Heidenhain’s MRS encoder module series for robotic arms has been redesigned embedded bearings to better withstand outside tilting forces.
Heidenhain introduces dual encoder for robots
Heidenhain’s new KCI 120 Dplus rotary encoder provides both motor feedback and position measurement.
New camera system aids in automatic machine setup monitoring
In order to automatically monitor the setup situation and machining result with Heidenhain’s flagship TNC 640 mill-turn control, the VS 101 camera system has been introduced. The TNC 640 is Heidenhain’s versatile contouring control, especially well-suited for HSC and 5-axis machining on machines up to 18 axes. The new VS 101 camera system now enables the […]
A Key to Successful Production-Integrated Measuring – the Encoder
By Reinhard Kuhn HEIDENHAIN, Traunreut Product Manager An encoder’s coefficient of expansion and its tolerances will play a more significant role in future ISO standards for classifying coordinate measuring machines. A measuring room offers optimum conditions for precise measurements. But it has several disadvantages including high costs for the room, the machine and temperature stabilization, […]
Encoders for Linear Motors in the Electronics Industry
As more semiconductor machines incorporate linear motors, it is crucial to select the right position encoder. Encoders with optical scanning methods enhance the accuracy, speed stability, and thermal behavior of a direct drive. By Dr. Jens Kummetz, Marketing Application Development, Dr. Johannes Heidenhain GmbH The semiconductor industry continues to demand tighter precision and faster operating […]
