[VIDEO] Modern Encoder Applications [5 Popular Industries]

Encoders have long been a foundational component of many of the mechanical systems we use every day and the advanced ones we use to build them. In fact, at HEIDENHAIN, we developed the first precision measurement encoder in the early 1960s

[VIDEO] Different Types of Encoders and Their Applications

Updated 1/6/2021 Encoders play an integral role in almost every mechanical system that involves motion monitoring or control. There are a variety of types that work with different kinds of motion with different options for how they detect and communicate. Let’s explore some of the foundational elements and variables in the world of encoders: What […]

Trend-setting solutions from HEIDENHAIN for machining tasks in tool and mold making

Powerful TNC functions for perfect molds In tool and mold making, dimensional and contour errors need to be so low as to be barely measurable and must certainly never be visible. These requirements are increasingly at odds with demands for higher productivity and lower costs. Many powerful TNC functions of HEIDENHAIN controls offer possible solutions […]

Servo Motors for CNC Machines

Machine tool operators interact directly with the control, tooling and work envelope, but rarely do they handle or even see a machine tool’s feed motors. Yet, it’s one of, if not the most important piece of equipment for producing quality parts. A perfect code, dialed-in offsets, high-performance tooling–none of it matters if the motor is […]

Encoders for CNC machining applications

Few mechanical systems depend on a combination of speed, accuracy and repeatability more than the modern machine tool—especially in the age of multi-axis, CNC machinery and small-part, small-production runs. A metalworking operation is only as strong as its weakest link; one scrapped part not only inflicts added material costs, but also often affects the productivity […]
