[VIDEO] HEIDENHAIN and Infinadeck join forces to transform VR

If you’ve ever seen the Hollywood blockbuster, “Ready Player One”, you’ve seen one of the highest profile applications of HEIDENHAIN motion control; we’d tell you about the others, but then we’d have to track you down…just kidding! Meet George Burger. He’s the inventor of the Infinadeck. As the company’s website describes, “Infinadeck is the only […]

[VIDEO] How to design long-lasting, precision feedback into semiconductor production machinery

It’s one thing to find something that works. It’s another, to find something that works, can keep up with the high demands and resist wear and tear. There’s only one chance to get as much of that right as possible, in the design stage where the necessary components are identified and specific ones are chosen. […]

[VIDEO] Linear and rotary feedback for medical imaging solutions

There’s no room for error in medical imaging. Precise images and patient comfort depend on reliable and resilient motion control. That’s why machinery builders turn to the HEIDENHAIN Family of Brands time after time for solutions and advice. Using a CT scanner as an example, we take a quick look at some ways HEIDENHAIN linear […]

[VIDEO] Absolute vs. incremental encoders: What’s the difference?

  When it comes to choosing linear or rotary encoders, there are a lot of factors to consider. Chief among them are how to achieve the repeatability, accuracy and resolution needed for the particular motion-control application. The very first decision required to dial these factors in is often between incremental and absolute encoders. Both types […]
