Successful LIDA 400 Exposed Linear Encoder Is Redesigned for the Future of Motion Feedback
HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION released the well-known LIDA 400 series linear encoder in the year 2000 and, since then, it has established itself in many applications including coordinate measuring machines, linear motion stages, wafer inspection, waterjet cutting, and a long list of others. Now, with advancements in technology, HEIDENHAIN introduces the next generation fully redesigned LIDA 400 series with several benefits and features.
Encoders for Linear Motors in the Electronics Industry
The semiconductor industry and automation technology increasingly require more precise and faster machines in order to satisfy growing demands on miniaturization, quality, and manufacturing cost reduction. Linear motors are gradually becoming more important in such highly-dynamic applications with one or more feed axes.
