Helping The World Understand Earthquakes Better
A Brown University researcher turned to ETEL and HEIDENHAIN for the power and precision he needed to simulate the cause of one of nature’s most powerful forces in the lab. It’s been a passion project of Dr. Terry Tullis, an Emeritus and Research Professor in the Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences at Brown […]
How to Select A Servo Motor
Updated on: 12/20/2019 Servo motors are a type of electric motor (rotary actuator) that allows for precise control of position, velocity and acceleration. They employ a closed-loop system, meaning there’s a feedback device (like an encoder) that communicates with a control such as a CNC machine control. Magnetism controlled by electricity is used to drive […]
Next Generation RSF Kit Angle Encoder Introduced
Schaumburg, IL (August 2019) – RSF Elektronik is now offering a next generation kit angle encoder for motion feedback best suited for applications in robotics, semiconductor, medical and machine tool. Offered through parent company HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION in North America, this new encoder is available in both absolute (MCR 15) and incremental (MSR 15) versions. Both […]
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 […]
HSP Combats Contamination in High-Accuracy Positioning
HEIDENHAIN’s unique new signal processing ASIC HSP 1.0 for exposed linear encoders promises to combat all kinds of contamination during operation. It’s a breakthrough in position measurement for high accuracy applications such as semiconductor industry and automatic placement and measuring machines, among others.
New Angle Encoder Modules for High System Accuracy
HEIDENHAIN launches a new product family that is a merger of HEIDENHAIN bearing and angle encoder technologies. Resulting in the MRP 2000, 5000 and 8000 (as well as customer-specific variants), these unique modules contain bearing sets not conventionally available and are able to be integrated with various encoder types to yield highly stiff modules that are easy to install.
