Heidenhain Linear Encoders

Linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN for numerically controlled machine tools can be used nearly everywhere. They are ideal for machines and other equipment whose feed axes are in a closed loop, such as milling machines, machining centers, boring machines, lathes and grinding machines. The beneficial dynamic behavior of the linear encoders, their highly reliable traversing speed, and their acceleration in the direction of measurement predestine them for use on highly-dynamic conventional axes as well as on direct drives.

Depending on the encoder model, lateral and axial offsets of ± 0.2 to ± 0.3 mm between the scale and mounting block are permissible.
