  • Includes 6 end cap mounts
  • Cut to required lengths
  • Aluminum frame and stainless cover protects magnetic scale
  • 8.5 x 16 mm (0.33 x 0.63") Cross section


Each one-meter section of magnetic scale includes six plastic end caps for mounting. When measuring a scale for cutting, measure the length of the aluminum channel before the end caps are installed. One meter (39") is enough for a three-axis DRO on most small mills.

The scale consists of an extruded aluminum channel with a magnetic strip in the channel. The magnetic strip is protected by a stainless strip. You simply cut the scale to the lengths you need and install the plastic end caps.

Measure the travel of your machine and cut the scales to the full travel plus 2.5". This allows for the width of the read head plus about 0.5" for over travel.
