Grading technology

Most manufacturers of measuring tapes are using large wheels when grading, and then press the graduation by rolling off the scale on top of a steel band. This technique is easy to work with, but it can be some variations in the measurement scale because of the difficulty of getting a steady supply of steel band relative to the wheel.
