Seamless replacement: a suitable successor model is always available

Proven products naturally have their advantages: they are fully matured, their properties are well known, and there is a certain routine when mounting. However, just as naturally, the progress of technology brings new products to the market at some point. HEIDENHAIN places special emphasis on the transition from the proven product to the innovative successor model being a smoothly flowing action and not an abrupt break.

Angle Head Setup: We Can Help

Time and again, machining tasks come up that can’t be accomplished using a conventional machine configuration. This includes the machining of internal features, for example. In such cases, an angle head can help, but using one requires making a number of modifications to the machine, the control, and the NC program. The service technicians of the HEIDENHAIN Customer Service Department can provide assistance.

Cleaning and Repairing of Linear Encoders

The faultless functioning of a linear encoder is decisive for the accuracy of the machine or plant. But the function is affected by countless influences of the daily environment of the shop floor: dust, grease, oil, water and dirt are everywhere and anytime and accumulate on the linear scale or scale tape and scanning head. It is advantageous if there is a strong partner to assist you with a fast repair!
