Wist Europe has its own partner for the production of optical encoder disks for a wide range of high-accuracy motion sensors/controls.
Using PEF process we “build up” a ultra-fine and detailed layer of nickel onto a mandrel such as glass. PEF is not to mistaken to Photo etching Milling were we etch through metal.
The PEF process enables superior results in extremely thin layer features, excellent edge definition, high tolerances and no tension and burrs.
At Wist Europe we have chosen to focus only on the production of nickel on a glass disks used typically for optical encoder disks due to the number of manufacturers in Europe are limited and the demand are increasing.
Our references shows that we able to match the price level and especially our startup cost are much cheaper..
