Encoders for medical technology

Medical technology systems must ensure safety and patient comfort but also meet documentation and cost requirements during production. To meet these demands, you can rely on rotary encoders, angle encoders, linear encoders, and slip rings from HEIDENHAIN, AMO, LTN, NUMERIK JENA, RENCO, and RSF. These products deliver highly accurate, reliable, and long-lasting measurement capability to your specialized solutions for diagnostics, treatment, lab work, and medical rooms.

Imaging diagnostics

Medical diagnostics commonly rely on imaging procedures for a non-invasive look inside the body, including X-ray imaging, Computer Tomography (CT), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The emitter, detector, and patient must all be precisely positioned in order to obtain a detailed image and to keep the patient’s radiation exposure at a minimum.

Imaging technology is also used in the industrial inspection of safety-critical, high-load manufactured parts. Linear encoders, angle encoders, and angle encoder modules also ensure positioning accuracy in these systems.
