free metal shaft encoders with none of the unwanted deformation other production methods can cause.

Whether your design is incredibly simple or incredibly complex, photo chemical machining can produce custom encoder discs that match your exact requirements—there are essentially no limits to the designs we can work with. No matter if you need two dozen pieces or two million, we can manufacture your custom rotary encoders with perfect precision and repeatability from the first part to the last.

Vaga offers industry-leading lead times, low, one-time tooling costs, and unrivaled, personalized service on each and every order. We also provide in-house forming and other secondary services, such as heat-treating and plating, to add further value to our products. Prototyping services are also available.
