Robots have become an indispensable part of everyday life. As fast and tireless helpers, they take on otherwise monotonous and strenuous human tasks in manufacturing and logistics, including assembly processes, the transport of goods, and heavy lifting. Robots are also used in ever more demanding fields, including large component assembly for aircraft fuselages or as cobots in direct collaboration with humans. HEIDENHAIN, AMO, NUMERIK JENA, RENCO, and RSF offer optimal encoders for all robotics applications.

Discover our highlights for robotics

Safe and high-accuracy motion for advanced robotics

For precision manufacturing processes and cobot applications, safe and highly accurate motion is essential.

Dynamic and dependable motion for conventional robotics

When it comes to cost, size, and quality, our solutions for conventional robot motor control are the answer.

Precise, linear movement to the point of operation

In many applications, robots must move themselves to their next point of operation, such as along a production line.

Dual encoders and secondary encoders for greater accuracy in advanced robotics

Motor feedback and position measurement all in one

The KCI 120 Dplus dual encoder provides motor feedback and position measurement in a single device. Installed downstream from the gear system, it enables the compensation of design-related inaccuracies in dynamic robots, such as joint elasticity, zero-position error, reversal error, and machining effects. The encoder’s purely serial EnDat 2.2 interface with functional safety permits deployment in applications such as human-robot collaboration.
