Meridian Laboratory precision encoder wheels are incredibly accurate and robust.  The process of molding ML6 polyurethane has been developed to produce tight tolerance and repeatable results.  Encoder wheels that are manufactured by Meridian Laboratory have a tolerance of less than .001”, and this is achieved without grinding.  This perfect molded surface not only provides superior friction but also prevents the material from wearing and giving false readings from the encoder.

Meridian Laboratory has stock sizes available but is also capable of producing custom wheels in as little as 5 days from order to delivery in an extremely cost-effective manner.

ML6 polyurethane encoder wheels are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and durometers to meet any of your most demanding requirements.

Why Precision Matters

While it’s easy to think “it’s just a roller”, it’s even easier to lose sight of how much you ask of your rollers and wheels, day in and day out. Keeping your operations running with a minimum of downtime for machine repairs, feed jams, tuning of encoder wheels, or other time wasters (and money costers) means upgrading to superior components for your application. If you expect and demand that your equipment do more, ML6 offers a proven upgrade you’ll notice immediately.
