Metal Processing – new market potential for X-class product line

BOGEN´s magnetic measurement solutions are predestinated for industrial applications: They are immune against contamination, robust against vibrations and insensitive against temperature fluctuations. The metal processing industry´s high requirements concerning accuracy in drilling, milling and cutting can be fulfilled with BOGEN´s X-class encoders in combination with the matching scales.

Metal processing is another industry sector where highly accurate magnetic measurement solutions like BOGEN´s X-class can replace a lot of existing measurement systems. The leads generated at the world´s largest trade show for metal processing EMO show that the industry has huge interest in new highly accurate measurement solutions. BOGEN will follow up this market potential.

X-class received the title “Best of 2017”

With the INDUSTRIEPREIS, the German specialist publisher “Huber Verlag für Neue Medien GmbH” awards advanced industrial products with high economic, social, technological and ecological benefits. The expert jury awarded BOGEN´s X-class products in the category “Electrical Engineering” with the title BEST OF 2017, which makes us very proud.

The X-class product line from BOGEN revolutionizes the market of modern measurement technology due to its outstanding accuracy within the field of magnetic measuring systems. Where previously expensive optical systems had to be used to achieve the required measuring results, the use of more cost-effective and more insensitive magnetic measuring solutions is possible with X-class.


From May 30 to June 01, 2017, the international measurement fair SENSOR+TEST will take place in Nuremberg, Germany. Amongst others BOGEN will present the extension of the X-class product line: the new micro-encoder X-IKS19. With this product, measurement solutions can be realized in the smallest possible space because the very small measuring head is arranged flat above the linear scale. The measuring head and scale can be implemented in a space of 20 mm length, 6 mm width and 5 mm height. This makes the X-IKS19 the smallest available magnetic measuring head for industrial applications.

You find BOGEN´s stand in hall 5, booth no. 171. Our team looks forward to your visit!

BOGEN participates in Hannover Fair

BOGEN participates in Hannover Fair (24th – 28th April 2017). We appreciate your visit in hall 9, booth G27! Our team is willingly availabe for an individual advise on our products and measuring solutions and their implementation in your application.

One focus on BOGEN´s booth is the presentation of the magnetic measuring head X-IKS19 which is the latest development within the tuMaPos project and part of BOGEN´s X-class product line. For detailed information about the new micro-encoder X-IKS19 please visit the homepage.

Award for tuMaPos R&D member

Tiago Costa, member of the tuMaPos R&D team, has been awarded by the University of Lisboa. Within his master thesis Mr. Costa designed a scientific poster which outlines the use of magnetic measurement systems in industrial applications.

Workshop in Berlin, 20th Jan. 2017 – X-class variants in preparation

The Portugese tuMaPos members travelled to Berlin on January 20th, 2017 where the next workshop took place at BOGEN´s headquarters. The preparation of new X-class product variants, which shall be launched at Hannover Fair in April, was the focus of the meeting. Technical discussions and progress reports were exchanged. The progress of the work is clearly visible and the project is on the right track. The next steps in the innovation project have been agreed and the next workshop scheduled.

Hannover Fair is the world´s largest industrial exhibition. It will take place from April 24th to 28th, 2017. For the first time BOGEN will exhibit at this show independently with an own booth. The focus at BOGEN´s booth will be the X-class product line which is a result of the tuMaPos research project.


Workshop in Berlin, 12th Dec. 2016

The tuMaPos project team met at BOGEN´s head office in Berlin. One of the agenda items had been a review of the successful X-class product launch at the fair SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg (for more details click here). Furthermore the next steps for the next product iterations were discussed and an agreement achieved regarding the development priorities and roadmap.
