HEIDENHAIN Product Spectrum


An Overview

HEIDENHAIN develops and manufactures linear encoders, angular encoders, rotary encoders, digital readouts, and numerical controls. HEIDENHAIN delivers its products to manufacturers of machine tools and manufacturers of automated facilities and machines, especially for semiconductor and electronics manufacturing.

A continuous drive to provide technically superior products in combination with reliability, closeness to the customer, and a practice-oriented frame of mind form the basis of HEIDENHAIN's efforts. Our competence in the area of linear and angular metrology is reflected by a large number of customized solutions for users. These include in particular the measuring and inspection devices developed and built for many of the world's standards laboratories as well as angle encoders for various telescope projects and satellite receiving antennas. Naturally the standard products also profit from these experiences.

The high quality of HEIDENHAIN products depends on special production facilities and measuring equipment. Masters and submasters for scale manufacturing are produced in a clean-room building, with special measures for temperature stabilization and vibration insulation, built especially for this purpose. The copying machines and the machines required for the manufacture and measurement of linear and circular graduations are also developed and built by HEIDENHAIN.
