Angle measuring modules from HEIDENHAIN simplify the setup of high-precision rotary axes by significantly reducing the time and effort for mounting and adjusting. In place of numerous individual components, the angle measuring modules from HEIDENHAIN are a combination of highly accurate angle encoder and precision bearing that are specifically matched to each other. HEIDENHAIN has already completed the necessary assembly and adjustments of all individual components. This means that the properties of the angle measuring modules have already been defined and tested according to the customer’s specifications. Simple mechanical interfaces eliminate all critical mounting processes. The elaborate matching of all individual components to each other as well as to the machine environment is no longer necessary, nor is the time-consuming testing. At the same time it is ensured that the specified accuracy is attained in the application.
Typical applications for angle measuring modules from HEIDENHAIN include laser trackers for metrology, high-precision rotary tables in measuring machines, and wafer-handling machines in the electronics industry. They can also be used on machine tools where only slight loads occur, such as on electrical discharge machines or in micro-precision manufacturing.
