The optical scanning method employed, with its very small signal periods and low interpolation error, enables high control quality and excellent positioning behavior. The added value for the machine tool: greatly improved accuracy and dynamic performance.
The LF linear encoders deliver consistently high accuracy. A high-quality, very low-wear ceramic coupling prevents wear-induced inaccuracy throughout the service life of the encoder.
Sealed linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN are very installer-friendly. As guided system, they provide wide mounting tolerances for fast and easy mounting.
