Heidenhain Logo

DR. JOHANNES HEIDENHAIN GmbH develops and manufactures linear and angle encoders, rotary encoders, digital readouts, and numerical controls for demanding positioning tasks. HEIDENHAIN products are used primarily in high-precision machine tools as well as in plants for the production and processing of electronic components.

With their extensive experience and know-how in the development and manufacture of measuring devices and numerical controls,Heidenhain creates the groundwork for the automation of tomorrow’s plants and production machines.

The following pages offer you an overview of the HEIDENHAIN product program. In the Length Measurement and Angle Measurement areas you will find position measuring devices such as linear encoders, length gauges, angle encoders and rotary encoders, in absolute and incremental versions, for industrial applications and for measuring laboratories.

Machine Tool Control presents the HEIDENHAIN contouring controls for milling and lathe machines, which on the one hand are designed for use on the machine-shop floor, but on the other hand these controls are also suited for automated production, such as in machining centers with tool and pallet changers.

In the Setup and Measurement area you will find the touch probes, which help you to reduce the setup times of your machine tools, as well as highly precise measuring systems for machine tool inspection and acceptance testing.
