Position measurement of the tailstock

The tailstock is an important part of a lathe or milling machine. The tailstock is used to support long workpieces by means of a centre, which catches in the centre hole on the front side of the workpiece. In order to detect the centre tip, compact draw-wire sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used. The measuring wire is connected to the centre tip and measures the displacement of the tailstock.
