The scaling behavior of criticality for spin-1 XXZ chains with uniaxial single-ion-type anisotropy is investigated by employing the infinite matrix product state representation with the infinite time evolving block decimation method. At criticality, the accuracy of the ground state of a system is limited by the truncation dimension χ of the local Hilbert space. We present four evidences for the scaling of the entanglement entropy, the largest eigenvalue of the Schmidt decomposition, the correlation length, and the connection between the actual correlation length ξ and the energy. The result shows that the finite scalings are governed by the central charge of the critical system. Also, it demonstrates that the infinite time evolving block decimation algorithm by the infinite matrix product state representation can be a quite accurate method to simulate the critical properties at criticality.
